Coccidia remedy---Kocci Free
by RutavehausKFK on 09 November 2010 - 01:26
| Just wanted to share this. We recently had a litter of puppies that needed to be treated for coccida. Our vet mentioned this to us. We got it through him but it can be ordered online. Its called Kocci Free. No prescription necessary. It really worked for us on our puppies.|
Has anyone else heard of this or tried it?

|I have used Crrid, liquid form from the feed store. 30cc per gallon of drinking water, treat for 10 days, test and retreat if nec. |
I also heard of something else, will look for the info and forward it to you, the dosage is like 10th of a cc and is a 1 time treatment that kills all lifestages of the parasite. can even be given to moms after whelping.

|Thanks Uberland for sharing. What you use would be good for older dogs, but not for young puppies still nursing. At least thats my way of thinking.|

its called Baycox, I'll track down the correct dosage for puppies, I know its a 10th of a cc, but don't remember for how many lbs.

|I can't find my email, but was forwarded info on Baycox, and it was said to be used on several day old puppies and the mother, no ill effects. as soon as I find out, I'll post it.|

|here it is:|
This product is given 1 time and it kills ALL life stages of Coccidosis.
This is how it is recommended to use:
When a female gives birth; DO NOT GIVE TO PREGNANT MOMMIES
Medicate mom and her puppies when the puppies are 3 to 5 days old.
This will kill anything mom has and anything that is incubating in the puppies.
Then the treatment is done again at 5 wks, 6 wks, 7 wks as per the course that other breeders are using to insure that recontamination does not allow Coccidia to rear it's head again.
The dosage is 1/10 of 1 cc per 1 lb again you only treat 1 time
It kills all life stages.
Very important notes!!
When you place an order no matter where you get it you must get the piglet coccidiocide it is 50g/L, because there is also a horse strength and the active ingredient is too strong to dose down for little puppies.
www.buytoltrazuril.com is the cheapest place to get it. $69 includes shipping for 200 ml
This place charges $110 but has a definition of usage for reference: http://www.interpet.biz/Baycox.HTML
This medication is made by Bayer
The active ingredient is toltrazuril
The name brand is Baycox

|Corid would never be a drug of choice for treating coccidia in dogs . Baycox and Marquis[ ponazuril] also have limitataions albeit they say it kills all stages it must be used prior to symptoms to be effective , type of treatment depends on your situation I think treating adult dogs is fairly fruitless,|

|www.articlecity.com/articles/pets_and_animals/article_1377.shtml this ia an article from Dr Page hes sort of the coccidia expert and is very interesting to talk to sort of the country Vet type but knows a lot about using the Ponazuril correctly he flat out says do not use corid or tribrissen|

|I have been using Kocci Free for 6 years on adult dogs, pregnant bitches & puppies of all ages. It is safe and it works. Here is a link to where I get it: http://wolfcreekranch.net/coccidia.html|
Julie at Wolf Creek Ranch is very helpful and quite prompt when sent an email inquiry.
Hope this helps.

|I've worked at a kennel who bred/imported English bred Corgi's and Westies also had Burmese cats. I believe it was a 90+ dog kennel. the cats wouldn't drink it of course, but all the pups were placed on corrid water at weaning till they left. I have only used it once. and my pups had no issue drinking it. Vet suggested 30cc per 1 gallon of fresh water, I changed the water several times a day.|

|there is no reason on earth to use corid its bitter and the least effective drug out there I cannot imagine why anyone would use it unless they used it because it was cheap..but damn|
