Dycoxan conatains diclazuril (2.5mg/ml) for the prevention of symptoms and thrive reduction associated with coccidiosis.
In lambs: Prevention of clinical signs of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria crandallis and Eimeria ovinoidalis sensitive to diclazuril.
In Calves: Prevention of clinical signs of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernil sensitive to diclazuril.
What is Coccidiosis?
Coccidia are single celled protozoal organisms of the genus Eimeria. They have a complex life cycle involving
both asexual and sexual reproduction. Disease due to damage to the intestinal mucosa can present in a
variety of ways depending on factors including the age of the animal, its immune status and the level of
challenge. Although a dozen or more species of coccidia are known to infect cattle, only three, E. bovis, E.
zuernii and E. alabamensis, are thought to be clinically significant.
Signs of infection:
The classic signs of coccidiosis include diarrhoea, possibly containing blood, and
tenesmus (unproductive straining). However, chronic and subclinical forms of the
disease are likely to be more common with high levels of challenge and a
“reinfection syndrome” being significant. In such cases, clinical signs are
frequently non-specific with calves presenting as ‘poor doers’ with a stary coat,
pasty faeces, reduced appetite and poor growth rate.
Dycoxan is a preventative measure for use in herds and flocks that have a history of coccidosis. If there is no recent and confirmed history of clinical coccidiosis, the presence of coccidia in the flock or herd should be confirmed by faecal sampling prior to treatment
1 mg diclazuril per kg body weight (i.e 1 ml of the oral suspension per 2.5 kg body weight), in a single oral administration for both lambs and calves.
