Ectoparasitic infestations causing hemoprotozoan diseases are one of the major constraints for optimum productivity from farm animals and profitable dairy industry, especially in tropic and subtropics. Early diagnosis and proper therapeutic management can restrict the extent of production loss but field-level diagnosis relies upon clinical symptoms and blood smear examination. Advanced techniques requires well equipped laboratory which is necessary for reliable diagnosis, hence an alternate diagnostic tool like biomarker discovery through Disease specific proteomic and metabolomics fingerprinting along with elucidation of disease-related pathway and molecular interaction profile can assist to develop sensitive point-of-care tests for rapid, reliable, non-invasive and early diagnosis of subclinical hemoprotozoan diseases of farm animals.
