    Since the introduction of AI, venereal diseases caused by Tritrichomonas fetus and Campylobacter fetus subsp. venerealis haved been eradicated in The Netherlands. Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus can cause sporadic abortion and early embryonic death. When natural breeding is practised, venereal diseases must be included in the list of differential diagnoses of fertility problems. A case study of a Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus infection is described.
