Abstract

The present study was designed to determine the effect of two sources of drinking water on some
hematological parameters in female laboratory mice The animals were divided into three groups: First group
(control ) it given a physiological solution, Second group: the RO water was given and third group: the river
water was given.
Results: the results of the study showed a significant increase(p?0.05) in the erythrocyte, leukocytes count,
percentage of lymphocytes and granular cells ,significant decrease in Hb concentration and PCV percentage
in the second and third group when compared with the control group. while mean corpuscular volume
insignificantly decrease in the second group and significantly increased in third group. Results also showed
a significant increase in platelet count and monocytes percentage in the second group while it decreased in
the third group.
Conclusion: we conclude from this study that the water source and its quality have a significant effect on the
blood parameters of laboratory animals, and then influence on the animal’s health.
