RM Iqbal, AQ Mir, R Waseem, SA Beigh, SA Hussain, SU Nabi and HU Malik

The present study was conducted to gather information on hematological alteration in lice infested goats of Kashmir valley. The study was conducted on 32 lice infested goats and 6 non infested healthy goats. The present study revealed that there was a significant decrease (P<0.05) in hemoglobin, packed cell volume and total erythrocytic count in infested goats when compared to healthy goats. The total leukocytic count was significantly increased (P<0.05) in the lice infested goats. The increased leukocytic count was associated with significant increase (P<0.05) in neutrophils, significant decrease (P<0.05) in lymphocytes and significant increase (P<0.05) in eosinophils. However there was no significant difference in mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and monocytes between infested and non infested goats.
