Anticoccidial effects of acetic acid on performance and pathogenic parameters in broiler chickens challenged with Eimeria tenella

Abstract: The objective of the present study was to evaluate the anticoccidial effect of the different concentrations of the acetic acid in the broiler chickens in comparison with the amprolium anticoccidial. A total of 198 chicks were placed 11 per pen with three pens per treatment. The different concentrations (1%, 2% and 3%) of acetic acid and amproilum (at the dose rate of 125ppm) were given to the experimental groups in drinking water from 10-19 th days of age. One group was kept as infected non medicated control a… Show more

“…Coccidiosis is caused by several species of the genus Eimeria, a protozoan. These intracellular parasites usually infect the cells of the digestive tract, causing cell disruption and tissue injury due to the parasite multiplication, causing, consequently occurs bleeding, leading to malabsorption of nutrients and being a gateway to other pathogens (1,2). Broilers, layers and breeders in general are subjected to contamination with Eimeria spp., mainly because in different breeding systems the animals are infected by ingesting sporulated oocysts in water and laying bed.…”

“…Ascaris galli and Heterakis gallinarum are also endoparasites commonly observed infecting chickens. These nematodes normally infect the large intestine of these animals, causing weight loss, diarrhea and intestinal mucosal lesion (2,4). This infection usually leads to irreparable intestine damage, affecting the absorption of nutrients (2).…”
