Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the blood parameters of pregnant and non-pregnant does kept under semi-arid environment of Tiaret, Algeria. Thirty four does, from the local population of rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus domesticus), were used in this study (fourteen pregnant and twenty non-pregnant).

The animals were housed in single rabbit cages in suitable conditions. Blood samples were analysed for the number of red blood corpuscules (RBC), hemoglobin concentration (Hb), hematocrit (Ht), average volume of red blood corpuscules (MCV) and total numbers of leukocytes (WBC), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and platelets number using an automatic cell counter. In this study, most parameters were influenced by the reproductive status of the does.
