Corid 9.6% Oral Solution 16 oz.
Coccidiosis is an enteric disease of the small and large intestines. Cattle can become infected by coccidia (parasites) by ingesting feces-contaminated feed, grass and water — or by preening their, or another animal’s, hair coat. Clinical coccidiosis in beef and dairy calves can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, reduced performance and even death. CORID is FDA-approved as an aid in the prevention and treatment of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zurnii.
How CORID works:
Structurally, CORID mimics thiamin (Vitamin B1) which is required by coccidia for normal growth and reproduction. When coccidia ingest CORID, they experience thiamin deficiency and starve from malnutrition.
When CORID works:
CORID stops coccidia at a critical stage in the host animal's small intestine to prevent more damaging coccidiosis in the large intestine. By acting on the young asexual stages of the coccidia life cycle, CORID allows exposure to first-generation schizonts, so the host animal can develop natural immunity to coccidia. This makes CORID effective as a preventive therapy.
