Equine piroplasmosis (EP) is an infectious disease of equids caused by the intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites Babesia caballi (B. caballi) and Theileria equi (T. equi). The importance of this disease is the fact that, after the infection, horses can remain as chronic carriers of the parasites for a long time, being seropositive but showing clinical signs only in cases of immunosuppression or intense exercise. EP involves serious economic losses for the equine industry due to the restrictions in the export of horses to countries free from EP
