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 wanes from 2 weeks of age and require exposure to the parasite to develop their own immunity. The animals need to get exposure to gain this immunity but not at levels that cause diesease. 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.
