attempted cross-transmission of coccidia between sheep and goats and description of eimeria ovinoidalis sp. n.attempted infection of 2 young lambs with oocysts of eimeria christenseni from a goat was unsuccessful. negative results were obtained also when young kids were fed oocysts of eimeria ninakohlyakimovae from sheep. there was no difficulty in infecting lambs with the sheep coccidium resembling e. ninakohlyakimovae nor goats with the goat coccidium e. christenseni. oocysts from the goat measured 38.4 x 26.7 microns, but were easily distinguished from eimeria ahsata from the sheep by sporocyst size ...1979480272
experimental infections with coccidiosis and serum antibody quantitation in two breeds of goats.two goat breeds, anglonubian and saanen were obtained at an early age and reared coccidia-free until they were 1 month old. they were then infected with 200,000 sporulated oocysts comprising mainly eimeria christenseni (49%), e. apsheronica (29%) and lesser proportions of e. arloingi, e. hirci, e. ninakohlyakimovae and e. alijevi. following patency, the number of faecal oocysts per gram were determined for each animal and body weights taken weekly. an elisa was developed to assay antibody titres ...19883388728
prevention and control of coccidiosis in goats with decoquinate.decoquinate was evaluated as a coccidiostat in domestic goats. fifty goats less than 4 months of age were assigned to 5 groups (pens) of 10 goats each and were treated for 87 days with 0 (control), 0.3, 0.5, 1.0, or 4.0 mg of decoquinate in feed/kg of body weight. goats were inoculated orally weight. goats were inoculated orally with 30,000 oocysts, mainly eimeria christenseni (74%) and e ninakohlyakimovae (20%) on day 19. nontreated goats developed profuse watery diarrhea and tenesmus and gaine ...19863954215
effects of concurrent subclinical infections by coccidia (eimeria christenseni) and intestinal nematodes (trichostrongylus colubriformis) on apparent nutrient digestibilities and balances, serum copper and zinc, and bone mineralization in the pigmy goat.subclinical infections by the intestinal nematode trichostrongylus colubriformis were established in 7 pigmy goats by inoculating each with 4,000 infective larvae 5 days/week for 18 weeks. at the start of the 14th week, 3 of the goats were orally inoculated daily with 10,000 sporulated oocytes of the coccidium eimeria christenseni for 6 days, producing subclinical infections. during selected weeks, the goats were placed in metabolism cages to monitor feed consumption and collect orts, feces, and ...19827181193
life cycle of eimeria christenseni levine, ivens & fritz, 1962 form the domestic goat, capra hircus l.the endogenous development of eimeria christenseni was studied in 10 two-to four-week-old kids inoculated with 10(6)-10(7) sporulated oocysts. they were killed at intervals from two to 26 days after inoculation, and their tissues were examined for endogenous stages of the coccidian by light microscopy. such stages were found in the small intestine and mesenteric lymph nodes. in the sexual cycle, two generations of meronts were found. the first generation developed in endothelial cells of lacteal ...19817252887
enteric coccidia of cashmere goats in southwestern montana, usa.a survey of enteric coccidia was made in a cashmere goat herd in montana, usa. eimerian oocysts were found in 97.2% of 616 fecal samples. newly weaned wethers and does had higher oocyst counts than yearling wethers. nine eimeria species were identified, with eimeria arloingi, eimeria ninakohlyakimovae and eimeria alijevi jointly comprising 88.3% of all oocysts recovered. these three species and eimeria hirci were present in all specimens examined. prevalence of the other species was as follows: ...19947886912
coccidial and helminth infections in goats kept indoors in the investigation was carried out on coccidial and helminth infections in goats kept indoors on five farms in the netherlands. the goats were individually sampled. coccidial oocysts were identified and nematode eggs counted. larval cultures were made and infective larvae identified to the generic or species level. the goats were divided into three groups according to their age: kids, those weaned but not served, and older goats. oocysts were found in 26 out of 27 kids (96.3%), in 52 out of 55 wea ...19968720569
studies on coccidiosis in goats in poland.the study was carried out in a flock consisting of 110 goats. nine species of coccidia were found: eimeria christenseni, e. arloingi, e. jolchijev, e. ninakohlyakimovae, e. alijevi, e. apsheronica, e. caprina, e. caprovina and e. hirci. eighty-one percent of adults and 100% of kids were infected. number of oocysts per gram of feces in kids ranged form 1200 to 202000. clinical symptoms in about 50% of kids were observed. toltrazuril (baycox, bayer), 20 mg/kg of body weight was highly efficacious ...199910206107

influence of climatic and management factors on eimeria infections in goats from semi-arid zones.a survey of eimeria infections was performed in dairy goats and kids (<6 months old) of six farms from a dry desert area of gran canaria island (spain). the number of oocysts per gram of faeces (opg) was determined by a modified mcmaster technique over a total of 2,616 individual faecal samples taken from the rectum in monthly intervals. eimeria oocysts were found in 96.1% of the samples with opg ranging from 1 x 10(2) to 1.4 x 10(6). kid goats had significantly (p < 0.001) higher opg counts (46 ...200617010046
high prevalence of eimeria infection in dairy goats in shaanxi province, northwestern china.abstact: a survey of dairy goats for infection with eimeria species of coccidia was conducted in the shaanxi province, northwestern china between december and november 2010, including saanen and guanzhong breeds. a total of 584 fecal samples (250 and 334 from saanen and guanzhong dairy goats, respectively) in six farms were collected. eimeria oocysts were seen in 568 (97.3%) fecal samples, with six species, namely eimeria jolchijevi, eimeria arloingi, eimeria alijevi, eimeria caprina, eimeria hi ...201122057552
