Résumé

L' effect a courte duree du sedatif Azaperone sur l' Hematocrite le taux d' Hemoglobine, des globules rouges et blancs a ete observe a 15 minutes d'intervalle sur la periode d'une Heure sur un echantillon de 5 cochons. Les valeurs Hematologiques ont enregistrees sur un tableau Hematocrite, le taux d' Hemaglobine et de globules rouges etaient en dessous des valeurs normales acceptable pour le cochon. les valeurs du taux de globule blancs sont restees constantes dans les environs de la limite superieure des valeurs normales. La conclusion est que l'azoperone a d' effect mesurable sur les valeurs du taux d' Hematocrite, d' Hemoglobine et des globules rouges du cochon.

ADETUNJI A AND OSUNBUNMI O. T

Abstract

The short-term effect of azaperone sedation on packed cell volume (PCV), haemoglobin (Hb) level, red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) counts was investigated at 15 - minute intervals over a 1 - hour period in 5 pigs. The haematological values were tabulated. The PCV, Hb and RBC values were below the normal ranges accepted for the pig. The WBC values remained fairly constant around the upper limit of the normal range. It was concluded that azaperone has a measurable effect on the porcine PCV, Hb and RBC values.
