ABSTRACT

Effect of seasonal dehydration on creatinine clearance was determined on eight healthy female Indian dromedary camels ageing from 6 to 10 years. Dehydration period was of 24 days in winter season and 13 days in summer season. All animals were catheterised. The overall mean values of creatinine clearance were 582.41 ± 14.193 and 424.25 ± 10.45 ml/min during winter and summer controls, respectively. During winter and summer the mean values decreased significantly (p≤0.05) with the progression of rehydration phase. The decline in creatinine clearance was 72.99% on day 24 of winter dehydartion and 86.50% on day 12 of summer dehydration. Rehydration resulted in progressive increase in mean value during winter and summer where the normal levels were achieved on hour 96 of rehydration, respectively.
Key words: Camels, creatinine, dehydration, rehydration, summer, winter
