Coccidiosis is caused by a parasite that multiplies in the intestinal wall causing significant damage and economic losses. Lambs and calves are particularly susceptible as maternal immunity wanes from 4-6 weeks before they develop their own immunity. Obvious signs of disease (diarrhoea) often do not appear until there is significant gut damage – and much of the economic loss has already been incurred.4
Vecoxan allows animals to develop natural immunity, providing long term protection1,2 and helping farmers to maximise profitability.
