Stavropol Krai,where sheep-breeding is developed, in particular in its Eastern area(Apanasenkovskom, Arzgirskogo, levokumskiy, Neftekumsk, Turkmen districts), isan endemic region for iodine. The study of blood composition is one of the mostimportant indicators that characterize the physiological state of animals andtheir adaptive capacity, especially in endemic areas. The aim of the study wasto study the morphological and functional parameters of blood of sheep duringpregnancy and after childbirth in the Eastern (iodine deficiency) zone of theStavropol territory. Research was carried out in 2016–2018 in sheep farmslocated in the Eastern zone of the Stavropol territory and in the Scientific-diagnosticand Medical-veterinary Center  of StavropolState Agrarian University. For research, the object was the blood of clinicallyhealthy sheep of the Stavropol breed, taken before insemination, on the 90thand 135th days of pregnancy and in the postpartum period. As a result ofresearches it is established that at sheep of Stavropol breed in the conditionsof an endemic zone of Stavropol Krai on iodine the highest values of quantityof erythrocytes and leukocytes are noted during pregnancy on the 90th day thattestifies to activation of hemo- and leukopoiesis. Hemoglobin levels werehigher in late pregnancy (135th day), and hematocrit number was higher in sheepbefore insemination and in the future it tends to decrease. The studiedmorphofunctional blood parameters in sheep after childbirth were the lowestcompared to the blood levels of sheep before insemination and during pregnancy.
