This involves using a coccidiostats such as amprolium, decoquinate
Monensin, which is extensively used in the poultry industry to prevent Eimeria coccidiosis, exhibits antiparasitic and antibacterial properties as a result of its ability to transport metal cations through cellular membranes, and decoquinate is a coccidiostat that disrupts electron transport in the mitochondrial cytochrome system of Eimeria parasites (EFSA, 2003; Martel et al.
Two drug treatment regimens were used, decoquinate as Deccox[R] (DECX) (27 g/ton) or monensin as Coban[R] (COBN) (100 g/ton), each with bacitracin methylene disalicylate (50 g/ton) and roxarsone (45 g/ton), between 0 and 35 d post-hatch.
To determine whether chemotherapeutic compounds available for use in domestic poultry are effective at controlling coccidiosis in northern bobwhites (Colinus virginianus), we tested 13 chemotherapeutic anticoccidials including amprolium (250 parts per million [ppm]), clopidol (125 ppm), diclazuril (1 ppm and 2 ppm), decoquinate
(30 ppm), lasalocid (120 ppm), monensin (90 ppm), narasin/nicarbazin (36/36 ppm), robenidine (33 ppm), roxarsone (50 ppm), sulfadimethoxine/ormetoprin (125/75 ppm), salinomycin (60 ppm), semduramicin (25 ppm), and zoalene (125 ppm and 150 ppm).
11 substances are concerned: Lasalocid sodium, Narasin, Salinomycin sodium, Monensin sodium, Semduramicin, Maduramicin, Robenidine, Decoquinate
, Halofuginone, Nicarbazin, and Diclazuril.
The medication is Decoquinate
(C&D), which helps to prevent coccidiosis in kids.
