Abstract:

Parasitic diseases have unfavorable affect on animal’s health and threaten profitable animal production. These infections also play a greater role in the spread of zoonotic diseases. Parasitic infections cause severe morbidity and mortality in animals especially those affecting the gastrointestinal system and thus affect the economy of livestock owner by decreasing the ability of the farmer. Due to all these reasons proper control of parasitic infection is critically important for sustained animal production. The most common method to control parasitic infection is chemotherapy, which is very effective but has several disadvantages like drug resistance and drug residues. Integrated approaches to control parasitic infections should be prepared including grazing management, biological control, genetic resistance of hosts, and parasitic vaccines. The most sustainable and economical approach to control parasitic infection in our country is to vaccinate animals, although vaccines increase the initial cost, but the immunity offered by the vaccine are long lived. Thus, vaccination of animals for various clinical, chronic, subclinical parasitic infections will be a cheaper and effective alternative to control parasitic infection for long time and improve animal production.
