Study of blood picture and some serum proteins in local chickens and domestic pigeon naturally infected by soft ticks.
AbstractOur study which conducted from 1/9/ 2019-1/9/2020, was including examination of 150 female bird(75-local chickens,75-domestic pigeon), the results were showed the total percentage of infestation 60%(90/150),in local chicken was65.333 % (49/75) while in pigeon was54.666%(41/75), also was diagnosed: Dermacentor variabilis and Argus persicus in ratios(25.333%)(19/75),(40%)(30/75) respectively in local chickens, 44%(33/75),10.666 %(8/75) respectively in pigeon, also noticed that was a significant decrease in the concentration of Hemoglobin, the blood packed cells volume, red blood cells, Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin, while there was increase in number white blood cells in tick-infected avian compared with Non-infected(control group), while the data of biochemical parameters of the serum, showed there were increased levels of total protein and albumin ,while decreased levels of globulin, glucose as well as cholesterol in infected avian.
