Dr. Justin, congratulations for this article about coccidiosis in poultry, although it has a commercial aspect but still it is informative and you have a nice way of elaborating .

this is a very good article about coccidiosis in poultry, although, it is more or less of a commercial contains useful intellectual materials,but the basic problem about the product is that it is designed for smallholders and not for intensive poultry is as well very expensive.i am hoping to make it available in nigeria,but the only obtacle is the is available in liquid and advice to people is to buy the liquid form as this can be added to poultry drinking water.this will not give room for any wastage,and the answer will good prompt effectiveness.

i think Coccidiosis is one of the most important poultry disease. because sometimes we cant see it in the farm but it exist. we should use anticoccidial or some else again to prevent.
