Abstract

Giardiasis infection main causative agent of humans, companion animals, livestock and wild life is G.
lamblia. Thus, a total of 300 fecal samples of cattle, sheep, goats suffered from diarrhea in slaughtering house
in AL-Diwanyha province were collected. The multiplex PCR technique applied for G. lamblia detection
as well as genotyping. The research findings revealed that 154 positive cases, their prevalence percentage
were 35, 35 and 30 respectively. Giardia lamblia E, A, B and AB assemblages genotypes showed significant
differences, indicating a potential for zoonotic spread under definite situations where humans living in close
contact with livestock, therefore, More awareness urgently needed to eliminate these infections.
