To study the effect of subclinical and clinical mastitis on haematological, biochemical and mineral profile of crossbred cattle an investigation was carried.  Haematology of animals revealed significantly (P0.05) higher average values of TLC in sub-clinically (9.20x 103/µl) and clinically (9.31x 103/µl) infected animals than healthy animals (6.87x 103/µl). Differential leucocytic count revealed neutrophilia nd lymphopenia in clinical as well as sub-clinical mastitis (SCM). Biochemical estimations of plasma samples from sub-clinically and clinically infected animals revealed higher average values of TPP (8.44 g/dl and 823 g/dl), albumin (2.447 g/dl and 2.31 g/dl), globulin (5.82 g/dl and 5.93 g/dl) and fibrinogen (0.74 g/dl and 1.21 g/dl) compared with control group (7.44 g/dl, 2.94 g/dl and 4.41 g/dl and 0.60 g/dl, respectively). Mineral estimation revealed significant (P0.05) change was observed in inorganic phosphorus, Mg, Na and K levels.
