The aim of this study was to determine seroprevalence of Neospora caninum in dairy cattle ranches with higher abortion rates and co-existence of Neospora caninum, Toxoplasma gondii, Brucella abortus, and Listeria monocytogenes antibodies. The blood samples were collected from dairy cows with history of abortion (n=234) as well as from pregnant cows that were (n=323) kept in the same ranches. N. caninum seroprevalence was 10.77% (60/557). The co-existence rate of N. caninum seropositivity with T… CONTINUE READING
