Baycox Coccidiocide is an easy-to-use, single-dose, oral treatment for the control of coccidiosis in piglets and young cattle.
Coccidiosis is a major cause of diarrhoea, dehydration, loss of appetite, poor growth and occasional mortality in piglets between 3-4 weeks of age.
Typically occurring in cattle less than a year old, coccidiosis causes diarrhoea which is often blood stained. Recently weaned calves are susceptible to outbreaks of clinical disease.
- Single dose, oral treatment containing Toltrazuril
- Controls coccidiosis caused by Isopora suis infection of young piglets
- Treatment and prevention of clinical coccidiosis, caused by Eimeria bovis or Eimeria zuernii, in cattle up to 9 months
- Attacks all stages of the parasite in the animal
What are the benefits?
Baycox Coccidiocide for Pigs and Cattle is an easy-to-use, one-dose oral treatment for the control of coccidiosis. Baycox Coccidiocide contains Toltrazuril, an active constituent which destroys all intracellular stages of the pathogen's life cycle in the intestine, without impairing their ability to acquire lifelong natural immunity against coccidia.
For pigs: Baycox controls coccidiosis caused by Isospora suis infection of young piglets. Isospora suis infection is a major cause of diarrhoea, dehydration, loss of appetite, poor growth, and occasional mortality in piglets between birth and 3 to 4 weeks of age.
For cattle: Baycox is for the treatment of clinical coccidiosis, and as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis in cattle up to 9 months of age caused by Eimeria bovis or Eimeria zuernii. Coccidiosis typically occurs in cattle less than a year old, causing diarrhoea, blood loss and poor nutrient absorption. This results in reduced feed conversion and weight gain, and a setback in growth.
