The comprehension of the pathophysiological aspects concerning wild animals' diseases contributes favourably to the improvement of captive rearing of these animals, and also to the elaboration of conservation action plans for free-ranging animals. This study is part of a major project aiming to evaluate the pathogenicity of Haemonchus contortus in gray-brocket deer, considering the fact that this trichostrongilid nematode is a major concern for sheep production and that there are reposrts of its occurrence in wild animals. For that, acute-phase proteins and seric proteinogram of adult gray-brocket deer experimentally infected by H. contortus will be evaluated in pre- and post- infection moments.
