Coccidiosis: Why Is It Still So Difficult to Control?

13 June 2014

US - Coccidiosis can be extremely difficult to manage in poultry, says Mark LaVorgna, PhD, nutritionist and technical services director for Zoetis Inc.

According to Dr LaVorgna, this is because the organism that causes it "has a tremendous capability to reproduce and it's very resistant to any kind of attempt to destroy it."

He recommends developing a long-term coccidiosis-management plan that employs all available tools.
