Efficacy of monensin or amprolium in the prevention of hepatic coccidiosis in rabbits
Journal of Protozoology 19(2): 332-334
New Zealand White rabbits were fed monensin (Coban® Premix) or amprolium in pelleted feed as a prophylaxis against infection with Eimeria stiedai. Rabbits receiving monensin at 0.005, 0.01, or 0.02% concentrations in the feed did not become infected but ate only small amounts of pellets when the drug concentration was 0.02%. All rabbits given 0.02% amprolium in pelleted feed developed severe infections. Rabbits on "limited" (8 gm pellets per day) diets were susceptible to infection.
