ABSTRACT

Coccidiosis is a widespread parasitic disease in canary   farms. Isospora canaria and I. serini (Phylum Apicomplexa, Class Sporozoa, Family Eimeridae) are the most frequently coccidian species isolated from canaries. Clinically affected canaries displayed following signs: bloody diarrhoea, sensory depression and abdomen enlargement. Asymptomatic forms are also present. Avian coccidiosis therapy approach is principally based on sulphas delivery. Ionophores and amprolium are also used. Otherwise, no drug is currently licensed for use in canary. The authors compared the efficacy of 3 chemotherapeutic drugs - two sulphas and toltrazuril - during Isospora canaria infections in canaries ( Serinus canaria ) during the breeding season
