The present work was aimed to study the haemato-biochemical alteration in mange infested camels in comparison to the normal healthy camels during winter and summer seasons. There was significant (P<0.01) decrease in haemoglobin (Hb) and neutrophils, while a significant increase in eosinophils, lymphocytes, aspartate aminotransaminase (AST), alanine aminotransaminase (ALT), triglycerides, urea and glucose were seen in mange infected camels during winter season. During summer season decrease in albumin content and an increase in total leucocyte counts (TLC), eosinophils, monocytes, AST, ALT, triglycerides, urea was observed. This study indicated that winter is most conducive for spread of mange infection and treatment during this period should be supplemented with supportive therapy along with acaricides.
