Diagnosis of an ailment is soul of clinical practice and perhaps the biggest challenge as far as veterinary clinical practice is concerned. A long array of procedures, diagnostic test and methods are available for a clinician that can aid him to make his interpretation and make a promising opinion about any disease condition. Blood profiling remained one of the most valuable Diagnostic technique since times and in it Complete Blood Count/ Picture is very cardinal test that provide a glance about pathophysiological state of a subject in very quick convenient and economical way. Thus this review aims at understanding different parameters of Complete Blood Count (CBC) test in important farm and companion animals. It also give insights into modern technology that is making these tests more refined and easily accessible to patients as well as to clinicians.
