Abstract : A rapid technique for obtaining multiple serial bone marrow aspiration samples from ribs of dogs for differential and total marrow cell counts is described. Statistical analyses of data presented in a myelogram from 216 rib marrow aspirates from 27 adult male beagles indicated no significant difference in the cellular composition of marrow from several ribs sampled by this procedure.
