DAC Coccidiosemix – Why We Like It:
DAC Coccidiosemix is an easy to administer sulfonamide antibiotic used to treat coccidiosis in birds. Coccidiosemix is a water soluble powder that you add to your birds drinking water for five days for treatment of coccidiosis. We recommend repeating the course in 10 days to make sure any newly developed cocci protozoa are eliminated. Sulfonamide antibiotics are a good choice when amprolium and antiprotozoal medications have failed to remedy coccidiosis in your birds.
This product is labeled for pigeons and hobby birds, for species specific dose consult your veterinarian.
Coccidiosis is common in young birds and also can affect older birds when their immune system is compromised. Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. There are numerous strains of this protozoa and fast treatment is necessary for good outcomes.
Damage to the intestinal tract from coccidiosis can lead to compromised digestion and even death. Coccidiosis can reoccur due to exposure to a different strain than the precious infection or not properly medicating to cover the entire lifecycle of the organism. The most common treatment for coccidiosis is Amprolium, a coccidiostat, which is a thiamine uptake inhibitor. Cocci feeds on thiamine so this limits their food source, Amprolium, despite being the most used coccidiostat has only moderate efficacy.
When treating birds for coccidiosis we highly recommend not using a multivitamin with thiamine, especially if only using amprolium. Due to the moderate efficacy of amprolium we recommend using other treatment options such as this medication.
DAC Coccidiosemix is a highly effective treatment against coccidiosis in all its forms for racing pigeons.
Coccidiosis infected animals seem healthy but sometimes are listless, have a good physical condition and they are very vulnerable to more serious illnesses.
