BACKGROUND Hermann's tortoise, Testudo hermanni, is currently on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list of endangered species. Reptile medicine relies also on laboratory analyses to evaluate health status, but reference ranges for hematology and biochemistry variables and protein electrophoresis in plasma of healthy tortoises are not available. OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to establish reference ranges for select hematologic and biochemical variables… CONTINUE READING
