Brucellosis is a zoonosis which causes severe disease in humans and important economic losses in livestock operations. In Ecuador, the only Brucella species reported (in humans and domestic animals) has been B. abortus. We used two PCR protocols to investigate the presence of B. melitensis and B. suis infection in goats. We also report the first isolation and PCR detection of B. canis in dogs in Ecuador.
