A case of an adult dog with multifocal, progressive neurological signs caused by Neospora caninum is reported. Pathological studies showed cerebellar lesions due to the parasite, which was also present in other parts of the nervous system and muscle. Cerebellar atrophy related to Neospora infection has been rarely reported in veterinary medicine, and has been shown to affect ruminants and dogs. The cerebellar involvement and the age of the present dog make this case uncommon.
