E-mail: The study was conducted with the aim to mount a hematological and biochemical profile, establishing possible differences between sex and age, capuchin monkeys (Cebus spp) kept in captivity, clinically healthy. Hematological values were determined as well as biochemical tests to avaliate the liver profile (ALT, AST, ALP and GGT), renal profile (CREAT and urea), lipids profile (COL and TRIG), protein profile (ALB and TP), minerals (CA and P), apart from CK-Total and fructosamine. Blood samples were collected from 20 animals (10 males and 10 females) kept in the Zoo at the University of Passo Fundo. It was employed one statistical descriptive, obtaining the mean, standard deviation, and minimum and maximum values with 95% confidence. There was no significant difference in hematological and biochemical values for both sexes and age groups of capuchin monkeys. Therefore, these results corroborate with the present literature, increasing the quantity of information available to Wildlife clinical.
