Dynamics of biochemical factors of blood in the therapy of hypocalcemic syndrome in africal grey parrots

Abstract


The dynamics of biochemical factors of blood and results of effectiveness of administrated therapy in African grey parrots with hypocalcemic syndrome are showed in this article. All clinically affected birds were divided into three groups. Control group comprised birds with owners that refused from suggested therapy. Birds in study groups were subdivided by the severity of clinical sings. In this study, we analyzed correlation between changes of biochemical blood factors, clinical sings and changes in life welfare of studied birds, by effectiveness of hypocalcaemia therapy. By administrated therapeutic correction we reached reference values of blood factors by 14th day of treatment in birds with mild severity of the disease. Birds with severe clinical sings improved their blood rates by 44th day of therapy. An objective control of clinical response was obtained in 87,5% of birds with hypocalcemic syndrome. As a result of conducted therapeutic correction welfare of affected birds in both studied group significantly improved.
