Description

Leukogram is one of most common tools used during clinical evaluation of a patient. This would be true for the fishes as well, however, available information is scattered through scientific journals and some clinical textbooks, and focuses on just a few out of more than 35,000 fish species. Further, many instruments that are routinely used in blood cell analysis do not work well, or at all, with fish blood for multiple reasons such as presence of nucleated red blood cells. Because of this, it is important for a clinician who wants to practice on (especially ornamental or pet) fishes, to learn how to distinguish the leukocytes in fish blood smears. This presentation on fish leukocytes will provide a practicing aquatic veterinarian with information how to take advantage of blood smears to collect more information about health status of fish.

Objectives

The Primary Learning Objectives are:
1. Veterinarian will understand the value and limitations of the fish blood smear.
2. Veterinarian will become familiar with major leukocyte types in fish.
3. Veterinarian will be able to prepare tools for collection and use rapid staining techniques to produce a readable fish blood smear.
