A total of 49 cattle were included in the study for epidemiological study, laboratory examination and statistical analysis. The epidemiological survey of this study was carried out using preset questionnaires, for laboratory examination peripheral blood smears from ear vein were prepared from suspected cattle (2 smears per cattle).

Host risk factors such as types of animal, breed, age, nutritional status and environmental risk factors such as seasons, presence of ectoparasites were investigated for the possible association with frequency of blood parasitic diseases, of the risk factors investigated; nutritional status was very nearly significant.
