Coccidiosis
                 Infection with Eimeria (a type of Coccidial or gastrointestinal parasite related to Giardia) is one of the most economically important diseases of sheep. Historically, some Eimeria spp were thought to be infectious and transmissible between sheep and goats, but the parasites are now considered host-specific. Lambs and calves from 1-6 months old are most commonly infected and affected.  Older animals are often unaffected carriers and may serve as a source of infection for the young.

Clinical Signs may include bloody, mucusy diarrhea, fever, dehydration, inappetence, weight loss, anemia, and death.  Fly strike and secondary bacterial infections may accompany coccidiosis. Coccidiosis may be diagnosed through clinical signs and/or a fecal examination.

Treatment:  There are a number of sulfa based drugs that may be effective in treating a coccidial infection.  Please contact your veterinarian for more information.
