All the quails captured from these 10 districts were killed by decapitation. Blood film prepared for detection of blood cells abnormalities. After that slide smears for helminthes and protozoan parasites were made from rectal and cecal region of intestine, then both were fixed. The remaining sample of intestine was then proceeded for separation of Salmonella Specie with the help of selenite broth. Total six helminthes and three protozoan parasites were collected from examined quails. The examined helminthes in current study are Raillietina echinobothrida, Choanotaenia infundibulum, Subulura brumpti, Heterakis gallinarum, Raillietina cesticillus and Raillietina tetragona, while the three diseases observed on Quails of KPK are coccidiosis, histomoniasis and cryptosporidiosis, for these three diseases, protozoan parasites were responsible which are recovered from the Quails in the current research work.
