CS Shrivastava, S Solanki and S Gaherwal
The present study was aimed with study the haematological alteration in Fasciola hepatica infected goats. The study duration was one year in which summer, rainy and winter season included. Total 60 goats were included for this study. Goats were divided in two groups one was slaughter house and second was house hold. Blood samples were taken from the jugular vein into evacuated EDTA tubes and stored at 4 °C. Samples were analyzed within 12 h. In these samples Total leucocytes count (TLC) Differential leucocyte count (DLC), Total erythrocyte count (TEC), packed cell volume (PCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) pictogram (pg), mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were observed. In all three season TEC, Lymphocytes, PCV and MCHC value was decreased as compared to control value. TLC, Eosinophiles, MCH and MCV value was increased as compared to control value. Neutrophile, Basophile and Monocytes fluctuated as compared to control value in house hold and slaughter house goats. Haematological values highly altered in rainy season then winter and followed by summer season. The results of present can be useful in early diagnosis of goat fascioliasis.
