Coccidia Mesa | Treatment Of Coccidiosis

Coccidia Treatment Mesa Coccidiosis

Are you wondering why your cat or dog is experiencing diarrhea? It’s possible they may have Coccidiosis or Coccidia in their intestinal tracks. Coccidea are basically small one-celled organisms (protozoans) that hide out in intestinal tracks of cats or dogs.

*Important – If your dog or cat is experiencing any signs of diarrhea (not just Coccidiosis), you should get your pet examined right away to avoid more severe symptoms or even death. Call us right away at (480) 380 – 6710 to schedule an appointment with our expert veterinarians. Read more about Coccidiosis below..

Coccidiosis disease is most commonly found in kittens and puppies that are six months old or less. Also, in adult cats or dogs whose immune systems are suppressed, or are stressed in different ways (for example; other disease present, change of ownership).

Symptoms of Coccidiosis?

As mentioned above, the most common sign of Coccidiosis is diarrhea. Depending on how severe the infection is, the diarrhea can be mild to severe (Mucous & Blood Present) in advanced cases. Animals with a severe case of Coccidiosis may even lose their appetite, vomit, dehydrate, or in few cases, die from cocccidiosis.

Risks Involved?

Most cases are mild but it’s not uncommon to see severe cases. The severe cases mostly come about in animals who are infected with bacteria, parasites, or other viruses at the same time. Also, Coccidiosis is contagious among young puppies.

What is the treatment of coccidiosis?

There are treatments available for Coccidiosis. The best way to treat and prevent Coccidia is by prescription drugs. However, drugs don’t kill the protozoans, rather they stop them from reproduction. This allow the puppy’s own immune system to fully develop  to kill off the organisms naturally.

Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital will recommend treatments based on your pets condition and overall health.

How Can I Prevent Coccidiosis From Spreading?

Coccidia can be spread by carrier animals, which makes it extremely important to have a strict sanitation plan. Fecal matter should all be removed from the home. Food and water should be clean at all times and should never be contaminated with feces. The best methods is disinfection include; steam cleaning, boiling water immersion, or cleaning with ammonia solution 10%. Also, making sure your home is free of pests and rodents is important as well. Insects and rodents can both carry coccidia. Humans on the other hand cannot be affected by this organism.
