Abstract: In the present study twenty four sub-clinical ketotic goats and six healthy goats were used to observe biochemical, hematological alteration of sub-clinical ketosis. Goat suffered from sub-clinical ketosis had higher concentration of β-hydroxy butyrate (ketone) in blood and lower level of serum glucose, total serum protein, total cholesterol, sodium, potassium, haemoglobin (Hb), total erythrocyte count (TEC) and total leucocyte count (TLC). Biochemical and Haematolical studies of the goat can help in the diagnosis of sub-clinical disease.
