Abstract

A nine-week-old female Doberman Pinscher pup was presented with paraplegia and progressive pelvic limb hyper-extension. The pup had a 1:800 serum antibody titre to Neospora caninum by indirect fluorescent antibody test. Diagnosis was based on clinical signs and serologic examination. The dog died after 18 days therapy with sulphadiazine-trimethoprim (15mg/kg po bid), clindamycin (10mg/kg im bid) and pyrimethamine (1mg/kg po bid).
