    Int J Parasitol 31:209-15. 2001
    ..Aborting animals were mainly part of the high seroprevalence age-group. These findings strongly indicate a post-natal infection of the animals in the high seroprevalence age-groups, probably due to a point source exposure to N. caninum...

    ..caninum infected placenta. The identity of the oocysts was confirmed by a bioassay in gerbils. It is concluded that ingestion of bovine placenta by dogs is an effective mode of transmission of N. caninum from cattle to dogs...

    Th Dijkstra
    Animal Health Service, P O Box 9, 7400 AJ Deventer, The Netherlands
    Vet Parasitol 105:99-104. 2002
    ..This study supports the hypothesis that farm dogs may become infected by foetal fluids or placental material of infected cattle, and may subsequently cause a post-natal infection of cattle in the herd by shedding oocysts...
