Abstract

The blood was collected from 15 healthy buffalo calves and 6 ‘mild’, 6 ‘moderate’ and 6
‘severe’ ascariosis affected buffalo calves and haematological and various biochemical parameters
were estimated. In haematological study involving packed cell volume(PCV), there was a significant
increase in PCV in moderate and severely affected buffalo calves. In the biochemical study,
parameters like calcium, triglycerides, cholesterol, globulins and albumin : globulin (A:G) ratio
showed no significant difference in mild, moderate and severe ascariosis as compared to healthy
buffalo calves. The blood phosphorus level of buffalo calves affected with mild and severe
ascariosis was significantly increased. The Calcium:Phosphorus (Ca:P) ratio was drastically
decreased in severe and mild ascariosis and moderately decreased in moderate ascariosis affected
buffalo calves. The SGOT levels were significantly increased in moderate and severe ascariosis
whereas the SGPT and total bilirubin levels were significantly increased in severe ascariosis. The
glucose and total plasma proteins level were significantly decreased in severe ascariosis.
