Abstract. To clarify whether red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) can be final hosts of Neospora caninum, foxes and dogs were fed in parallel on tissues of a sheep and a goat experimentally infected with N. caninum. The faeces of at least two of five dogs contained N. caninum oocysts, as determined by bioassay. In the faeces of all six foxes fed in parallel, oocysts were detected that were larger in size (length 12.6±0.5 µm, width 11.8±0.4 µm) than the oocysts shed by the dogs. Ribosomal RNA sequences and… CONTINUE READING
