Abstract

The neutrophils of the canine peripheral blood were observed through electron microscopy. The results thus obtained were summarized as follows. 1) The fine structures of the canine neutrophils were fundamentally identical with those of humans and other animals reported already. 2) Slight or moderate maculous appearances on the nuclear lobes were observed in the nuclei. 3) The specific granules of the cells were classified into three types, such as compact homogeneous ones with high electron density, moderately dense ones with granular or lattice-like structures, and low dense or almost vacant ones.
