Bovine babesiosis and other tick borne diseases are considered responsible for more than 50% losses in the crossbred cattle. Carrier cattle infected with babesiosis are challenge to current diagnostic methods and are difficult to detect because of the low number of parasites in circulation. However, diagnosis of carrier animals in herd is important for preventing outbreaks by transmission through vector ticks to healthy animals and for obtaining epidemiological data of disease. Here, we report… CONTINUE READING
