COCCIDIOSIS

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.

The impact of coccidiosis in lambs:

  • Increased lamb mortality.
  • Survivors can show reduced weight gain3.
  • Reduced weight gain can mean longer rearing periods, increasing feed costs3.
  • Can trigger other diseases, increasing labour treatment costs3.

The impact of coccidiosis in calves:

  • Reduced growth rates4.
  • Increased feed costs.
  • Calves becoming more susceptible to other diseases such as pneumonia5.
  • In extreme cases, death5.
