It is used as a therapeutic agent against Eimeria infections in poultry, especially E. tenella, E. necatrix, E. acervulina and E. praecox. It is effective against other protozoal infections like Histomoniasis (Blackhead) in poultry and turkeys; against coccidiosis in calves, lambs, kids and pigs; against amoebiasis in various species.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS:

Do not use in layers producing eggs for human consumption.
