Eritrograma e variantes de hemoglobina em caprinos da raça Canindé [Erythrogram and hemoglobin types in Caninde goats]

Arquivo Brasileiro de Medicina Veterinária e Zootecnia (Impact Factor: 0.24). 02/2010; 62(1):208-210. DOI: 10.1590/S0102-09352010000100028

ABSTRACT

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).

    ABSTRACT: Objetivou-se com este trabalho estudar o perfil hematológico de caprinos (Capra hircus) da raça Canindé, criados no Estado do Rio Grande do Norte, como também a busca de valores de referência que se adequem à nossa região. Foram coletadas amostras sanguíneas de 58 animais clinicamente sadios, distribuídos em 4 grupos (machos acima de 5 meses, fêmeas gestantes, fêmeas não gestantes e filhotes até 4 meses de idade). A partir de única amostra de sangue de cada animal foram realizados o eritrograma (contagem de hemácias, hematócrito, hemoglobina, volume corpuscular médio e concentração de hemoglobina corpuscular média) e o leucograma (contagem total e diferencial de leucócitos). Os dados obtidos foram avaliados por meio do teste de Tukey para variáveis paramétricas e Kruskal-Wallis seguido pelo teste de Dunn para não paramétricos em nível de significância de (p<0.05). Os resultados apontam para existência de maiores quantidades de He nos machos adultos e fêmeas não gestantes, diferente do que ocorre com o VCM; já com relação ao leucograma temos que os eosinófilos mostram-se mais elevados nas fêmeas adultas e os monócitos se elevam quando na presença da gestação. Os valores deste trabalho podem servir de referência para raça Canindé, tornando possível futuras interpretações para os parâmetros verificados, além de subsidiar novos estudos em animais hígidos ou doentes. Mostra a necessidade de pesquisas que evidenciem as condições semiáridas de manejo e alimentação, bem como a avaliação dos fatores de variação, sobre constituintes do sangue, que levem em conta o sexo, a idade e estado fisiológico dos animais.

    ABSTRACT: This research was carried out to evaluate the influence of supplementation with concentrate on hematological profile of Morada Nova sheep in last third of pregnancy and postpartum, as well as comparing the values obtained in different categories (pregnant females, postpartum, and lambs). Eleven ewes it the last 75 days of pregnancy and the first 75 days of lactation and eight lambs born from the ewes allotted in completely randomized design and split-plot arrangement in time were used. During the experimental period, the animals remained in Andropogon gayanus pasture. Late in the afternoon they returned to the center of management to receive the concentrate supplementation with 19.17% of crud protein. Blood samples were collected from the 75th day of pregnancy to weaning at 75 days of lactation, every fourteen days. Blood samples were taken always in the morning, before the animals were released into the pasture, by puncturing the jugular vein, for complete blood count. Neither the erythrocyte profile nor the leukocyte profile was affected by the different levels of supplementation (P>0.05). The animal category had a significant effect (P<0.05) on hemoglobin and erythrocyte number. The mean hemoglobin values did not differ (P>0.05) between pregnant ewes (7.74 g/dL) and ones in postpartum (7.67g/dL) as well as the total count of red blood cells of the lambs (8.14 x 106/µL) did not differ (P>0.05) from females in postpartum (9.16 x 106/µl). When comparing between pregnant and postpartum ewes for the mean hematocrit values, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration and total protein did not differ (P>0.05). The highest values were observed in these animals. The total white cell count was higher (P<0.05) in pregnant and postpartum ewes than lambs. The concentrate supplementation did not affect the blood profile of animals, but the animal category exerted influence on erythrocyte and leukocyte hematological parameters.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to determine the influence of climatic conditions on the hematological profile of Saanen and mixed-breed (1/2 Saanen x 1/2 Anglo-Nubian) goats, as well as to define reference values for these animals bred in Ceara, Brazil. Thirty goats were utilized and blood samples were collected monthly during the rainy (February to May) and dry (August to November) periods to obtain an erythrogram a leukogram. The averange were compared by the t-Student test and Mann Whitney test, with parametric and non-parametric distribution of the data, respectively, where p<0.05 was considered significant. A study was carried out of simple Pearson correlations of the hematological parameters with environmental and physiological variables. The number of red blood cells (RBCs) was higher in the Saanen goats and in the rainy period, while the hematocrit was higher in the dry period (p<0.05). The leukocytes and lymphocytes were higher in the 1/2S1/2 AN goats in the two periods (p<0.05). In the two genotypes, the leukocytes and lymphocytes were higher in the dry season and the segmented neutrophils higher in the rainy season (p<0.05). The other parameters did not differ (p>0.05). The RBCs and segmented neutrophils displayed a negative correlation with air temperature, but positive with relative humidity and rectal temperature (p<0.05). The hematocrit positively correlated with air temperature and respiratory rate (p<0.05). The leukocytes and lymphocytes showed a negative correlation with rectal temperature (p<0.05). It was therefore concluded that Saanen females are more affected by climatic variations and that the rainy season has a greater negative impact on hematological parameters. The values obtained could serve as a reference for these genotypes in Ceara.
