Abstract:

The objective of the current study was to determine and compare the effects of pre slaughter stress on serum creatine kinase activity in Murrah buffaloes and Nellore sheep. Whole blood samples collected from a total of 170 buffaloes and sheep were used in this study.  Samples were collected from two groups of animals which include: 1) one day before slaughter and 2) few seconds prior to exsanguination to measure the concentration of creatine kinase (CK-MB) in serum.  From this study we observed that CK-MB activity was significantly higher in the samples collected just before exsanguination in both species than in samples collected one day before slaughter.  Although the magnitude of increase was slightly higher in buffaloes than in sheep, however indicates that preslaughter stress response affects serum creatine kinase activity in both the species.
