    Abstract : The aim of our study was to determine the difference of some blood morphology and serum biochemistry parameters in 7-month-old (females and males) standard dark minks (Mustela vision; n=85). The average number of red blood cells (RBC) in blood of standard dark minkminkSubject Category: Organism Names

    females (6.47±0.10×1012/litre) and white blood cells (WBC) (6.70±0.19×1009/litre) were significantly lower (p<0.001) when compared with males, respectively, (RBC 9.41±0.24×1012/litre) and WBC (9.32±0.14×109/litre).
