Analysis of blood has been commonly used in the clinical assessment of the health status of birds and typically encompasses a suite of haematological assays. Determination of the heterophil to lymphocyte (H/L) ratio has been commonly reported as an alternative measure of leukocyte values, particularly in studies of naturally occurring physiological influences on birds. Relatively few studies have assessed the H/L ratio values of birds undergoing haematological assessment as part of an… CONTINUE READING
