Abstract
200 serum samples were collected from apparently healthy goats of different age and sex from Anand, Navsari and Valsad districts of Gujarat (India), were screened for mycoplasmal antibodies by slide agglutination test using colored antigen of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri. Out of 200 serum samples screened 85 were found to be positive indicating overall seroprevalence of 42.50 percent. The higher prevalence was observed in Navsari district (66.66 %) followed by Valsad (60.66%) and Anand district (32.85 %). The higher incidence in these district could be suggest the endemicity of the disease. Slide agglutination test for mycoplasmal antibodies detection using colored antigen of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri. antigen was found to be quick, simple, low cost with ease of application in the field without the need of any specialized training and equipments.

Key words: Seroprevalence, Goat, Gujarat, Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri
