In the flocks of broiler sampled in this study, coccidiostat was supplemented in the feed and applied during almost the whole life of chicken.
Nicarbazin is a coccidiostat used to treat the protozoan disease, coccidiosis, that can be debilitating or even fatal to poultry.
It was established to be used, as coccidiostat at concerntration of 1.5 ppm and coccidiocidal at 3 ppm in poultry rations [10].
The rabbits were occasionally dewormed and given coccidiostat. They were treated as and when necessary.

There was also routine administration of antibiotics, vitamins and coccidiostat (Amprolium) in the drinking water.
