    Default Normal Blood Chemistry Values

    Hi all...does anyone have normal blood chemistry values for Eastern Grey's, and if so would you be willing to share them with me? My five year old Eddie is still having health issues. The Vet. did a blood work-up but has no "normals" to compare. Comparing to normal rat values, his calcium/phosphorus ratios are in line, but she is concerned about his kidneys. Any help is appreciated

    On the following page there is an image with lab reports for a squirrel and one column gives reference ranges. These ranges are for rodents, however, not squirrels specifically. I've never seen ranges specifically for squirrels.

    I have lab values farelli... maybe look in chichi's thread.. I will try to relocate them, but am having PC issues... they are here in my computer somewhere.. and I know I have posted them in the past... for SQUIRRELS. I have hard time opening and sharing some of my files as I am not computer savy...

    Here is a link from an old study that was conducted in Florida. It has the mean values for some chemistries in eastern grey squirrels.

    Maybe this will help.

    Thanks JIT. I think that should be a sticky. This question comes up fairly regularly and I've never seen that before.

    I have a question and it's too late for my Andi but may help someone else. When I made Andi's vet appt when she first took ill this last time, I came here and copy/pasted the blood values in an email to my vet with a heads up that I wanted BW done. Years ago we had taken a small amount of blood from her by clipping a nail until it bled tho I can't recall why. So at her appt he said very sadly " I'm sorry Kat but to do complete blood work we would need a good amount of blood for a tube , not just a drop from her nail, and I can't imagine how to get that much blood from her " and I couldn't either Just out of curiosity does anyone know how you'de get enough blood to run ?

    Kat , forever missing Andi .

    I was looking through my files and found a pdf that contains not just the few blood values as the Gray Squirrel study, but other values for blood in great detail. This one is more recent than the one done in Florida in the 70's . I hope this info will be of use to the vets that aren't familiar with this data source.

    Scroll down to see Table 2 for pertinent blood value data from above posted link to pdf file.
