of raptors: significant pathogens or not?
Passerine birds seized and kept in captivity in the visited cities presented parasitism by intestinal helminths and protozoan, with a predominance of infection with coccidia
of the gender Isospora.
A Diagnostic Chart for Nine Species of Fowl Coccidia
Starting in 2011, the team began by vaccinating egg-laying hens to create antibodies for IL-10 and mixed those eggs into animal feed eaten by 150,000 chickens infected with coccidia
, which cause coccidiosis, a common intestinal disease.
The results showed the presence of rickettsiales-like organisms (RLO) in the epithelium of the digestive gland, ciliates, and unidentified coccidia
in gills, a meront-like cell in one digestive gland, digenean trematode sporocysts in gonads, metacercariae embedded in the foot, and turbellarians in gills.
Studies have shown that when goats are heavily infected with coccidia
, they are also more likely to have higher loads of other parasites, such as stomach worms.
An eminent pathologist from Johns Hopkins University theorized, incorrectly, that the attacking organism was a parasite similar to one commonly found in dogs, coccidia
Comparative Genomics of the Apicomplexan Parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum: Coccidia
Differing in Host Range and Transmission Strategy.
Also, studies Uggla, showed that there are common roots taxonomy, between the two of coccidia
[Sarcocyst and Toxoplasma] .

Because coccidial oocysts are ubiquitous and easily disseminated in the poultry house environment and have such a large reproduction potential, it is very difficult to keep chicken coccidia
free, especially under current intensive rearing conditions (Allen and Fetterer, 2002).
Dog faeces may contain parvovirus, whipworms, hookworms, roundworms, threadworms, campylobacteriosis, giardia, and coccidia
Other topics include the overarching mammalian Order Lagophorpha; other genera of coccidia
in rabbits; and strategies for management, control, and chemotherapy.
De los pocos estudios realizados a nivel nacional e internacional en zoologicos y centros de rehabilitacion de fauna silvestre, mediante la utilizacion de tecnicas de laboratorio diferentes a la usada en este estudio, se revela la presencia de huevos y larvas de helmintos como nematodos, cestodos, trematodos y acantocefalos, especialmente de los generos Capillaria spp, Ascaridia spp y diferentes ooquistes de Coccidia
en aves silvestres en cautiverio , que no solo acarrean problemas a las aves que los poseen, sino que aumentan el riesgo de posibles zoonosis, especialmente a aquellas personas encargadas del cuidado y manejo de estos animales en cautiverio .
