Information about the most important signs of Coccidiosis
- Loss of weight
- Loss of condition
- Loose/soft droppings
Coccidiosis problems mainly occur in birds with low resistance and immunity; a primary illness, stress or a humid environment with litter on the floor. In severe cases the pigeons produce watery droppings and slowly lose weight.
Treatments can be used on a regular basis to keep Coccidiosis levels down, but as a clinic we always believe in testing before treating , so please always get your birds tested before treating. Belgica highly recommends having your pigeons tested prior to racing, during the racing season, before the winter period and prior to pairing.
