Eimeria is an Apicomplexan protozoan parasite which causes Coccidiosis in different animals. Infection develops mainly in large and small intestine of most wild animals and poultry birds including other pet birds. The disease is pandemically distributed throughout the globe with varieties of species. This clinical situation mostly prevails in different parts of the visceral organs like pancreas, liver and caecum of all animals. The life cycle of the parasite is almost same everywhere and not able to produce any lethal effect to the hosts. Suitable temperature can trigger the entire mechanism of life cycle of the species. The prevention and control of the disease are important otherwise poor reflection will get associated with economic loss in any type of large and small scale production and maintenance of wildlife conservation (captive and free range system). There is no record readily available in any literature about zoonotic importance of coccidiosis.
