Abstract: Among the gastrointestinal disorders, haemorrhagic gastroenteritis (HGE) is the most common condition of multiple etiology, prevailing in all breeds of canine. The present study evaluates the alterations in the haematological and biochemical parameters in different age groups of dogs suffering from HGE. A total of fifty (n= 50) dog’s suspected for HGE were selected and classified into two groups based on their age i.e., group-I (< one year) and group-II (≥ one year). Haematological and biochemical parameters of the both groups were estimated as per the standard procedures and analysed by student T- test (IBM®SPSS®Ver20.0 for Windows®). There was a significant decrease in the packed cell volume (PCV), total erythrocyte count (TEC), haemoglobin (Hb) and Potassium levels (P< 0.001).The changes in total leukocyte count (TLC), platelet count (PLT), blood urea nitrogen (BUN) alanine aminotransferase (ALT), glucose and sodium measured between the two groups were found statistically non-significant. It was found that, the deviation in normal hemato-biochemical parameters were more pronounced in group-I than group-II. In conclusion, the body physiological processes in canines with HGE were more affected at younger age indicating their prognostic importance.
