In the present study, the incidence and prevalence of coccidian infection among domestic rabbits in Egypt were investigated. [] Key Result Severe overall prevalence reaching 70% (70/100) was recorded. Eight species of Eimeria were detected. Mixed infection with three different species occurred most frequently. Eimeria intestinalis and Eimeria coecicola were generally the most predominant species. The complete life cycle of E. intestinalis was investigated. This study is the first to report coccidia in…
Prevalence of coccidia (Eimeria spp.) infection in domestic rabbits, Oryctolagus cuniculus, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
The prevalence of coccidia infection among domestic rabbits in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was investigated for one year and ten species of Eimeria were identified in 100 fecal samples, with mixed infection with three different species occurring most frequently.
Prevalence and morphological identification of Eimeria spp. in domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Sharkia province, Egypt
TLDR
It can be concluded that the current research provides appropriate data that help for assessing the potential infection and future control measurements against rabbit coccidiosis to mitigate the financial losses in rabbit industry in Egypt.
An epidemiological study on endoparasites of domestic rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Egypt with special reference to their health impact
TLDR
The characteristics of the prevalence of rabbit enteric parasite infection in Egypt were shown and relevant ‘baseline’ data was provided for assessing the effectiveness of future control strategies against these parasites in Egypt.
Coccidiosis in rabbits in a subtropical hilly region
TLDR
It has been concluded from this study that pathogenesity of species of Eimeria and effectiveness of medicine are region specific and only intestinal coccidiosis could able to causes mortality in rabbit without involvement of the hepatic coccidia.
Short communication: prevalence of Eimeria spp. infection in domestic rabbits of Polish farms
TLDR
The result obtained revealed that the prevalence of rabbit coccidiosis in Poland backyard farms is high and may contribute to the development of effective control programmes.
Investigation of gastrintestinal parasites in rabbits of the species Oryctolagus cuniculus in the Northwest region of São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
Enteroparasites can be pathogenic for the rabbit population and for this reason, it is extremely important for the implantation of parasitic control of rabbits kept in bioterium for scientific purposes, the monitoring of possible infections by means of periodic coproparasitological exams.
Intestinal coccidiosis infection in domestic rabbits
TLDR
The present study reports about the intestinal coccidiosis in a commercial rabbit farm in Tirupati during the month of August, where seven New Zealand white rabbits had signs of anorexia, diarrhea, dullness and weakness and post mortem examination noticed hyperemic and oedematous intestinal mucosa.
Dynamic of oocystal excretion of coccidiosis in female rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and their litters, from pregnancy to fattening
TLDR
The observed excretion patterns revealed that the rabbits will be prone to coccidiosis in the beginning and the end of lactation while the sensitivity of the young rabbits would be more evident in the days following weaning.
Coccidiosis: A Parasitic Disease of Significant Importance in Rabbits
TLDR
Light is shed on coccidiosis in rabbits considering pathology, diagnosis, and control by adopting hygienic measures and using different anticoccidial drugs.
Occurrence of Eimeria species (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) in domestic rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Qena Governorate, Upper Egypt
TLDR
The present study calls for further study on these species with a focus on providing molecular phylogenetic work and declaring control strategies against these species.

Studies on coccidia species of genus Eimeria from domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus domesticus L.) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
E. stiedae, E. piriformis and E. exigua were identified and recorded for the first time from rabbits in Saudi Arabia and are considered as new locality or geographical distribution.
Rabbit coccidiosis and its control : a review
TLDR
In view of the limitations of chemotherapy, it is imperative to develop immunoprophylactic measures against rabbit coccidiosis, including development of live-attenuated and recombinant vaccines against the parasite.
Eimeria species in wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Fars province, Iran.
TLDR
Analysis of wild rabbits from Fars province, south of Iran found immunity induced by long term exposure to low doses of oocysts shedded by the carrier animals probably have pivotal role in impairing parasitic developmental cycles and preventing acute coccidiosis.
Coccidiosis of the wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in France.
TLDR
The equilibrium between congeneric species of rabbit coccidia (stable prevalence rank, variable parasitic load) is thought to be probably the consequence of the opportunistic feeding habits of rabbits.

Coccidiosis is an important disease of the turkey caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Eimeria. E. meleagridis Tyzzer, 1927 was the first species to be described from this host, and is
Light microscopic study on Eimeria species infecting Japanese quails reared in Saudi Arabian farms
TLDR
Japanese quails Coturnix coturnix japonica reared in economic farms were individually investigated for coccidian infections, and another Eimeria species occurred, the oocysts of which were excreted in low numbers and were characterized by the absence of a micropyle and an oocyst residuum.
The anticoccidial efficacy of robenidine hydrochloride in Eimeria challenged rabbits.
TLDR
In the present trial, the efficacy of robenidine hydrochloride, registered under the tradename Cycostat 66G for breeding and fattening rabbits, was compared with a diclazuril treated and a non treated control group in an Eimeria challenge model, leading to significantly better zootechnical results.
The efficacy of ivermectin in treating rabbits experimentally infected with Eimeria as indicated parasitologically and histologically.
TLDR
The treated animals with one or two doses showed mild coccidiosis with very few number of oocysts deposition & rapid intestinal regeneration with degenerated Eimeria developmental stages, especially the asexual ones.
