Abstract: This study examined hematology and serum chemistry status of adult American minks (Mustla vison), living in the Changli fur farms of Hebei province, Eastern China to provide important baseline data for clinical diagnosis and breeding in the corresponding animal species. The 41 values were compared between males (n = 10) and female (n = 10) minks. The results showed that gender influenced (p<0.05) serum biochemistry values. Male minks had higher (p<0.05) Creatin Kinase (CK) and Alanine aminotrotransferase (ALT) and lower (p<0.05) Amylase (AM) than females. However, the hematology values were not different by genders.
