Prevention of coccidia in puppies
by ILGSDs on 11 June 2012 - 04:11
|Does anyone here administer anything to their litters of puppies in order to prevent coccidia? I had a problem with it occuring in the past and I do not want it to happen again. I read that corid could be given to the puppy, if someone could help me with specifics it would be great. How much to give, at what age(s), how long, and how often. Or, an alternative method with dosage specifics. I really appreciate it! Thanks!|

|I've tried Corid in the past, it's an additive to their drinking water, but then the pups didn't want to drink the water, I think it made it bitter. So now I routinely start my pups on Albon about 7 days before leaving my home, and that's worked wonderfully.|

|I had problems with coccidia for years. Most dogs carry it. Puppies seemed fine but once they encouter stress (new home etc.) it breaks out. Albon is good but does not kill it. |
So now I am using baycox (for piglets). I administer at 2,3 and 4 weeks of age. I have done this with my past 3 litters and NEVER had another outbreak of coccidia. Even when puppies went to their new homes they were clear.

It all starts with the mother call "revival animal health" there doctors have come up with a regime
so it cuts down on transfer from mom to pups 1-800-786-4751 my breeder friends use it and it really works .

I use Baycox now. Unlike the albon which takes days and may need another course, Baycox works in one dose and kills all life stages of coccidia. I give it every 10-14 days and always a dose right before pups go home. No coccidia even at their wellness checks after leaving my house. http://www.horseprerace.com/toltrazuril-200ml-p-29.html You can get it here for $60 regularly but right now it is on sale for $50. Dosage is only .1cc/lb so make sure you get a 1ml syringe and a scale to dose accurately.
