Abstract

Some hematological and biochemical parameters were determined in blood specimens collected from 16 clinically healthy gazelles (Gazella subgutturosa). They are bred in a large enclosed area in which they roam freely in Ceylanpınar, Şanlıurfa, Turkey. Average levels for the following hematological and biochemical parameters were found: WBC (10.09 ± 1.50 x 10^3/mm^3), RBC (11.7 ± 1.78 x 10^6/mm^3), Hb (18.85 ± 1.10 g/dl), PCV (51.64 ± 3.2 %), MCV (45.1 ± 0.86 fl), MCH (16.5 ± 0.23 pg), MCHC (36.68 ± 0.77 g/dl), platelets (315.70 ± 33.00 x 10^3/ml), glucose (66.6 ± 20.0 mg/dl), ALT (50 ± 12.0 IU/l) and AST (372.4 ± 75.0 IU/l), calcium (8.88 ± 0.26 mg/dl), phosphorus (6.9 ± 0.50 mg/dl), sodium (154 ± 5.1mmol/l), potassium (4.98 ± 0.37 mmol/l), and chloride (112.8 ± 2.70 mmol/l). Wide variations were recorded in the levels of WBC, platelets and glucose as well as in the activities of the enzymes ALT and AST.
