Equine Piroplasmosis (EP), caused by the intraerythrocytic parasites Babesia caballi and/or Theileria equi, is the main restriction for the international movement of equids from endemic countries, such as Spain, to countries free from EP, which involves huge economic losses for the equine sector. Up to present, there are no studies regarding the impact of EP on the exportation of horses from Spain; the aim of this study was to obtain the first EP seroprevalence data in horse samples received from different areas of the country for their informative analysis prior to exportation.
