AbstractThis study was aimed to verify the presence of Toxoplasma gondii antibodies in equine sera in Mosul city, Iraq. Seventy nine samples of sera were examined (70 female and 9 male) by latex agglutination test (LAT) and 2–Mercaptoethanol test (2-ME). Results showed that anti-bodies to T. gondii using LAT were detected in 72.2% (71.4% female and 77.8% male) whereas 57% (57.1% female and 55.6% male) of infected horses were detected by 2-ME.
