Title: Effects of splenectomy on blood constituents of goats
Author: Abdalla, S. E.; Abdelatif, Abdalla Mohamed; Hago, B.
Abstract: The effects of splenectomy on haematological responses were investigated in adult goats. The splenectomized group maintained lower (PCV) and (Hb) concentration. Reticulocytosis was reported in splenectomized animals. After splenectomy, the lymphocyte and monocyte ratios were lower. The neutrophils and eosinophils ratios were higher compared to the sham operated control. Splenectomy increased the thrombocyte count significantly compared to the sham operated control. Splenectomy also resulted in non-significant decrease in serum total protein; the serum albumin and urea levels were not influenced by splenectomy. The sham operated control and splnectomized animals had higher plasma glucose level after surgical operations. Serum Na level was not influenced significantly by splenectomy.
