Abstract

Normal reference values for adult donkeys were established by studying the haematological parameters of 50 donkeys in Sokoto state. The mean values obtained for RBC, WBC, PCV, ESR and 4.68 × 10/ mm³, 10.17 × 10³/mm³, 30.28% and 48.46mm/20min respectively. Differential counts were as follows: Neutrophils, 48.84%, Lymphocyte 40.2%, Monocyte 7.12%, Eosinophils 2.54% and Basophils, 1.12%.
