Investigations were carried out to determine whether goats and sheep were involved in the endemic cycle of foot-and-mouth disease in Northern Thailand. Evidence was obtained from serological surveys and an outbreak investigation. Serological data on surveyed flock was obtained from the virus neutralization test and the virus infection associated antigen agar gel diffusion test. It appeared that infection with all 3 endemic serotypes of foot-and-mouth disease virus occurred in goats and sheep, although in some cases the infection was subclinical.
