Prevention and Treatment of Coccidiosis
The proven power of CORID® (amprolium).
◾CORID is the first and #1 selling1 coccidiostat labeled as an aid in the prevention and treatment of coccidiosis (bloody scours) in beef and dairy calves.
◾Only CORID offers a wide range of formulations and package sizes to fit your needs - 9.6% oral solution in gallons or pints, 20% soluble powder in 10-ounce packets or convenient CORID in-feed formulations.*
◾CORID is approved for use in USDA Natural Beef and Never Ever 3 programs when used according to the label.2,3
◾Amprolium has a unique mode of action.
How CORID works
Structurally, CORID mimics thiamin (Vitamin B1) which is required by coccidia for normal growth and reproduction. When coccidia ingest CORID, they experience thiamin deficiency and starve from malnutrition. CORID has been experimentally administered at many times the recommended dosage and duration with no signs of toxicity.
When CORID works
CORID stops coccidia at a critical stage in the host animal's small intestine to prevent more damaging coccidiosis in the large intestine. By acting on the young asexual stages of the coccidia life cycle, CORID allows exposure to first-generation schizonts, so the host animal can develop natural immunity to coccidia. This makes CORID effective as a preventive therapy.
How CORID pays
PREVENT THE DISEASE - Use a 21-day prevention program.
◾Administer CORID when experience tells you conditions are favorable for the development of coccidiosis or any time cattle are exposed to unusual stress
◾CORID effectively breaks the coccidia life cycle before a clinical coccidiosis outbreak can occur
◾Preventing coccidiosis allows animals to absorb nutrients naturally, so they maintain the ability to fight stress
◾CORID helps to reduce the spread of infective coccidia oocysts
TREAT THE OUTBREAK - Use a five-day treatment program.
◾Administer CORID at the first clinical sign of coccidiosis, such as diarrhea and dehydration
◾CORID stops the development of merozoites before they further damage the large intestine
◾CORID helps to reduce oocyst discharge in the feces, to reduce disease spread
◾Drinking water or drench administration ensures CORID will reach the intestine, even in animals with reduced feed intake and low gastrointestinal motility
◾CORID is the only coccidiostat that treats clinical coccidiosis
CORID. To help prevent and treat coccidiosis, count on the expert.
◾Unique flexibility. CORID is labeled to both help prevent and treat bovine coccidiosis (bloody scours) caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zurnii in calves.
◾Administration flexibility. CORID can be administered in drinking water, as a drench, or in-feed to prevent or treat bovine coccidiosis.
◾CORID should be used on a group, pen or herd basis. When one or more calves show clinical signs of coccidiosis, it's likely the rest of the group has been exposed to coccidia and all calves in the group, pen or herd should receive CORID.
◾Palatable. CORID is palatable and readily accepted by cattle.
◾Safety. CORID has been tested at many times the recommended dose levels and has a wide safety margin.
