BACKGROUND Lead is a persistent contaminant in the environment, and waterfowl are susceptible to lead toxicity from ingestion of lead pellets and fishing weights. Lead affects numerous physiologic processes through inhibition of enzyme activity and protein function, but its effects on commonly assessed avian blood values are incompletely understood. OBJECTIVES Our aim was to evaluate hematologic and biochemical changes associated with blood lead concentrations in trumpeter swans and Canada… CONTINUE READING
