The study attempted to obtain baseline information for plasma metabolites and blood enzymes of Himalayan Griffon Gyps himalayensis. The Himalayan griffons sampled in the study were rescued by the Assam Forest Department and the Bombay Natural History Society, from various mishaps. 3 ml of whole blood was collected from each vulture and biochemical analysis was conducted. The levels of Aspertate Amino transferase (AST), Creatine Kinase (CK) uric acid, bile acid, protein, albumin, globulin, A:G, glucose, calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium were estimated in Vetscan. The total cholesterol, triglyceride, creatinine, bilirubin, LDH, ALT, ALP and chloride were estimated spectrophotometrically using commercially available kits. The hormones T3, T4 and cortisol were estimated by radio immune assay (RIA) I-125 gamma counter. Although the data set is small it would be valuable for establishing the baseline information on blood bio-chemistry of Himalayan Griffon.
