What is Neosporosis?

Neosporosis is a parasitic disease that can cause spontaneous abortions or abnormal births in beef and dairy cattle.

What is the mode of transmission of Neospora caninum?

The causative agent of the disease – a coccidian parasite known as Neospora caninum – is transmitted, in part, by dogs and was first identified in 1988. Until that time, Neospora caninum infections had been attributed to Toxoplasma gondii due to biological and structural similarities between the organisms.
