Abstract

Greylag geese (Anser anser) migrate to the different parts of Iran including Sistan region, southeastern Iran. It breeds in Hamun lake in Sistan region. The current study was conducted to establish normal values of serum biochemistry and hematology parameters in greylag geese. Nineteen serum biochemistry and nine hematology parameters were measured in 31 healthy adult greylag geese from both genders (16 males and 15 females). With the exception of the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), serum biochemistry and hematology values did not vary significantly by sex. Graylag geese had greater total protein (TP), albumin, calcium, and phosphorus concentrations compared with some other waterfowl species. Additionally, ALP serum activity was drastically greater in greylag geese (mean = 1761 IU/l) than other waterfowl species. Serum uric acid concentration was lower for greylag geese than other waterfowls. PCV (%), Hb concentration, and WBC count were similar to those reported in some other waterfowl species.
