Livestock veterinary entomology is the evaluation and understanding of ectoparasites that bite and feed on livestock and companion animals, thus affecting the animals' thriftiness, behavior, and lifestyle. Insects are a major cause of mortality and reduced productivity in domestic livestock. The insects cause this damage directly by feeding on or parasitizing livestock, or indirectly, by transmitting livestock diseases.
