We evaluated 90th percentile reference intervals for hematologic and biochemical analytes from 45 mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) and determined the effects on these levels from sex, age, capture method, capture intensity, capture month, and region of the Washington Cascade Range. Mountain goats captured by helicopter darting had a lower percent neutrophils and higher percent lymphocytes than did those captured by darting from the ground. Helicopter darted mountain goats had higher levels… Expand

TLDR
Although the small sample size limits the interpretation of these findings, RIs were determined by a robust method using the central 95th percentile, and the results were similar to those previously reported for farmed nutria. Expand
HEMATOLOGY AND SERUM BIOCHEMISTRY OF FREE-
Information on reference blood values in the literature is lacking for many wild rodents. In this study, comprehensive reference intervals (RIs) for a wide range of analytes from 101 healthyExpand
Biochemical and hematological profile of different breeds of goat maintained under intensive production system
TLDR
The data of the present study could serve as reference values in the realistic evaluation and improving the management practices, nutrition, and monitoring health status and diagnosis of diseases since this is the first time that biochemical and hematological parameters were determined in Aardi, Damascus and Barbari goats managed under an intensive production system in Kuwait.

Haemato-biochemical profiles of indigenous goats (Capra hircus) at Chittagong, Bangladesh
TLDR
The results of the present study demonstrate the normal haemato-biochemical values of two local goat breeds as well as some significant variation of parameters between two goats whereas some shows no significant variation at all. Expand
PLASMA DIAGNOSTIC ENZYME PROFILE OF ASSAM HILLY GOATS REARED IN MIZORAM, INDIA
A study was undertaken to evaluate the plasma diagnostic enzyme profile of Assam hilly goats in Ago climatic condition of Mizoram. Blood samples were collected from adult Assam hilly goats, plasmaExpand
Influence of body condition score on the metabolic and reproductive status of adult female Kacang goats
TLDR
Kacang goats with poor body conditions showed ovarian dysfunction, and the levels of TP, ALB, and cholesterol in follicular fluid were related to the blood metabolite levels. Expand
Hemato-biochemical parameters of Pesti-des Petits Ruminants (PPR) affected goats in Chittagong, Bangladesh
TLDR
The lymphocyte content in blood was significantly increased where as the total protein and albumin percent were decreased in the goats affected with PPR. Expand
Determinação de valores de referência séricos para os eletrólitos magnésio, cloretos, cálcio e fósforo em ovinos das raças Dorper e Santa Inês
TLDR
Significant statistical differences are revealed in reference ranges obtained for the electrolytes calcium and magnesium concerning the variable race, and forThe electrolyte phosphorus in the variable age and, when compared with reference values already published, proved the existence of significant differences. Expand
Study of The Experimentally Zinc Deficiency in Iraqi Local Breed Goats
TLDR
It is concluded from this study that zinc deficiency clearly affects the overall health status and may eventually lead to economic losses in local goats. Expand
Seasonal Altitudinal Movements of Mountain Goats
TLDR
W winters were generally longer than summers for mountain goats I studied, suggesting that the common perception of mountain goats as inhabitants of alpine and subalpine terrain is biased, because they spent the greater part of the year at lower elevations. Expand

BIOCHEMICAL AND HEMATOLOGIC REFERENCE INTERVALS FOR FREE-RANGING DESERT BIGHORN SHEEP
TLDR
These reference intervals for hematologic and biochemical analytes using central 90th percentile nonparametric analyses should be robust and applicable to other free-ranging desert bighorn sheep populations. Expand
BLOOD AND URINARY PROFILES OF FREE-RANGING DESERT MULE DEER IN ARIZONA
TLDR
It is demonstrated that urinary data are a valuable supplement to serum data in demonstrating effects of intense physical exertion, and both forms of data emphasize the need to assess capture-related excitability as a source of variation in blood and urine characteristics of free-ranging desert mule deer. Expand
HEMATOLOGY AND SERUM BIOCHEMISTRY VALUES OF DUSKY-FOOTED WOOD RAT (NEOTOMA FUSCIPES)
TLDR
Serum chemistry values and complete blood counts were determined for 36 wild dusky-footed wood rats from Sonoma and western Yolo County, California in summer and spring 2001 and provide valuable baseline information for use in further medical studies performed with this species. Expand
HEMATOLOGY AND PLASMA BIOCHEMISTRY REFERENCE RANGE VALUES FOR FREE-RANGING DESERT TORTOISES IN ARIZONA

Seasonal and annual differences in hematology and blood chemistry were related to rainfall patterns, forage availability, and physiological condition. Expand
REFERENCE INTERVALS AND PHYSIOLOGIC ALTERATIONS IN HEMATOLOGIC AND BIOCHEMICAL VALUES OF FREE-RANGING DESERT TORTOISES IN THE MOJAVE DESERT
TLDR
Clinical laboratory data was obtained and analyzed from free-ranging desert tortoises at three sites in the Mojave Desert between October 1990 and October 1995, to establish reference intervals, and to develop guidelines for the interpretation of laboratory data under a variety of environmental and physiologic conditions.

Normal Hematologic and Serum Biochemical Reference Intervals for Juvenile Wild Turkeys
TLDR
Blood samples taken from 48 4-mo-old wild turkeys were used to establish reference intervals for hematology and serum chemistry values, and aspartate transaminase and lactate dehydrogenase activities were assayed. Expand
Seasonal patterns of weight, hematology, and serum characteristics of free-ranging female white-tailed deer in Minnesota
TLDR
Seasonal patterns were most evident for hemoglobin concentration, red blood cells, packed cell volume, serum total protein, urea nitrogen, Creatinine, the urea N to creatinine ratio, triiodothyronine, cortisol, and potassium. Expand
EFFECTS OF CAPTURE ON BIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS IN FREE-RANGING BIGHORN SHEEP (OVIS CANADENSIS): EVALUATION OF NORMAL, STRESSED AND MORTALITY OUTCOMES AND DOCUMENTATION OF POSTCAPTURE SURVIVAL
TLDR
Although the net-gun appears to be one of the safest methods of capturing individual bighorn sheep, based on evaluation of capture data and biological parameters, it may not be associated with the best long-term survival in some bighORN sheep. Expand
Effects of winter undernutrition on body composition and physiological profiles of white-tailed deer
TLDR
Elevated packed cell volume, serum calcium, cholesterol, triglycerides, and cortisol were associated with reduced food intake, and characteristics reflected initiation of nutritional recovery after nutrition improved, and diminished serum urea nitrogen, thyroxine, urinary urea fertilizer, and potassium: creatinine wereassociated with reducedFood intake.
