Abstract:

The present study was carried out in the thoroughbred stall housed horses maintained at College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Bhubaneswar under hot and humid climatic conditions of Odisha with an objective to determine the effect of exercise on hematological and serum biochemical indices. Blood samples were drawn from jugular veins of the animals in the morning and 30, 240 and 480 minutes after exercise and subsequently assessed for haematological and serum biochemical parameters. It was confirmed that the mean total erythrocyte and leucocyte, haemoglobin concentration, Packed Cell Volume, total serum protein values increased immediately after the exercise, whereas the ESR, whole blood glucose showed decreasing trends. Further, the serum chloride level decreased significantly 4 hours after the exercise, but the values related to serum Na, K, Mg, Ca and P levels were not statistically significant after exercise in the horses. It can be concluded that the horses maintained under hot and humid climatic conditions of Odisha exhibited similar changes in blood when given exercise and the changes were of transitory nature. Further study is needed to be taken up to ascertain the facts responsible for a low erythrocyte count in these horses.
