DearDr(s) Amit Raj Gupta and Puneet Agrawal, this is an excellent pool of information about various anticoccidials and dosing schdule.

Based on the various findings and field reports, regular usage of any anticoccidial especially ionophores leads to stress and slowing down the growth rate.

As a terminal disinfectant NEOSPARK, IDIA provides a better soulution ZOACID-CP which destroys unsporulated and sporulated oocysts at surface level.

Generally coccidial oocysts are resistant to any kind of disinfectants, ZOACID-CP releases the active compound as a gaseous molecule at the surface level of oocysts which enables easy penetration and subsequent cidal action.

Various field observations revealed a reduction of 75-85[percent] of oocycts at first application and ZOACID-CP also acts as a terminal disinfectant against micro organisms.

Dear Mr Khalil,
Weve successfully managed flocks by feeding only ionophores particularly salinomycin, sacox. Weve done this experiment on flocks of 55000 broilers each consistently for 6 batches, may change type of ionophore used for next 2-3 flocks to shift back again on Sacox.

I am a doctor in Pakistan related to poultry feed and I mostly check poultry farms. I have been facing coccidiosis problem from 4 to 5 months in the field. There is mostly litter dry and climate in pakistan is mostly dry. But my poultry farmers face the coccidiosis problem in three or four times during 42 days of flock. This causes great economic losses to them. Mostly I use sulfaquinoxaline or toltrazuril salt in water and clopidol in feed to control and treat coccidiosis but sometimes coccidiosis attack is sever and no medicine works. I am working as technical advisor in poultry farms from last 7 years but didnot see so much coccidiosis in my 7 years. I am facing very difficulty even in hot environment and dry littler conditions to control coccidiosis.

Can you give me your valuable suggestions?

Thank you for complete article but there are some points about coocidiosis in breeder.
1)We encounter with coocidiosis in dry climate espececially in production period despite of Livacox vaccine .we cosider all management measurment such as litter management (to keep it dry)
2)The role of medicine for prevention of coocidiosis in breeders.
3)The effect of different medicine on production and hathability.

Very disappointed in your article. The authors need to update themselves in every category.
Sorry to say that there is no contribution whatsoever at the general knowledge of coccidiosis control.
