Arquivo Brasileiro de Medicina Veterinária e Zootecnia (Impact Factor: 0.24). 01/2010; 62(1):208-210. DOI: 10.1590/S0102-09352010000100028


The erythrogram and hemoglobin types in Canindé goats were determined. Twenty blood samples were collected from the animals and used for determination of packed cell volume (PCV), erythrocytes counts, hemoglobin concentration, calculation of mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), and electrophoretic separation of hemoglobin types. The values for erythrogram were: PCV 34.6±4.62%, hemoglobin 10.1±1.05mg/dl, erythrocytes 15.3±4.54x106/mm3, MCV 24.0±5.83fl, and MCHC 29.3±2.44g/dl. Electrophoretic separation of hemoglobin types revealed only one type characterized as hemoglobin A (HbAA).
