The prevalence of haemoprotozoan disease in crossbred cattle was studied by screening 132 clinically suspected blood samples by Geimsa’s stained blood smear method. Among 132 crossbred cattle screened, 57 animals were found positive for haemoprotozoan parasites. Out of 57 positive cases, 41 were found positive for Theileria annulata and the remaining 16 were positive for Babesia bibemina. The highest prevalence was found in 4-6 year age group and in monsoon months. The hematological observation revealed reduced Hb, TEC and PCV in the infected animals. The treatment with buparvaquone and oxytetracyclin for theileriosis and diminazine aceturate for babesiosis are found effective.
