dc.description.abstractThe therapeutic effect of monensin on natural coccidial infection was tested in two trials. Lambs with heavy mixed infections were fed a diet containing 20g monensin/tonne over a period of 14 days. In both trials and over a period of 35 days, coccidial oocyst output in non-medicated lambs was reduced by 53.6%. In the medicated lambs, it was practically nil. Monensin thus appears to have some therapeutic effect on sheep coccidiosis.en_US
