Coccidia is a common, and sometimes deadly, parasite that infects the intestines of birds causing Coccidiosis.
Coccivet is a dual active, Coccidiosis treatment for use in pigeons and ornamental birds. With a dual active formulation Coccivet safely and efficiently clears infection over a 7-day course of treatment.
Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of birds caused by a protoan parasite known as Coccidia. Protozoa are transmitted through the faeces, where they can remain dormant in the environment for up to 12 months. During hot, damp conditions the protozoa become active and infect birds when ingested. Coccidiosis can result in nutrient malabsorption, dehydration, and blood loss, and make the bird susceptible to secondary infections.
Coccivet has much better activity against parasites than sulphur treatments and may be prepared as a flock dose for large numbers of birds or singular and small aviary dose.
When treating for coccidiosis it is important to thoroughly clean all aviaries and environments, using a disinfectant such as Vetafarm Avicare, at the same time to help prevent reinfection.
