Samples of three healthy Panthera onca from a Northeast Argentina reserve were analyzed through spectrophotometry, electrophoresis, densitometry, and microscopy in order to obtain hematological and biochemical reference values. Means and standard deviation for hematocrit, hemoglobin, red and white blood cells, leukocyte differential count, total protein, albumin, globulins, glucose, total cholesterol, lipoproteins, calcium, inorganic phosphorus, urea, creatinine and some enzymatic activities, were obtained. Usefulness of studied parameters to evaluate sanitary and nutritional state on captive P. onca, is emphasized.
