The results of present study has revealed a significant increase (P less than 0.05) of total WBCs, MSNC, and basophils in strangles affected horses, while a non significant difference was observed (P greater than 0.05) among values of lymphocytes, eosinophils, basophils, erythrocytes, hemoglobin and packed cell volume.
(2011) who also reported total WBCs, MSNC, basophils, lymphocytes, eosinophils, basophils, erythrocytes, hemoglobin and packed cell volume in strangles affected equines in Pakistan.
Total white blood cell count (WBC), mean segmented neutrophil count (MSNC), total lymphocye count, total monocyte count, total eosinophil count, total basophil count, total erythrocyte count (EC), packed cell volume (PCV), and hemoglobin (Hb) concentration were estimated using a haematological analyser.
In the present study, total WBCs, MSNC and monocytes were significantly increased (P less than .05), whereas the concentration of lymphocytes was significantly decreased (Pless than.05) in infected mules.
