Adult working dog has to do a lot of intense physical training every day. The blood physiology and hemorheological indexes were measured in three adult working dogs (Kunming, German shepherd, Belgian malinois) and one indigenous breed in Kunming. The results showed that the number of red blood cells and hemoglobin concentration in working dogs were significantly higher than those of the indigenous breed ( P0.05). In addition, red blood cell deformability of working dogs decreased. The result suggested that these working dogs owed bad blood stream. The way to overcome the high blood flow resistance remains to be resolved.
