Poultry coccidiosis is a common and economically significant disease that affects poultry worldwide. Current treatment options for coccidiosis include using chemical agents such as ionophores and antiparasitic such as Metronidazole. However, there is growing interest in alternative treatments, such as herbal medicines, due to concerns about antiparasitic resistance and residues in poultry products. This review article aims to provide an overview of herbal medicines as potential treatments for poultry coccidiosis. The article summarizes the current research on herbal medicines for coccidiosis and highlights the potential benefits and limitations of using herbal medicines as an alternative to conventional treatments. The article explores the effectiveness of various herbal medicines in treating poultry coccidiosis, explaining how they work and presenting research findings on their efficacy. It also addresses challenges related to using herbal medicines, such as establishing standardized doses and conducting clinical trials. The review concludes by summarizing the main points and recommending further research on herbal medicines for poultry coccidiosis. Ultimately, the review underscores the potential of herbal medicines as alternative treatments and emphasizes the importance of continued investigation in this field.
