[Chemoprophylaxis and therapy of coccidiosis in the rock partridge, Alectoris graeca cypriatis].

A number of coccidiostatica--amprolium (Merek Sharp & Dohme), both for the prevention and treatment, DOT Solubile (By-Gulden) and Esb3 (Ciba Geigy) for treatment--were tested with artificially raised rock partridges on an infected farm. The trials were carried out with a total of 12300 young (12-day-old) birds suffering from spontaneous outbreaks of coccidiosis and 60 such birds with experimental coccidiosis. The comparative study on the results obtained revealed that amprolium produced a good prophylactic effect and a low therapeutic one in cases of clinical coccidioses, used at the rate of 125 mg/kg and offered with the forage mixture. DOT at 30 g/10 1 of water had a pronounced therapeutic effect in the course of 5 days. The preparation Esb3 at the rate of 1 g per one liter of water for 3 days was tested in experimentally induced coccidiosis (E. kofoidi). It produced good therapeutic effects with the highest coccidiosis index ever noted on the second day following infection. It can be applied on occasions of E. kofoidi-induced coccidiosis.
