Abstract

The Visayan warty pig is one of the endemic species of the Philippines that have been listed as "critically endangered." Conservation actions and efforts, such as health assessments, are being carried out to preserve the population. However, there is limited information about the normal hematological and biochemical profile of the species. The study presents reference intervals essential for analyzing these profiles for the juvenile Visayan warty pig. It may aid in the practice of veterinary
medicine and serve as a basis for interpreting juvenile Visayan warty pig blood measurements in other veterinary clinics. Moreover, this study can provide more information on the species, aid in related future studies, and potentially inform conservation efforts.
