Post by Emmalovesbeth on Wed May 06, 2009 2:44 pm

HELP... Ok this is a cry for help form the local ACS...

There is a outbreak of coccidia(Cocci) in the lastest 60 case.... It is killing guinea pigs and costing hundreds to try and control. This desease i only ever seen in Puppies and kittens ..... It is horrific to watch the animal just gets so sick.

We are looking for ANYBODY that can shed light on this issue...... At the moment everybody is doing what they can however we NEED some straight answers about this condition.


the major one is ...

If you have a 100% healthy cavy can it contract the desease. We have been told Yes and then No and Yes and then No.........
Joey is from the case and is showing no signs.. I have done So much reaserch over the net and called so many vets and Still no plane speaking.

so.
If you have any experiance or no anybody that does can you answer me this.

1. Can a 100% healthy cavy contract it if it has good immune system??
2. Can it be cured or is it for life?

Please any help is appriciated... We are Baycoxing all the animals but dont know if it actually kills it. 100% straight ammonia kills it but you cannot give that to the animal just the living area and Objects..

So PLEASE HELP.. It is desperate other wise me and many other families have to face the fact the animals need to be PTS and Joey is to special to me for that to happen HELP.

Even if you guys can only tell me stuff that relates to dog it would still be helpful.

Sorry but everybody is desperate...

Joey is ok she has no symptoms........ but i am treating her with baycox anyway..

I just wanted to see if anybody here has had it in dogs and knows anymore about it than i do... So far nobody anywhere can tell me more than i already know..

The good this is the straine cavies get cannot be passed to other speicies so atleast the other pets are safe...

Thanks tammy.. so fare we are hopfull we have stopped the spead in other homes and the shelter but it could take a few more months to be sure EEEK.

Sounds as if you have done a lot of work with this and are getting on top of things. I hope Joey stays well. You're a very busy and dedicated girl, Emma!
