Example text

Unlike primary erythrocytosis, there is no increased production of granulocytes and thrombocytes. It is also called Secondary Polycythemia. A common finding in toxicity studies is hemolysis, the lysing (bursting) of erythrocytes with the release of hemoglobin. Hemolysis occurs naturally in the spleen, liver, and lymph nodes, which each have abundant macrophages. 2. 3 Leukocytes Leukocytes, also known as white blood cells or WBCs, play a critical role in the immune system. The five major populations of leukocytes include neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, monocytes, and lymphocytes.

Arterial blood can be drawn from the femoral artery. Excitement or strenuous exercise causes increases in neutrophils. Fear and prolonged activity cause increases in lymphocytes and erythrocytes. Fear during sampling may cause splenic contraction resulting in increases in erythrocytes, hematocrit, and hemoglobin Ferrets: Small volumes of blood can be collected from the tail vein or by clipping a toenail. Larger volumes can be drawn from the jugular or cephalic veins or the heart of an anesthetized animal Gerbils: Small volumes of blood can be collected by clipping a toenail.

Corticosteroids inhibit lymphocyte production, especially in rats, mice, and rabbits. 6 Differential Leukocyte Counts Leukocyte data are typically presented as a total leukocyte (WBC) count and an absolute differential leukocyte count. An absolute differential leukocyte count presents cell counts for all leukocyte species in the blood. Neutrophils are reported as both band (immature) and segmented (mature) cells. Changes in the differential leukocyte count over time can tell us something about an animal’s health.
