Coccidia is a natural herbal remedy that helps your pet overcome coccidosis, also known as coccidia or cocci. This natural Coccidia treatment is useful for dogs, cats, birds, goat kids, guinea pigs, and other animals. We have numerous customers who tried numerous rounds of treatment with the traditional Albon or Flagyl, some with pets so severe they were on vet IV's. As soon as they stopped the Albon or Flagyl treatment, the diarrhea would return. These customers have had excellent success using the Coccidia remedy. The severe coccidia cases need Parvaid (for dogs and other animals, EXCEPT cats) or the Feline Distemper remedy for cats. More info is below.

What is Coccidiosis?"

Coccidia are small protozoans that multiply in the intestinal tracts of dogs and cats, most commonly in kittens and puppies less than 6 months of age, in adult animals whose immune system is suppressed or in animals who are stressed in other ways (i.e., change in ownership, other disease present). In cats and dogs, most coccidia are of the genus called Isospora. Isospora canis and I. ohioensis are the species most often encountered in dogs; I. felis and I. rivolta are the most common in cats. Regardless of which species is present we generally refer to the disease as coccidiosis. As a puppy or kitten ages it tends to develop a natural immunity to the effects of coccidia. As an adult it may carry coccidia in its intestines, shed the cysts in the feces, but experience no ill effects.

How are coccidia transmitted? A puppy or kitten is born with the coccidia organisms in its intestine. However, once born, the puppy or kitten is frequently exposed to its mother's feces and if the mother is shedding the infective cysts in her feces then the young animals will likely ingest them and coccidia will develop in their intestines. Since young puppies and kittens, usually those less than six months of age, have no immunity to coccidia, the organisms reproduce in large numbers and parasitize the young animal's intestines. Oftentimes, this has severe effects. From exposure to the coccidia in feces to the onset of the illness is about 13 days. Most puppies and kittens who are ill from coccidia are, therefore, two weeks of age and older. Although most infections are the result of spread from the mother, this is not always the case. Any infected puppy or kitten is contagious to other puppies or kittens. In breeding facilities, shelters, aimals hospitals, etc. it is wise to isolate those infected from those who are not.

What are the symptoms of coccidiosis? The primary sign of an animal suffering with coccidiosis is diarrhea. The diarrhea may be mild to severe depending on the level of infection. Blood and mucous may be present, especially in advanced cases. Severely affected animals may also vomit, lose their appetite, become dehydrated, and in some instances, die from the disease.

Most infected kittens and puppies encountered by Amber Technology are in the four to twelve week age group. The possibility of coccidiosis should always be considered when a loose stool or diarrhea is encountered from this age group. A microscopic fecal exam by a veterinarian will detect the cysts confirming a diagnosis.

What are the risks? Although many cases are mild it is not uncommon to see severe, bloody diarrhea result in dehydration and even death. This is most common in animals who are ill or infected with other parasites, bacteria, or viruses. Coccidiosis is very contagious, especially among young kittens and puppies. Entire kennels and catteries may become contaminated with puppies and kittens of many age groups simulatneously affected.

What are the Coccidia formula ingredients? The natural Coccidia formula contains human grade anti-microbial and anti-parasitic herbs: Olive leaf, mustard seed, black seed, pau d'arco, cloves, grapefruit seed extract, alcohol, and distilled water.

Suggested dosage is based on the weight of the animal. Shake Well. Give 2-15 drops orally, 4x/day for 10 days. One bottle will treat approximately 3 medium sized puppies.

Where dogs are vomiting and having diarrhea some dogs would be more comfortable if given Parvaid in addition to the Coccidia formula. Parvaid helps calm the stomach, boost the immune system and helps stop the vomiting and diarrhea.

Where cats are vomiting and having diarrhea some cats would be more comfortable if given Feline Distemper remedy in addition to the Coccidia formula. Feline Distemper helps calm the stomach, boost the immune system and helps stop the vomiting and diarrhea.

Coccidia has a 4 year shelf life.
