(2007) and Sharma (2005) following ultrasound therapy in dogs suffering from HQW. The monocytes and eosinophils did not show any significant changes at any intervals in all groups.
Mild decrease in Hb concentration in dogs with HQW might be due to stress and pooling of the circulating blood cells in the spleen or other reservoirs secondary to decreased sympathetic activity.
(2007) also reported an increase in glucose level in dogs suffering from HQW when subjected to US and CDT along with corticosteroids.
The elevated level of ALP in dogs with HQW might be due to tissue injury and associated trauma (Maiti et al., 2007).
