Endocox Powder – Why We Like It:
Endocox Powder is generic Baycox. This water soluble powder will make 20 gallons of solution to treat coccidiosis in pigeons, cage and pet birds, making it a cost effective treatment option. The active ingredient in Endocox is toltrazuril, which is highly effective in combating coccidiosis infections in birds.
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.
