The present study was conducted to find out the ectoparasite infesting domestic animals i.e goat, cow, sheep and buffalo in district Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan during the period from January 2018 to March 2018.In present work total 120 animals were studied out of which 45 were infected with different parasites.  During present study 13 species of ectoparasite were identified, out of which 9 were ticks such as Haemaphysalis bispinosa, Boophilus microplus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Rhipicephalus annulatus and Hyalomma marginatum, Hylomma aegyptium and  Dermacenter adenernsoni, Hyalomma anatolicum, Hyalomma Ixodes excavatum and 4 were lice such as Damalinia caprae and Linognathus stenopsis Linognathus pedalis  and Damalinia ovis.From the current result it can be concluded that ectoparasite infesting domestic animals because they not only the cause of diseases in animals but also adverse  effect on their growth and productivity.
