Abstract:

A total of 40 faecal samples were examined from pigeons belonging to a pet owner at Chennai with the history of inappetance and blood tinged droppings. Microscopic examination of droppings revealed oocysts of Eimeria spp. The birds became active and alert with normal feeding habits after 7 days of treatment with amprolium soluble powder.
