      The serum biochemical traits were analyzed using Humastar-300
      Serum alkaline phosphatase (ALKP),
      Serum aspartateaminotransferase (AST),
      Serum aniline amino transferase, (ALT)
      Serum cholesterol( CH),
      Serum creatinine (CREA),
      Serum total protein (TP)
      and
      Serum triglycerides (TRI)

      Hematological traits were analyzed using Abbott CELL-DYN 1800
      White blood corpuscles (WBC),
      Red blood corpuscles (RBC),
      Lymphocytes (LYM),Total cell count (MID),
      Granulocytes, (GRAN) ,Hemoglobin ( Hb),
      Hematocrit (HCT),Mean corpuscular volume (MCV),
      Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH)
      and
      Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).

      Results and Conclusion
      • Significant differences (P≤0.05)were observed in Serum Alkaline phosphatase ( ALKP) , serum aspartateaminotransferase (AST) and cholesterol( CH) levels of the infected and non infected sheep.
      • There were differences in values of all the other parameters, both hematological and serum biochemical parameters, though not significant.
      • It can thus be concluded that ALKP, AST and CH levels can indicate tehe extent of hepatic damage due to Faciola sp. in sheep
