    Hi everyone, I am a Vet student from Republic of Moldova, and i have such a question. ..... Do you have to remember all biochemical parameters in your faculty in your country, because in our country we have to know by hard all parameters in all species, (for ex. what is the normal glucose lvl in blood of elephant ?) We don't have elephant's or snakes or any other exotic animals, in our country, all we have is dogs, cats cows, goats, chickens....and that's almost all animals with what we are working. So we try to explain to our teachers, that we don't have to know so hard all parameters in every species..... I just want to know your opinion. Thank you in advance!!!

    While of course it's helpful to have a rough idea for the most commonly seen species, as far as I'm aware it's not a requirement to remember them, no. That just seems like a pointless exercise in rote learning to me :dontknow: Most of the time the machines/labs that run blood work will include reference values on the results page anyway, and will make any values outside of these boundaries bold so that they're seen easily.
