Abstract:
The current study aimed to evaluate the haematological parameters changes in obese dogs. A total of 210 adult dogs irrespective of age, sex and breed were screened for obesity. The adult dogs weighing more than 15 per cent of their ideal body weight were considered for the study and body condition score was assigned as whole number value 1 to 9 and dogs with BCS 8 to 9 were considered as obese. Eighteen obese dogs were undertaken for the present study for haematological parameters estimation. Six apparently healthy dogs excluded from the obesity base on selection criteria were also be taken as control for this study. The haematological parameters viz. Hb, TEC, PCV, TLC, neutrophils, were significantly higher in obese dogs whereas non-significant difference was found in lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, in obese dogs as compared to apparently healthy dogs.
