What is Coccidiosis?
Coccidiosis is a common intestinal infection that plagues game birds, caused by protozoan parasites of the Eimeria group. Infection can seriously impair bird growth and lead to increased mortality.
Coccidiosis targets the intestinal tract and can cause severe damage of the gut wall lining, resulting in the development of lesions; this impairs digestion, nutrition absorption, causes severe diarrhoea and ultimately impacts health and performance of the flock.
Disruption of the lifecycle of the Eimeria parasite is the best way to reduce the impact of the disease. Increasing the turnover of epithelial cells lining the intestinal wall means that the parasites are shed before they have the opportunity to develop, reproduce and invade neighbouring gut cells, where they then go on to do more damage.
How Can Oregano Essential Oil Help?
Natural oregano essential oil (OEO) has many properties, including antimicrobial, antioxidant and immunomodulatory functions.
It also possesses anti-protozoal properties as the active ingredients in OEO encourages the rapid replacement of epithelial cells lining the intestinal wall.
This helps shed the Eimeria parasites before they can proliferate in the gut, as well as supporting the rate of healing and repair which reduces incidence and severity of lesions.
