Studied on clinico-haematological and blood biochemical profiles in parasitic infected and treated buffalo calves (n=60) were carried out. The clinical symptoms observed during worm infestation were weakness, anorexia, emaciation, foetid diarrohea, pale mucus membrane and reduced body weight. Haematological studied revealed lower haemoglobin, packed cell volume (PCV) and total erythrocyte count (TEC) while total leukocyte count (TLC) values were found to be increased. In differential leucocyte count, the lymphocyte percentage was decreased while eosinophil and neutrophils percentage were increased. In erythrocyte indices, the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) value were increased whereas mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) was decreased. The biochemical parameters of worm infested calves showed decreased level of serum glucose, serum protein and albumin. The mean alanine amino transaminase (ALT) and aspartate amino transferase (AST) values were increased in worm infection. Thus, it may be concluded that worm infestation in buffalo calves leads to anemia, eosinophilia, hypoglycemia and hypo proteinimia while increased activities of serum enzymes.

Key words: Worm Infestation, Hematology, Biochemical Profile, Buffalo Calves.
