A Profile of Serum Proteins, Albumin Globulin Ratio and Total Leucocytic Count in 6-10 Months Old Healthy and Diseased Buffalo Calves

Muhammad A.Khan, Muhammad Younus, R.Z.Hussain, K.H.Chughtai.

One hundred and fifty samples were collected from 100 healthy and 50 diseased buffalo calves of 6 to 10 months of age. The samples were tested for total serum protein (TSP), serum albumin (SA), serum globulin (SG) and total leucocytic count (TLC). A gradual increase in TSP value was observed with an increase of age. The TSP values for diseased buffalo calves varied significantly as compared to healthy calves. There was a gradual increase in average values of SA, SG and TLC in both healthy and diseased calves with the increase of age from 6 to 10 months. Serum globulin and TLC values in diseased calves were significantly higher than healthy calves whereas SA values were significantly lower in diseased calves as compared to healthy calves. Increase in SG or TLC values and decrease in SA values in diseased calves were observed in those, which were suffering from diarrhea, fever facioliasis and nematodiasis.

Key words: Total serum protein; serum albumin; serum globulin; total leucocytic count; Pre-pubertal buffalo calves
