|Abstract: ||Serum samples from 439 goats, 240 sheep, 194 cattle and 104 water buffaloes were tested for antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii by a latex agglutination test. Antibodies to T. gondii were found in 28.93% of goats, 18.75% of sheep, 1.03% of cattle and 3.85% of water buffaloes, at a dilution of ≥1 : 64. The highest titres observed in goats, sheep, cattle and water buffaloes were 1 : 2048, 1 : 2048, 1 : 64 and 1 : 512, respectively.|
