Control of coccidiosis in poultry: use of salinomycin (Coxistac, Pfizer) in farm conditions in Senegal

Control of coccidiosis in poultry: use of salinomycin (Coxistac, Pfizer) in farm conditions in Senegal

In a commercial broiler unit rearing day-old chicks imported from France, salinomycin incorporated in the feed at 50 mg/kg gave good control of coccidiosis, as shown by faecal egg counts and intestinal lesion scores, in comparison with a control group not given anticoccidial except for sulfadimerazine administered by the proprietor between days 25 and 28 and between days 35 and 38.
