Hi DrO
What is the normal value for a yearlings Neutrophils??? Did I miss it somewhere? I was told my guys WBC *total* was OK but the Neutrophils were low at 2600. Vet is putting him (950#'s) on Doxy, 13 tabs BID.
He's had a cough and some snot for the last 2 weeks. No temp, eating like the pig he is and just a tad less active, but it is 90+ degrees. Kidney and liver values normal.
Thanks
Barbara

Hello Barbara,
No I don't think I have blood values anywhere the interpretation of them is so subject to missuse if all you are looking at is values. Without looking it up low normal is probably somewhere around 5000. The low neutrophils in your case sounds like a response to viral infection and a common response assuming thew other features of the neutrophils was also normal.
