Hematological Effects of Cadmium in Hybrid Isa brown

Imer Haziri, Bujar Mane, Arben Haziri and Izedin Goga

The aim of this work was to determine the effect of the moderated levels of cadmium, for a 19 days period, on the haematological indicators, in birds for eggs of hybrid Isa Brown. Birds are divided in four groups. One group was used as control and three groups were treated with different doses of cadmium sulphate (2 mg Cd/kg, 4 mg Cd/kg and 6 mg Cd/kg). The amount of cadmium salts was given to birds with drinkable water. At the end of the experiment, blood is taken in all 4 groups. The blood was taken in the crucibles with heparin in amount 100 UI heparin for each ml blood taken. In blood we have analysed: RBC, HGB, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, PLT, MPV, PCT and PDW. Statistical elaboration of haematological parameters was done with ANOVA method by determining the average of each indicator; SD, SEM and tD. Probability is determined by a tabular method. From the results we can conclude that haematological indicators generally have differences ascertained statistically between the control and experimental groups and within experimental groups during the use of cadmium, whereas the level of PDW does not present differences statistically ascertained.
