Abstract: Bovine babesiosis caused by different species of intraerythrocytic Babesia mainly Babesia bigemina and Babesia bovis. Babesiosis is mainly transmitted by ticks, however, transuterine/ transplacental transmission can not be ignored. In the present study both mother and its 42-day- old calf were infected with babesiosis. Since simultaneous infection of babesiosis in mother and its young calf has not been reported so far, hence it is placed on the record. Due to good body condition score and young age of the calf, after the treatment, very next day coffee colored urine became clear which is indicating, timely treatment of babesiosis in young calves is highly effective.
