N. caninum is a parasitic protozoan that causes neosporosis in dogs and cattle. It is one of the causes of miscarriage or stillbirth. Neosporosis is not transmitted by direct contact, but by feeding food or water contaminated with animal feces containing its eggs (Oocyst; Neospora caninum). Neosporosis can get infected via vertical transmission, where the infected mother cow transfers its diseases to its offspring. No vaccine or treatment is currently available. It must be controlled by taking preventative measures and conducting diagnostic tests.
