Good news on the coccidiosis front – Baycox is back!

Removed from the market some years ago, this long-acting and effective coccidiocidal compound is now available by prescription from veterinarians once again


I have written about coccidiosis (cocci) more than once over the last several years. The first occasion (Better Pork, October 2004) was to announce that the menace of piglet cocci was alive and well in many farrowing rooms across the country. Some years later, (Better Pork, August 2007) it was when, Baycox (scientific name, toltrazuril), the only product that worked well in combating porcine cocci, was removed from the market by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
