The present study was carried among the 18 clinical cases of dogs presented with mature cataract. They were randomly divided into three groups viz., Group A, Group B and Group C and were subjected for phacoemulsification followed by intra-ocular lens implantation of Rigid PMMA, Foldable hydrophilic acrylic and Foldable hydrophobic acrylic intra ocular lens respectively. Blood samples were collected at different intervals from all the groups in heparinised syringes as follows: preoperatively and 0, 1st, 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st and 30th day postoperatively. The samples were subjected for various hematological and biochemical analysis. Haemoglobin and total erythrocyte count in all the animals were within the normal range pre and postoperatively. There was an apparent increase in the TLC and neutrophil values during the 1st post-operative day. Lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils were within the normal physiological values. Alanine Amino Transferase, serum creatinine and blood glucose levels did not show any significant changes and were within the normal range in all the three groups. Either the minor surgical procedure or anesthetic protocol didn’t alter the haemato-biochemical parameters.
