ABSTRACT
The blood biochemical parameters were investigated in a yak (Bos grunniens L) after intravenous administration of 5 mg/kg enrofloxacin. Blood samples were collected from the jugular vein daily for 5 days after the drug administration. Heparinized bloods were collected for mean corpuscular volume (MCV), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), hemoglubin (Hb) estimation and serum was collected for estimation of total protein, albumin, globulin, urea and blood glucose. Results of hematological and blood chemistry profile revealed that enrofloxacin did not change these parameters significantly. Therefore, the drug might be used safely in the yaks.
