ABSTRACT

A study was carried out to determine the haematological, serum biochemical enzymes and hormonal values in clinically normal 9 pregnant she camels (Camelus dromedarius) aged 8 to 16 years. The mean values of various serum enzymes viz. sorbitol dehydrogenase, aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phophatase and gamma glutamyltransferase in IU/L were 2.30 ± 0.90, 71.00 ± 3.0, 57.0 ± 16.5 and 20.0 ± 2.9, respectively. The serum levels of various hormones viz. progesterone, cortisol, insulin, tri-iodothyronine and thyroxine were 3.5 ± 1.5 ng/ml, 20.0 ± 5.4 ng/ml, 3.8 ± 1.2 μl/ml, 16.0 ± 3.6 ng/ml and 129.0 ± 16.0 ng/ml, respectively.
Key words: Alkaline phophatase, asparate aminotransferase, cortisol, gamma glutamyltransferase, insulin, pregnant she camel, progesterone, sorbitol dehydrogenase, thyroxine, tri-iodothyronine
