This work is conducted on rams(n=15), bulls(n=15), and stallions(n=15) which are divided randomly into three main groups and each group is divided randomly into three sub groups. Moringa oleifera seeds ethanol extract collect and dilute into 25mg extract/ml., 50mg extract/ml. concentrations. After blood collection 5ml. from each animal diluent 25 mg extract/ml. were added directly to rams R1, bulls B1, and stallions S1, diluent 50 mg extract/ml. were added directly to R2, B2, and S2 and R3, B3, and S3 were regarded as control group. Coagulation parameters fibrinogen concentrations, platelet counts, prothrombin time(PT), and activated partial thromboplastin time(aPTT) were measured. The results show that there are coagulant parameters differences between these field animals. There is significant increase of fibrinogen concentrations, platelet counts, and PT whereas there is significant decrease of aPTT of rams, bulls, stallions.
