Abstract: The present study was carried out to measure haematological and biochemical parameters changes in pica affected camels and its changes after supplementation of mineral mixture with salt in these camels. The proposed study was carried out in an organized camel herd at NRCC, Bikaner. The 18 severely pica affected camel were selected for study on the basis of clinical signs and divided into 3 groups, group A treated with mineral mixture and group B was given mineral mixture with common salt and one untreated control group (group C) to evaluate haematological and biochemical changes in different groups. Blood samples were collected every 15 days of interval up to 60 days for hematological and biochemical evaluation. The mean values of total erythrocyte count, haemoglobin, PCV, Neutrophils, total protein and globulin, that was initially low tend to increase in both treatment groups whereas lymphocyte count was decreased and were significantly similar to healthy control at 60th days in both treatment groups but remained significantly different in untreated group. However, salt treated group B has shown better improvement in haemato-biochemical values over Group A which was only on mineral mixure. The present study showed additional salt supplementation along with mineral mixture gives better results in cases of pica in terms of hamematological and biochemical parameters.
