Description

Poultry Coccidiosis is a valuable, comprehensive reference that reviews the biology of coccidia, covers current diagnostic and testing procedures, and thoroughly covers the anti-coccidial vaccines and drugs that are currently available. This user-friendly guide will provide poultry scientists, poultry disease diagnosticians, and veterinary practitioners with a well-illustrated description of the Johnson and Reid scoring procedure, thorough explanation of laboratory procedures, experiment design, example protocols for testing anticoccidial drugs, a summary of the chemical name, structure, safety, and efficacy of anticoccidial drugs, and a review of anticoccidial vaccines that are currently available. This easy-to-use reference will be an invaluable tool for anyone working with poultry.
