Abstract

This work establishes reference values for serum protein and albumin and serum activities of AST and GGT of Santa Inês sheep and evaluates the sexual and age influence on these values. Blood samples were collected from 161 clinically healthy sheep. The results allowed to establish the following reference values 5,86 + 0,96 g/dL (P>;0,05) for serum protein, 2,33+0,43 g/dL (P>;0,05) for albumin, 63,25+27,52 U/L (P>;0,05) for AST and 28,45+14,53 U/L (P>;0,05) for GGT. The result's analysis also allowed concluding that age and sex influence on albumin serum concentrations and AST serum activity and that GGT serum activity suffer age influence.
