Male albino rate of average body weight 110-120 gm were used in the experiment. Control group of rates were maintained at room temperature(27Degree-28degree C) and the experimental groups were exposed to high ambient temperatures (40Degree,42degree and 44 degree C) for different durations of time. Na+,K+, and Cl-concentrations in serum and the packed cell volume (PCV) percentage was determined in each case. It was found that the concentration of serum Na+ and Cl-in creased markedly with high ambient temperature and increased duration of exposure. Serum K+ concentration increased slightly and the PCV percentage showed marked increase in the heat treated groups.
