Dosage is 20mg/kg Strength is 5% or 50mg / mL
How does it work? The active substances in this medicine interfere with the enzymes needed for coccidia to breathe. As a result, it is able to kill the parasites at all stages. Also effective against roundworms. Small amounts of coccidia are usually not a threat to adult dragons with established immune systems, young dragons can be very susceptible to coccidosis which can be fatal if not controlled.
5% Toltrazuril Suspension contains 50mg per mL
Shelf life is approximately 2 years

The best way to fight coccidia is by prevention. To help prevent coccidia from infecting your animal, always remove poop as soon as possible. Never feed in any environment where poop is present, not even small particles. Do not allow any animals to eat live bugs that have been hiding in a cage where particles of poop may be present. Do not put any live feeders back in with the others once it has been in any animals cage. Even dust from poop can have coccidia eggs in it, dispose of all uneaten feeders that have been in any cage over 20 minutes. Coccidia kills the cells that line the intestines and can be fatal if left untreated.
Coccidiosis is an infection of intestinal epithelium caused by protozoan parasite of family Eimeriidae.
All livestock species, as well as wild animals, can be infected. Coccidiosis is especially prevalent when birds or mammals are grouped together. Coccidia oocysts are highly resistant to environment conditions, and disinfectants, making coccidiosis control difficult.
Coccidiosis is characterised by an invasion of the intestinal wall by the Coccidia parasite. The parasite then goes through several stages of growth and multiplication, during which damage occurs to the mucosal and submucosal tissues of the intestine.
Depending on the Coccidia strain involved and the animal species affected, the disease complexes can range from subclinical infections to infections that include severe intestinal problems with severe lesions in the gastrointestinal tract, to diarrhoea that can result in high mortality and/or a negative impact on the factors of production.
For the aforementioned reasons, several research institutes have put a great deal of effort into developing different options for controlling coccidiosis. Bayer, for example, developed Baycox® (toltrazuril), which represents one of the most efficient ways to control and prevent coccidiosis in various animal species.
Baycox® demonstrates powerful anticoccidial activity against different stages in the life cycles of the various Eimeria spp. of birds and mammals. It has produced excellent results in therapeutic and metaphylactic programs for a range of animal species.
