Evaluation of Haptoglobin as a Prognostic Marker in Dogs Affected with Hepatobiliary Disorders

K. Lakshmi K. Padmaja Sujatha Singh


In the present investigation, the mean levels of the haptoglobin concentration was evaluated among 140 dogs affected with hepatobiliary disorders and compared with healthy control group dogs. Haptoglobin values were significantly declined among dogs affected with diffuse hepatic parenchymal disorders with ascites. While, a significant elevation of haptoglobin concentration was observed in focal parenchymal disorders, biliary tract disorders and diffuse hepatic parenchymal disorders without ascites as compared to the healthy control group.


  • Haptoglobin evaluation was carried out to assess the prognosis of the dogs affected with hepatobiliary disorders.
  • Haptoglobin values in dogs diagnosed with hepatobiliary disorders were recorded.
