Keywords:Hematology, Erythrogram, Leukogram, Ovine
Influence of age and sex factors on blood count was investigated in healthy sheep of the Santa Ines breed, raised in the region of Piedade (São Paulo State). The hematocrit and red blood cell count presented higher values in younger females, and a gradual decrease occurred during animals’ ageing. In contrast, the total number of leukocytes was lower in younger animals and showed a gradual increase with their ageing.
