Serological survey was done on (100) serum samples of goats. (50) samples were collected from aborted goats and (50) serum from non-aborted goats from area around Baghdad to detect the prevalence of brucellosis and salmonellosis. The serological tests used in the study were the Rose Bengale Plate Test (RBPT) and tube agglutination test (TAT) for brucellosis and the widal plate test for salmonellosis. The prevalence of brucellosis using RBPT were (%) in aborted goats and (%) in non-aborted goats, while the prevalence by using TAT were (%) in aborted goats and (%) in non-aborted goats. The widal plate test gave good results in the diagnosis of salmonellosis in goats, the prevalence of salmonellosis in aborted goats was(%) and in non-aborted goats was(%). It was noticed that the percentage of mixed infection between brucellosis and salmonellosis was (%) in aborted goats and (%) in non-aborted goats and this due to presence of common and non-specific antigens between the two bacteria.
