The aim of the present study was designed to determine alterations in some biochemical parameters associated with traumatic reticuloperitonitis (TRP) in the local buffaloes at Ninevah Governorate. Ninety six blood samples were collected from female buffaloes divided into three groups , the first group represented the control group and it included 16 clinically healthy animals , the second group included 40 animals suffered from acute TRP , finally the third group consisted of 40 animals represented chronic TRP. The results showed that TRP whether acute or chronic caused significant elevation in the activities of the following enzymes, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ,alanine aminotransferase (ALT) , lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) , creatine kinase (CK) , gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) when compared with control group. It was concluded that TRP in buffaloes causes changes in some biochemical parameters in the serum.
