Baycox Coccidiocide for Pigs and Cattle is an easy-to-use, one-dose oral treatment for the control of coccidiosis. Baycox Coccidiocide contains Toltrazuril, an active constituent which destroys all intracellular stages of the pathogen's life cycle in the intestine, without impairing their ability to acquire lifelong natural immunity against coccidia.
For pigs, Baycox controls coccidiosis caused by Isospora suis infection of young piglets. Isospora suis infection is a major cause of diarrhoea, dehydration, loss of appetite, poor growth, and occasional mortality in piglets between birth and 3–4 weeks of age.
For cattle, Baycox is for the treatment of clinical coccidiosis, and as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis in cattle up to 9 months of age caused by Eimeria bovis or Eimeria zuernii. Coccidiosis typically occurs in cattle less than a year old, causing diarrhoea, blood loss and poor absorption capacity. This results in reduced appetite and ability to convert feed, and a setback in growth.
Convenient single oral dose for easy administration - follow up treatment is usually not necessary
Kills all coccidia development stages
Long acting to suppress oocyst excretion over 42 days
Efficacy is independant of the severity of the infection
Does not impair natural immunity development
Both curative and preventative to ensure production of high value replacements
Directions for Use
Before using this product, obtain a veterinary diagnosis for diarrhoea.
