In addition, peripheral blood smears were prepared and examined under microscope The rates obtained for seropositivety by IFA test in animais at pasture and vaccinated, at pasture and non-vaccinated, al haused and non-vaccinated were 46 15%. 31 48% and 12.19% respectively The rates obtained for piroplasm carrier by microscopical examination were 23.07%. 25,92% and 3.65% respectively.
