Abstract :

Parasites can cause infection in both humans and animals. Common parasitic diseases in animals are Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Theileriosis, and Trypanosomiasis. Theileria is commonly transmitted by Ixodes ticks and can be diagnosed by Giemsa stained smear and Indirect Fluorescent Antibody Test. Anaplasma is transmitted by different species of ticks including Dermacentor, Rhipicephalus, Boophilus, Ixodes, and Hyalomma. It can be diagnosed mainly by inoculating the suspected animals' blood in a splenectomized calf and examining the calf's blood after a few weeks. Babesia is mainly transmitted by Rhipicephalus, Boophilus, and Haemaphysalis. This disease is diagnosed by various methods like Giemsa stained blood smear, ELISA, and inoculating suspected blood in splenectomized calves.
