Sushil Kumar and Bipin Kumar
This study was carried out on 24 dogs. All the dogs were randomly divided into 3 equal groups (n=6) viz. A, B, and C based on treatment regimen irrespective of sex, breed and age. Six apparently healthy dogs were taken as control (Group D). Hemato-biochemical investigation were performed to measure TLC, RBS, TSP, Albumin, TSH, T3 and T4. The mean values of TLC in groups A, B and C were 13.19±1.14, 13.21±0.87 and 13.43±1.28 respectively,quite high in comparison to healthy group 7.89±0.42.RBS in group A, B and C were 69.71±3.84, 85.80±5.88 and 70.89±4.49 respectively, while 87.27±2.75 was in control. Post treatment value in group A, B and C were 79.03±3.63, 79.61±4.43 and 80.62±2.42 respectively. The total serum protein (g/dl) and albumin (g/dl) of healthy group were 6.12±0.10 and 1.60±0.10 respectively, and in treated group were2.49±0.04,2.65±0.99and2.78±0.09respectively.The mean value T3 (ng/dl), T4 (µg/dl) and TSH (ng/ml) were not differ.The spatial distribution of lesions were head, trunk and limb 36.5%, 40.5% and 23% respectively.
