A study was conducted to estimate the haematological alterations of gastrointestinal helminthic infection in horses of Anand district of Gujarat, India from March-2016 to February-2017. Based on qualitative faecal examination, a total number of 70 gastrointestinal helminths infected and 70 non-infected blood samples were collected during the clinicodiagnostic approach from horses for study of haematological parameters. The infected horses showed a significant reduction in the mean Hb (10.111±0.13 g/dl), TEC (6.504±0.10106/µl), PCV (30.064±0.42 %), lymphocyte (39.856±0.26 %), monocytes (2.892±0.06%) and significant increase in TLC (9.897±0.16 103/ µl), neutrophil (52.914±0.30%), eosinophil (4.033±0.09 %), basophil (0.302±0.01 %), MCH (15.618±0.13 pg) and MCHC (33.798±0.16 g/dl). The MCV level increased non-significantly in infected horses and recorded as 46.289±0.46 fl.
