Coccidiosis in rabbits – intestinal parasites that cause diarrhoea
One of the most common diseases in rabbits is coccidiosis. Coccidiosis is an infection caused by parasites (coccidia) in the intestines. Contamination is possible through eating grass and hay in the rabbit pen that harbours the eggs (oocysts) of these parasites. While rabbits with a healthy immune system will not be affected by them, young rabbits or adults with a compromised immunity can become very ill. In this article you will find out more about the symptoms and treatment of coccidiosis in rabbits.
