This study was carried out to investigate the blood hematology and biochemistry profiles of Peranakan Etawah Goats fed with grass silage and concentrate rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). Twelve one year Peranakan Etawah male goats were divided in to two group: P0 (basal feed) and P1 (basal feed+ 0.5% PUFA from corn oil). After 8 weeks, blood samples were collected to analyze hematology and biochemistry profile. The result showed that erythrocyte, calcium and phosphorus significantly increased in P1 while MCH decreased. It was concluded that concentrate feed rich in PUFA could increase hematology profile to support health status of Peranakan Etawa goats by acting as a strong antioxidant and esterogen precusor to transport calcium in the blood

Key Words: blood biochemistry, PUFA, concentrate, goat, hematology
