3 [micro]L) was used to measure blood glucose concentrations with the veterinary glucometer, and another 50 [micro]L was used to measure packed cell volume
(PCV) by the microhematocrit tube method.

Ideally, complete assessment of erythrocytes includes evaluation of the packed cell volume
(PCV), total red blood cell (RBC) count, hemoglobin (Hgb) concentration, calculated RBC indices, reticulocyte count, and RBC morphology.
In addition, significant age-related differences were noted in red and white blood cell counts, packed cell volume
, hemoglobin concentration, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, fibrinogen level, and heterophils, lymphocytes, and eosinophils (P < .
Packed cell volume
results ranged widely, probably in response to increased oxygen demand for migration.
