Per Acute Coccidiosis

Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease which is caused by protozoa of the phylum Apicomplexa genus Emeria in poultry.

Coccidiosis is especially important in intensive broiler poultry operations due to high stocking density on litter, which favour the build-up of potentially pathogenic populations of the parasite

There are seven most important species of coccidia which causing coccidiosis in different site of intestinal tract of poultry. Example

Emeria acervulina- in duodenum

Emeria maxima – InJejunum

Emeria nicartrix- in Ileum

Emeria tenella– In Ceacum

Postmortem Findings
