Serum samples from 107 goats, 40 sheep, 50 cows were tested for Toxoplasma gondii antibody by indirect haemagglutination test (IHA) in dilutions of 1:10, 1:54, 1:162 and 1:486. Toxoplasma gondii-antibodies were found in 21 (19.6%), 10 (25%), 26 (52%), goat, sheep and cow sera respectively. No serum sample showed a titre higher than 1:162. All animals were kept in good hygienic condition. These results indicate that Toxoplasma gondii antibodies are widespread in animal populations which supports that toxoplasmosis is a widely spread zoonotic infection in this country.
