Haematological data from clinically ill western quolls was retrospectively analysed. A lymphocytosis was the most commonly encountered haematological abnormality, observed in 17/23 animals. In contrast, a neutrophilia was uncommon, present in only 1/23 cases. Two animals exhibited a polycythaemia, four animals exhibited a mild anaemia and one animal a severe anaemia. The last exhibited a marked regenerative response with 12% polychromatophilic erythrocytes.
