parasite Neospora caninum (Apicomplexa: Sarcocystidae) is a major abortifacient agent in ruminants, especially cattle.
(apicomplexa) parasite infecting Strombus gigas Linne, 1758 digestive gland.
Time of day, age and feeding habits influence coccidian
oocyst shedding in wild passerines.
Salinomycin is widely used to control infection with coccidian
in poultry feed.
Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian
parasitic infections in rural community in and around Loni, Maharashtra.
The parasites were Capillaria sp., Baylisascaris devosi, Echinochasmus sp., and two Coccidian
The nine dogs with a single coccidian
infection were discarded in the data analysis.
The single parasitic infestations consists of Strongyle 87.7, 70.6 and 67.6 percent and for coccidian
5.5, 2.2, 2 percent at Farm I, II and III, respectively.
Roxarsone is an organoarsenic compound that is widely used in poultry production as a feed additive to increase weight-gain and improve feed efficiency and as a coccidiostat which is a substance administered to poultry in order to impede the growth as well as reproduction of coccidian
parasites.14 A recent study showed the connection of the use of roxarsone along with other arsenical feed additives to augmented levels of inorganic arsenic in chicken breast meat.14 These arsenical compounds are added in the feed to provide nitrogen to the poultry as a mean of building proteins and muscle mass in them.
