Abstract:

Twenty four dogs brought to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex C.V.Sc. & A.H. Selesih suffering from demodectic mange were included in the present study. These were randomly allotted to four groups irrespective of sex, breed and age. Ten apparently healthy dogs were chosen to serve as apparently healthy dogs were chosen to serve as control. Various haematobiochemical parameters like Hb, PCV, TLC, TEC, DLC, MCV, MCH, blood glucose, total protein, albumin, globulin, A:G ratio of affected dogs and control were studied. In all the four affected groups, the mean values of Hb, PCV and TEC were significantly lower (P<0.01) and MCV and MCH were significantly higher (P<0.01). The mean blood glucose levels, total protein and albumin was significantly lower (P<0.01) with a significant increase (P<0.01) in mean plasma globulin in all the dogs suffering from demodectic mange when compared to corresponding values of healthy control group. Leucocytosis, neutropilia, eosinophilia and lymphopenia were also observed in affected group. A significant decrease (P<0.01) was also observed in albumin: globulin ratio in affected animals in contrast to healthy control group.
