In reptiles, several studies show the correlation between good or poor health and changes of physiologic parameters, but the comparison among data, methods and biochemical analysis in sea turtles are difficult. This study was carried out to investigate the biochemical patterns of total protein, albumin, creatinine, urea, alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) in 100 loggerhead sea turtles (52 in good health, 16 with illness and 32 with serious illness). Blood samples were… CONTINUE READING
