Haemoprotozoan infections are the primary stumbling blocks to cattle development. By altering animal growth and output, it causes catastrophic losses. Five parasite infections were among the top ten cattle diseases recorded, including fascioliasis, coccidiosis, trypanosomosis, babesiosis, and theileriosis. Bovine babesiosis and theileriosis, which spread by ticks, are considered economically significant. Clinical signs and microscopic inspection of thin blood smears are used to make the diagnosis in acute cases. Hence, an attempt was made in the present study to find prevalence of tick borne haemoprotozoan diseases in suspected dairy animals in Western Maharashtra, District Ahmednagar. In the present study, 1854 blood samples were collected from 161 villages and screened using Giemsa and Field staining from September 2018 to June 2021. Among the Theileria sp, the highest occurrence i.e., 66.16% (1017) was recorded. It will be helpful in biological vector control, early diagnosis and proper treatment, which may reduce mortality and losse.
