Subject: What is Coccidia?

I have searched the archives using the word "coccidia" but I have yet
to find the basic information about what it is, how it is transmitted
etc. Looks like everyone who posted about it knew exactly what it
was and had specific treatment questions.

What I would like to know is the basics.....

What is it?
Where does it come from?
How is it transmitted?
How contagious is it?
Is it fatal to ferrets?
Can if be transmitted from human to ferret or vice versa?
How do you treat it?
Anything else you feel is pertinant...

Thank you
