BackgroundThere is a lack of published work on RIs for newborn buffaloes. Establishing blood gas and serum biochemical RIs for newborn buffaloes is important for monitoring health. ObjectivesThis study establishes blood gas and serum biochemical RIs of newborn buffaloes. MethodsTwenty-eight newborn buffaloes, 10-30days old, were selected. Thirty blood biochemical variables were analyzed. The Anderson-Darling test was used to assess the normality of the distribution. The Dixon test and the Tukey test were used to identify outliers. The RI and 90% CI were determined using standard and robust methods and the Box-Cox transformation. ResultsA total of 30 RIs for healthy buffalo calves have been reported in this study. RIs for blood gas variables were reported for pH, partial pressure of oxygen (pO(2)), partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO(2)), saturation of O-2 (SO2), bicarbonate (cHCO(3)(-)), base excess (BE), total carbon dioxide (ctCO(2)), and anion gap (AG). RIs for serum biochemical variables were reported for glucose (GLU), direct bilirubin (DB), total bilirubin (TB), AST, ALP, GGT, CK, LDH, creatinine (CREA), urea, cholesterol (CHOL), triglycerides (TG), Ca, P, Mg, Na, K, iCa, Cl, iron, total protein (TP), and albumin (ALB). ConclusionsThis is the first reported study covering complete serum chemistry and blood gas RIs for healthy 1-month-old Murrah buffaloes. (AU)
