ABSTRACT
The objective of the present investigation was to determine the species specific blood parameters for the domestic cat, the prevalent pet and companion animal in the country. Normal parameters of the blood of the domestic cat Felis domestica, the baladi type, were measured. Haematological parameters monitored were: Red Blood Cells (RBCs), Total White Blood Cells (WBCs), Haemoglobin (Hb) concentration and percentage and Packed Cell Volume (PCV). Biochemical parameters estimated included sodium (Na) and potassium (K) ion concentrations, cholesterol concentrations, total protein contents as well as albumin and urea levels. Enzymes assayed were glutamate oxalo-acetate transminase (GOT), glutamate pyruvate transminase (GPT) and alkaline phosphatases (ALP).
