Diclazuril is a benzeneacetonitrile agent with anticoccidial action against Eimeria species. Depending on the species, Diclazuril has coccidiocidal efficacy against the asexual or sexual stages of the parasite development cycle. Diclazuril treatment has only limited effect on the intestinal lesions caused by parasitic stages older than 16 weeks.
Treatment with Diclazuril causes interruption of the coccidial life cycle and of oocyst secretion for approximately 2 weeks after administration. Treatment with VECOXAN® therefore bridges the period of decreased maternal immunity observed at approximately 4 weeks of age.
Vecoxan® is effective in cattle against E. Bovis and E. zuernii, and in sheep against Eimeria parva, E. ovina, E. ovinoidalis, E. ahsata, E. arloingi, E. pallida, E. faurei and E. crandallis.
