Subject: coccidia

""I called the store where I purchased her, and he
said that she most
likely had coccidea, and he is sending me out
something called Alban
to treat it. The Alban should clear it in 24 hours he
said. He said
it is common in European ferrets and probably most
american vets will
not know what it is.""

Coccidia is fairly common here in the SE US where I
work in a vet clinic. We see it in many stray dogs or
puppies that weren't raised in a real good setting. We
also use albon to treat it. We usually treat for more
than just one day, though.
