Abstract:
Iron is vital mineral for all the living organisms and is essential to multiple metabolic functions, oxygen transport in haemoglobin being the most important function. There exist limited uses of serum iron profile parameter study in anemic dogs with chronic or renal azotemia. The present study was carried out to observe the alteration in iron metabolism disturbance occurring in anemic dogs with chronic or renal azotemia (n=6). The mean ± standard error (SE) of serum iron analytes [serum iron, serum total iron binding capacity (TIBC) and percent transferrin saturation (%TSAT)] were measured by calorimetric analyser to estimate the iron profile status in the clinical cases. Among the serum iron profile, dogs with anemia of chronic or renal disease showed depletion of iron store that might be due to decrease in erythropoiesis which required therapy of iron and exogenous erythropoietin hormone.
