REPTILE HEMATOLOGY

Nejra Hadžimusić

Abstract


Determination of the number of circulating blood cells is of a great importance in clinical diagnosis. However, in some species, such as birds and reptiles, it is not possible to determine the number of individual blood cells using standard automated equipment, because of the specific morphological characteristics. For this reason, recognition of individual cell elements is crucial during hematological examination.

Key words: Hematology, reptiles, blood cell morphology
