Present study investigated the prevalence and hemato-biochemical changes observed in the mange infested Surti buffaloes and buffalo calves. For prevalence study a total of 401 animals were screened for the infection for a period of one year. Systematic and detailed appraisal of haemato-biochemical profiles as well as skin scrapping specimens were carried out in seventy five cases. Hematological analyses of blood samples were done to evaluate changes in Hb, PCV, TEC, TLC and DLC counts. Biochemical analyses of serum samples were done to determine the concentrations of total protein, albumin, globulin, A:G ratio and serum zinc levels by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). Infestation was found to be high in winter season. Infestation caused anaemia, increased TLC with eosinophilia. There was decrease in total protein as well as zinc concentration in serum in infested buffaloes. [Vet. World 2012; 5(4.000): 230-235]
