Abstract
Dermatophytes are considered one of the important zoonotic superficial fungal skin diseases in different animal species in the world especially among immunocompromised, stressed and senile individuals. The disease affects the animal productivity, leather industry (cattle), animal performance (Horses) and zoonotic importance (cats).our study focused on three main species cattle, horses and cats with skin lesions suspected to be ring worm to determine the different causes. Diagnosis was carried out using direct examination of skin scraping, isolation of the fungus using FungAssay and microscopic determination of fungal spores and microconidia. Different species of dermatophytes were isolated from calves including, Microsporumcanis and Microsporum gypsum, while in horses Trichophytonmentagrophytes and Microsporum gypsum were isolated and in cats Trichophytonmentagrophytes and Microsporumcanis were isolated. Mixed infection was reported in some cases. We could conclude that the isolated fungi are Microsporumcanis,Trichophytonmentagrophytes and Microsporum gypsum.

Key words: Dermatophytes, Microsporum, Trichophyton, Cattle, Horse, cats
