Sheep diseases, Coccidiosis.
First Page Number
Last Page Number
COCCIDIOSIS is an acute, contagious intestinal infection which may affect most species of animals and birds. The disease causes heavy losses in the poultry industry, and dogs, calves, sheep, goats and pigs are among other domesticated animals affected—but there is no cross-infection from one species of animal or bird to another. It is characterised by diarrhoea and severe loss of condition.
