Necrotic enteritis and coccidiosis: differential diagnosis | PlusVet Animal Health
Enteric diseases are one of the most important problems in the poultry industry because of high economic losses. In recent years, due to increasing resistance to antibiotics and coccidiostats, together with the ban of antibiotic growth promoters, necrotic enteritis and coccidiosis emerged as the most worrisome digestive diseases in the poultry industry. The two diseases are closely related and sometimes happen simultaneously, as we talked about in a previous blog, making the diagnosis complicated. A correct diagnosis is key to choose a successful treatment. The table below aims at helping with the differential diagnosis.
