Neospora caninum in an adult dog with progressive cerebellar signs

, : Neospora caninum in an adult dog with progressive cerebellar signs. Progress in Veterinary Neurology 6(4): 124-127

Neospora caninum was identified as the cause of a chronic encephalitis with profound atrophy of the cerebellum in an adult dog. Signs of cerebellar ataxia started at 14 months of age, and slowly progressed for nearly 2 years before progressing more rapidly. Euthanasia was performed when the dog was 3.5 years of age. Antibodies for N. caninum were present in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The dam and one littermate had no such serum antibodies. A second littermate developed ataxia at 4 years of age, had significant antibody titers for Toxoplasma gondii and N. caninum, was treated, and recovered.

Bisphosphonates induce osteoclast apoptosis, thereby decreasing bone resorption and reducing the rate of bone remodeling. Earlier work from our group and others has demonstrated that, additionally, bisphosphonates prevent osteoblast and osteocyte...
