    A serological survey for antibodies against Neospora caninum in aborting cattle was carried out in the Czech Republic. Serum samples from 463 aborting dairy cows originated from 137 farms from different parts of the Czech Republic were tested for presence of N. caninum antibodies by use of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and an indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT). Antibodies (1:640) to N. caninum were found in 18 (3.9%) of 463 aborting cows. Farm prevalence in aborting cows was 12.4% (17/137). This first report on the serological prevalence of N. caninum in cows in the Czech Republic verified a strong association between N. caninum infection and abortions in five dairy farms. Thus, the neosporosis should be considered in differential diagnosis of bovine abortion.
