  1. Stress Leukogram
    Lymphopenia, eosinopenia, monocytosis, neutrophilia

    NEMN Low lymphocytes and eosinophils, more monocytes and neutrophils
  2. Inflammatory leukogram
    Neutrophilia (mild, moderate, or marked), left shift (increased number of bands, depending on severity of inflammation), variable lymphocytes, monocytes, and eosinophils.
  3. What causes a stress leukogram?
    Increased exogenous or endogenous corticosteroids
  4. Inflammatory leukogram+ stress leukogram is commonly seen in ______.
  5. Inflammatory leukogram + stress leukogram
    Neutrophilia with or without a left shift, monocytosis, lymphopenia, and eosinopenia
  6. Epinephrine response is caused by _______.
    Excitement, NOT stress
  7. Epinephrine response
    Lymphocytosis (transient, especially in cats), neutrophilia (sometimes), splenic contraction may cause an increase in PCV
  8. Endotoxic shock is ________, and is signaled by ________.
    Dose dependent; neutropenia
  9. Acute or moderately acute external blood loss
    Decrease in total protein, regenerative anemia (in 3-5 days)
  10. Chronic external blood loss
    Decrease in total protein, microcytic and hypo chromic RBCs, and regenerative anemia
  11. Internal blood loss
    Normal total protein, macrocytic and hypochromic RBCs, regenerative anemia (in 3-5 days)
  12. Hemolysis (intra- or extra-vascular)
    Normal to mildly increased total protein, regenerative anemia, hemoglobinemia/ hemoglobinuria (only with intravascular hemolysis), leukocytosis (variable)
