Parasitic diseases constitute a major group of chronic infectious diseases in livestock and jeopardize animal health results in poor production. However, treatment and control of diseases are largely dependent on timely diagnosis. Usually, the diagnosis of parasitic infections relies on testing for the presence of parasites through direct faecal examination, blood smear, lymph node biopsy etc, but clinically, it is often difficult to elucidate the entire offending organism. Accurate diagnoses of parasitic infections are always a prerequisite for successful treatment and control of animal diseases. Besides, the rapid development of drug resistance against anti-parasitic drugs urges the need for the development of the alternative, early diagnostic techniques. In modern years, research has been focused towards alternative methods to improve the diagnosis of parasitic diseases. In this paper, we reviewed the application of various diagnostic techniques for the detection of parasitic infections currently in use and future developments.
