Pets affected by Coccidiosis are typically young, debilitated, and/or immunocompromised. Coccidia are protozoal organisms that are an important cause of diarrhea in young pets. Adult pets may be positive for Coccidia, yet do not show any symptoms. Pets with intestinal inflammation caused by Coccidia require antibiotic therapy to help resolve the infection. Easily digested foods and probiotic therapy help the intestinal tract heal more quickly. During treatment, it is important that your pet stays well hydrated; you can add water to their food. Most Coccidia organisms are not contagious to people, however, care should be taken to ensure good hygienic practices including hand washing and bathing your pet during treatment.
