Abstract: Numerous studies have provided pig blood biochemistry but there have been no hematology and biochemical study on Doom pigs of Assam. Doom pig are an indigenous pig of Assam. The hematology of Doom pigs of Assam was analyzed to understand their normal physiology. The aim of the study is to generate baseline data on the hematological profile of local pig of Mizoram at different age groups. A total of eighteen clinically healthy Doom pigs of different ages from Livestock Research Station, Mandira, Assam Agricultural University was considered for the study. Group I consisted of 2 months old piglets (weaning stage) and group II consisted of 5 months old pigs (growing stage) and group III consisted of 8 months (reproductive stage) and above old pigs. Hematological parameters were estimated in Automatic hematology cell counter, HD-Consortorium. From the study it was observed that most of the hematological parameters showed a significant difference (P<0.01) among the different groups. Thus it can be concluded that this baseline data will support the baseline data for interpretation of findings in clinical Biochemistry.
