PHYSIOLOGIC AND MORPHOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS IN NEONATAL MOOSE AND THEIR COWS IN ALASKA
Blood chemistry, hematology and morphometric measurements from moose (Alces alces gigas) calves and their post-parturient mothers from the Kenai Peninsula, Nelchina Basin, and Susitna Basin, Alaska are presented. Comparison of blood parameters among neonates were generally uniform and differences detected were negligible. The post-parturient cows were at a physiological low when compared to non post-parturient cows. The calves also reflected low levels of critical blood values. The physiologic and morphometric measurements provide baseline data for future comparisons of post-parturient cows and neonatal calves.
