Author(s): S Maheshwari, K Shibi Thomas and R Nithiaselvi
Abstract: Bovine coccidiosis caused by protozoan parasites is reported in animals less than one year age and occasionally occurs in adults. One Jersey crossbred male calf about one and a half month old with a weight of 30 kg maintained at Livestock Farm Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Orathanadu was affected with cocccidiosis during the month of October 2023. The affected animal showed clinical symptoms of bloody diarrhea with eroded mucus tissues and frequent straining to pass faeces.
