Abstract: Indigenous pigs occupies an unique position in our animal genetic resource. Blood samples were collected from apparently healthy indigenous pigs (20 nos) from different parts of Tamil Nadu to study serum biochemical parameters. The overall mean for Creatinine (mg/dL), Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) (mg/dL), Total Protein (TP) (g/dL), Albumin (g/dL), Alanine amino transferase (U/L), Aspartate amino transferase (U/L), Alkaline Phosphatase (U/L), Calcium (mg/dL), Phosphorous (mg/dL) and Glucose (mg/dL) were 1.58 ± 0.09, 19.43 ± 0.99, 6.95 ± 0.11, 3.59 ± 0.06, 73.9 ± 4.41, 24.55 ± 1.69, 331.2 ± 19.07, 8.11 ± 0.18, 6.12 ± 0.20 and 117.05 ± 7.85 respectively. There is no significant difference among sexes in all the serum biochemical parameters analyzed. This study was carried out to present a baseline values of serum biochemical parameters for indigenous pigs of Tamil Nadu. These data provide valuable information for investigators using indigenous pigs as models in biomedical studies and useful physiological data for veterinarians and livestock producers.
