Abstract

Blood samples were collected from 12 clinically normal (CN) and 12 clinically abnormal (CA) captive houbara bustards (Chlamydotis undulata macqueenii). Total white blood cell counts for each group were carriedout, followed by differential white cell and thrombocyte counts. One hundred thrombocytes from each bird were also measured using a micrometer eye piece and oil immersion light microscopy. The CA birds had significant increases both in the total white blood cell count and in thecounts for heterophils, monocytes and basophils. This was associated with a significant thrombocytosis. The thrombocytes from the CA birds were also found to be significantly larger ('mega' thrombcytes) than those from the CN birds. These results suggest that the increase in thetotal white blood cell count in chronic inflammation in the houbara bustard is mainly due to an increase in the number of heterophils, monocytes and basophils. These results also suggest that both the thrombocyte count and the thrombocyte morphometrics may be important components of routine diagnostic haematological investigations in houbara bustards.
