Control of Coccidiosis through a good management
The indiscriminate use of chemical compounds for the control of coccidiosis has developed resistance to certain drugs e.g. Eimeria. Resistance is usually one of the failures in parasite control. The ability of a parasite strain to survive despite the administration and absorption of a drug at doses equal to or greater than the usually recommended giving signals that are not doing things right. Several types of resistance:
– Acquired by heritable reduction in sensitivity of certain strains of Eimeria drug with the passage of time
– Cross, for exchange of resistance between different compounds with similar mode of action
– Multiple resistances to more than one drug despite having different modes of action
There are many aspects of management that can help improve control of the expansion of oocysts in farm. Good ventilation, proper cleaning and humidity control can be very important to have good control aspects. But certainly a good control program should include coccidiostats. At this point I would like to talk about Alquernat Zycox line of pronutrients of Biovet Laboratories.
Pronutrients’ line by Biovet based on technology products meant to provide the animal farm micro-ingredients from plant extracts that animals do not have access to them naturally by the simple fact of not being released. These micro-ingredients in small amounts are able to regulate or stimulate animal physiology by modulating gene expression and “awakening” unexpressed genes, providing the necessary to start work again without causing pharmacological effect.
Pronutrients are natural substances with a defined botanical origin that allow us to eliminate the chemical components of the diet while increasing productivity and efficiency. As components of vegetable origin they do not require withdrawal period, reducing bacterial and parasitic resistances and leave no residue in the animal organism. Under the name of Alquernat Zycox a natural intestinal mucosa optimizer you can find the natural coccidiostat able to help to control coccidiosis in farm. Alquernat Zycox has direct effect on the intestinal mucosa optimizing its performance and preventing intracellular invasion of coccidia during the first phase of the reproductive cycle of the parasite. It also has an indirect effect on the immune system, as specific immune activator of the intestinal immune response.
