Ridacox is a ready to use (thick white) oral suspension for prevention of clinical signs of Coccidiosis and reduction of oocyst shedding in cattle and sheep.

Coccidiosis is a disease of the intestinal tract and occurs most frequently in calves from 1-6 months of age and is one of the most common causes of scour in calves in Ireland. Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease associated with bloody diarrhoea, poor growth and body condition and sometimes death. Clinical sings of Coccidiosis occur most frequently in young animals, but may also occur in adult animals. Diagnosis can be made based on animal symptoms and the history of the disease on the farm. Sampling and monitoring for the presence of Eimeria in faecal samples provides a good overview of the presence of coccidiosis in the herd (sample result does not identify species).

ridacox-infoLife Cycle of Coccidiosis

  • Coccidia oocyst (eggs) are ingested when the calf/lamb consumes contaminated feed/water/grass or lick dirty coats. It goes through various stages inside the animal before
  • being passed out in the manure to further contaminate soil, feed or bedding and the cycle begins again.
  • The oocysts passed out in manure need moisture and mild temperatures to sporulate.
  • They can survive freezing for a few months. 


Management and Control

  • Administer 3-5 litres of colostrum within the first 24 hours of life.
  • Poor nutrition and disease limits the animal’s ability to resist coccidiosis.
  • Only transfer calves from the calving pen to calf shed after cleaning/disinfecting the calf shed. 
  • Severe weather, a change in feed, transportation, overcrowding and unhygienic conditions put additional stress on the animals and can trigger coccidiosis or aggravate it.
  • Establish a pest control programme.
  • Correct cleaning procedures using high-pressure hot water.
  • Keeping environment dry during first week of life to reduce the number of oocysts present.
  • Once calves scour, anti-coccidial therapy has limited effect on preventing the consequences of the disease. Setbacks suffered are impossible to compensate for later.

In herds affected by coccidiosis, a single oral treatment with 15 mg Ridacox 5% per kg live weight to all calves has been found to yield excellent results in control and field conditions
