Coccidiosis

Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. The disease spreads from one animal to another by contact with infected faeces or ingestion of infected tissue. Diarrhoea, which may become bloody in severe cases, is the primary symptom. Most animals infected with coccidia are asymptomatic, but young or immunocompromised animals may suffer severe symptoms and death.
Coccidiosis in intensively housed animals is generally prevented by adding a coccidiostat such as Monotec 100 microGranulate to the feed.  It is important each animal receives an adequate dose, as animals not consuming sufficient treated feed may not be protected.  Contact your vet for advice if animals appear clinically infected.
