BIRGEL JUNIOR, Eduardo Harry et al. Influence of parturition and puerperium in the erythrogram of Saanen goats (Capra hircus), raised in the State of São Paulo - Brazil. Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 2003, vol.40, suppl.1, pp.14-19. ISSN 1678-4456.

Aimine at evaluating the influence of parturition and puerperium on the erythrogram of Saanen goats (Capra hircus) 360 blood samples were collected from 20 goats on 18 different moments, as described as described: 32, 16, 8, 4, 3, 2, 1 and ½ days before parturition, immediately after parturition, ½, 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 days after parturition. The blood samples were collected with EDTA and submitted to the following tests: erythrocyte counts (at the modified Neubauer hemocytometer, using Gower's liquid as a dilute); packed cell volume (using the microhematocrit method); hemoglobin concentration (using cyanmethemoglobin method); calculated blood indices: MCV - mean corpuscular volume; MCH - mean corpuscular hemoglobin; MCHC - mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration. The evaluation of the erythrogram did not show any significant variation that could be attributed to the pregnancy or puerperium.
