Kochi Free Remedy
Kocci Free(formerly known as Coccidia) is an all natural organic herbal treatment remedy with antioxidants formulated to help your pet overcome coccidiosis (also known as coccidia or cocci) and giardia (aka giardiasis). This natural Kocci Free remedy can help your dog, puppy, cat, kitten, bird, goat, sheep, guinea pig, horse, foal, ferret, rabbit, raccoon, and all other animals eliminate coccidia and giardia infection.
What is Coccidiosis?
Coccidia are small protozoan that multiply in the intestinal tracts of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, goats, rabbits, foals, horses, and all other animals though most commonly in kittens, puppies, kids, and young animals less than 6 months of age, but coccidia can also affect adult animals whose immune system is suppressed or in animals who are stressed in other ways (i.e., change in ownership, other disease present, etc.). Cat and dog coccidia are most often of the genus called Isospora. Isospora canis and I. ohioensis are the species most often encountered in dogs; I. felis and I. rivolta are the most common in cats. Regardless of which species is present we generally refer to the disease as coccidiosis. As a puppy or kitten ages it tends to develop a natural immunity to the effects of coccidia. As an adult it may carry coccidia in its intestines, shed the cysts in the feces, but experience no ill effects.
What is Giardiasis?
Giardiasis, aka Giardia, are small protozoans that can affect nearly all warm blooded beings, humans and animals. Animals or people can be affected by consuming water or food that is contaminated with giardia cysts. When giardia reach the gastrointestinal tract they swiftly multiply and block the intestinal absorption causing loose, mucousy stools, diarrhea, listlessness, weight loss, dehydration, and can cause scarring in the small intestine, pancreatic insufficiency, and malabsorption syndromes.
People can get giardia infections from their pets. Fecal testing is not as accurate as it should be. People and animals can test negative even when they have giardia infection, so it may take numerous fecal smears to confirm infection.
People and pets that are infected with giardia can get it again, so it is essential to disinfect well. Finding the source of giardia is helpful, as eliminating giardia from your home and property can be difficult as the cysts are very hardy. They can survive standard chlorination protocols for drinking water. They survive freezing down to –13C and in drying fecal material for long periods of time.
How are coccidia transmitted?
A puppy or kitten is not born with the coccidia organisms in its intestine. However, once born, the puppy or kitten is frequently exposed to its mother's feces and if the mother is shedding the infective cysts in her feces then the young animals will likely ingest them and coccidia will develop in their intestines. Since young puppies and kittens, usually those less than six months of age, have no immunity to coccidia, the organisms reproduce in large numbers and parasitize the young animal's intestines. Oftentimes, this has severe effects.
From exposure to the coccidia in feces to the onset of the illness is about 13 days. Most puppies, kittens, and other animals who are ill from coccidia are, therefore, two weeks of age and older. Although most infections are the result of spread from the mother, this is not always the case. Any infected animal is contagious to other animals. In breeding facilities, shelters, animal hospitals, etc. it is wise to isolate those infected from those who are not.
How did my pet get coccidiosis?
Stress plays a role in the development of coccidiosis. It is not uncommon for a seemingly healthy puppy, kitten, or other animal to arrive at its new home and develop diarrhea several days later leading to a diagnosis of coccidia. If the puppy or kitten has been at the new home for less than thirteen days then it had coccidia before it arrived. Remember the incubation period (from exposure to illness) is about thirteen days. If the puppy or kitten has been with its new owner several weeks, then the exposure to coccidia most likely occurred after the animal arrived at the new home. Often, coccidia was present only to surface during the stressful period of the puppy or kitten adjusting to a new home.
What are the symptoms of coccidiosis?
The primary sign of a pet suffering with coccidiosis is diarrhea. The diarrhea may be mild to severe depending on the level of infection. Blood and mucous may be present, especially in advanced cases. Severely affected animals may also vomit, lose their appetite, become dehydrated, lethargic, and in some instances, die from the disease.
Most infected kittens and puppies are in the four to twelve week age group. The possibility of coccidiosis should always be considered when a loose stool or diarrhea is encountered from this age group. A microscopic fecal exam by a veterinarian will detect the cysts confirming a diagnosis.
What are the risks?
Although many cases are mild it is not uncommon to see severe, bloody diarrhea result in dehydration and even death. This is most common in animals who are ill or infected with other parasites, bacteria, or viruses. Coccidiosis is very contagious, especially among young kittens and puppies. Entire kennels and catteries may become contaminated with puppies and kittens of many age groups simultaneously affected.
How is coccidiosis prevented or controlled?
Because coccidia is spread by the feces of animals, it is very important to practice strict sanitation. All fecal material should be removed. Housing needs to be such that food and water cannot become contaminated with feces. Clean water should be provided at all times. Most disinfectants do not work well against coccidia; incineration of the feces, and steam cleaning, immersion in boiling water or a 10% ammonia solution are the best methods to kill coccidia. Coccidia can withstand freezing.
Cockroaches and flies can mechanically carry coccidia from one place to another. Mice and other animals can ingest the coccidia and when killed and eaten by a cat, for instance, can infect the cat. Therefore, insect and rodent control are very important in preventing coccidiosis.
The coccidia species of dogs and cats do not infect humans.
What is the traditional veterinary treatment for coccidia or giardia?
Traditional coccidia or giardia veterinary treatment consists of giving Albon (aka Sulfadimethoxine), Flagyl (aka Metronidazole), or Marquis (Ponazuril) for 10 to 14 days. In some cases, numerous 10 to 14 day treatment cycles are needed. Since neither Albon, Flagyl, or Marquis actually kill coccidia or giardia protozoan, they are not always effective. Kocci Free will eliminate these protozoan, even after numerous rounds of Albon and/or Flagyl have been unsuccessful.

What are Kocci Free's natural remedy ingredients?
Kocci Free contains human grade organic anti-microbial and anti-parasitic herbs:
**Suggested Use for larger animals such as horses, elephants, giraffes, etc.:Add an additional 5 drops of the Kocci Free for each additional 100 pounds of the animal's body weight to each dose. Please note: 100 drops = 1 tsp.; 50 drops = 1/2 tsp.; 25 drops = 1/4 tsp. A one (1) ounce bottle of Kocci Free contains approximately 1080 drops and a 4 ounce bottle contains approximately 4,320 drops.
Suggested Use:Shake well before each use. Select proper dosage of Kocci Free from the chart above. Give orally 4 times daily for up to 10 days. One 1 oz. bottle of Kocci Free will treat approximately 2 medium sized dogs and 3 adult cats. For infections in birds or reptiles, it is suggested to add 1 drop per each ounce of water in their water dish. Do NOT exceed recommended dose!
Suggested Preventative Use: Kocci Free can be given twice a day for 10 days. Begin using a few days before and after a show or boarding at a kennel or when your pet has been exposed to another animal with a viral, bacterial, fungal, or micro parasite infection. For prevention of coccidia and giardia in puppies and kittens, begin 10 day dosing schedule after weaning. This can help prevent your animal from coming down with the infection. Although this is not a guarantee, using Kocci Free as a preventative works well to help prevent disease, if dosed preventatively as soon as you know your pet has been exposed to infection.
Suggested Immune System Enhancement Use: Give 2 times daily.
Suggestion for animals who are reinfecting themselves by eating stools: If your animal is eating stools, it will continue to reinfect itself. Stool eating is often eliminated by feeding food grade diatomaceous earth daily. Feed food grade diatomaceous earth in your animals daily food at double the recommended daily dose once/day for 30 days, then back off to the daily recommended daily dose. IF this does not stop the stool eating, call us. There is a reason and if the food grade diatomaceous earthdoesn't stop the stool eating, we can help determine what else is going on with your animal.
Suggested Use for SEVERE Coccidia or Giardia Infections: In MOST cases, it will take only a 10 day treatment to rid your pet of Coccidia or Giardia. In fact, we have NEVER had a customer have to treat their animal(s) for coccidia with Kocci Free more than one full 10 day treatment. However, if you have a crowded situation (i.e., kennel, farm, unclean property, etc.) you may have to do a 10 day on and 10 day off cycle program. This program consists of Kocci Free and Parvaid (for dogs, horses, and other animals except cats) or Kocci Free and Kitty Distempaid (for kitties, bobcats, lynx, and other feline species). Give both products for 10 days, then go off for 10 days (be sure to cleanse the premises well during treatment). Go back on for another 10 days. You will do this until you have completed 3 ten day cycles. Refer to chart below:
Where dogs are vomiting and having diarrhea some dogs would be more comfortable if given Parvaid in addition to the Kocci Free formula. Parvaid helps calm the stomach, soothe the intestinal tract, boost the immune system, and helps stop vomiting and diarrhea.
Where kittens are vomiting and having diarrhea some kittens would be more comfortable if given Kitty Distempaid in addition to the Kocci Free formula. Kitty Distempaid helps calm the stomach, soothe the intestinal tract, boost the immune system, and helps stop vomiting and diarrhea.
Kocci Free has a 4 year shelf life.

Hi guys, Onyx is 7 months old, time for retest for Giradia. That
is neg, as is Cocci.

Isabelle has come up negative on the Elisa for all parasites.
Though I know she puts little stock in these tests, we have been battling
giardia for quite awhile. Vet practice was as happy as I!! :))

I thought I would provide you an update on the giardia treatment
for my birds. We decided to do the three treatment rotation since Scooter has
apparently had giardia for so long. We just finished up the second 10 day round.
My birds are greatly improved! Gidget had raw patches where she had picked under
her wings and on her lower back. New feathers are growing in! And she used to
pull out feathers and scream as she pulled them. Now I very rarely hear her
doing that. But the real success story is Scooter, our African Grey. He has
NEVER looked so good, knock on wood. This is a bird who has plucked his feathers
since he was 7 months old. I cannot believe the new growth of feathers he has.
He even has a few tail feathers coming in. He seems so happy, too!

By the way - when my adult dogs had a very severe bout of the
giardia several months ago, your Kocci Free was a life saver!! I treated my
pregnant bitch (who had the 10 aforementioned puppies) and the other 3 per your
recommended treatment schedule and had great success. Thank you thank you thank

My other cat had giardia this last September and I used your
Kocci Free on both cats. It worked!
September 27, 2009:
My fiance and I bought a miniature dachshund puppy from a local pet store in Los Angeles. We had no idea where pet-store dogs came from and would soon learn the price of that doggie in the window. When we got her, she had ear mites, an ear infection, a bladder infection, and Giardia. The ear and bladder problems cleared quickly but the Giardia was being incredibly stubborn. She was treated with Panacur (fenbendazole) about 4 or 5 times. One of those times in conjunction with Metronidazole. That combo of medication usually works to rid a pet of Giardia on the first or second try but for whatever reason, our pup was NOT getting better. Her stool was inconsistent and the lab results kept coming back with high numbers of Giardia cysts in her stool. Eventually, a vet we saw for a second opinion suggested that we just put her on a prescription diet (Hills i/d) incase her bowels had problems and suggested that we wait a few months to see if the Giardia cleared on its own. At this point, our pup was being bathed once a week, she was being baby-wiped after every poop and she was kept away from her own feces.
I had bought the Kocci-Free and my fiance and I started the treatment. (He
was skeptical!) We gave her the reccomended dose for 10 days on, 10 days off,
and 10 days on again. By this time, I myself began a receptionist position at a
local vet. I had one of the doctors look her over. He had never seen such a
stubborn case of Giardia in his career. After looking her over, we sent a fresh
stool sample to the lab. I mentioned the Kocci-Free to the doctor who didn't
seem particularly interested nor overly-skeptical. But he probably wouldn't want
to believe it was a natural holistic product that helped rid my pup of the
Giardia. However, after trying medication 5 times and a special diet and extreme
hygenic-ness, it was the addition of Kocci-Free that worked. Thank you
Kocci-free!!!! My dog can now finally socialize without us worrying. She can go
to obedience classes that require a negative-fecal result, and she can be spayed
without worry! WE ARE THRILLED! I'm sure most pets respond to the regular
medicine... but there are some animals that I guess just need an immune-system
boost and natural anti-parasitic. THANK YOU THANK YOU!! We will be getting back
around $700 in vet-fees from this negligent pet store!! And anyone who cant
afford vet care should consider this product to help their pets with Giardia and

Wolf Creek Ranch NOTE: Cathy's dog had been treated with traditional medicine prior to using Kocci Free. The traditional treatments did not cure the giardia, but the Kocci Free did.

I got your Kocci Free a few weeks ago for my ferrets. I wanted to let you know they are free of Giardia! I noticed it getting better around Day 6 and worlds better on Day 8 like you said.
By the way, I will be recommending your products to fellow pet owners - thank
you so much!
August 9, 2008:
I just had to write to tell you how pleased I am with your Kocci-Free!! I
just received the "all-clear-of-giardia" phone call from my vet regarding our
puppy's most recent fecal exam. Three weeks ago I received the disheartening
giardia diagnosis of our 9 week old puppy. I promptly brought home the
recommended 1st of 2 rounds of treatment of Flagyl and Panacur, but could not
bring myself to use them once I "googled" the toxicity of Flagyl. Luckily my
continued "googling" brought me to your website and I ordered and completed a 10
day treatment of Kocci-Free! While being schooled in holistic nutrition and
wholeheartedly embracing the S.A.R.F. diet, I was not familiar with holistic pet
treatments. You will continue to be my "go-to" website for holistic support.
Thank you, thank you, thank you from my family and Portuguese Pointer, Sam.

I am very glad to report that my horse is now giardia free after using your product. I got the results from his test yesterday. I was very worried that it may not have done the job as I ran out of the drops into the 8th day. I had started my dog on them as well but on the 5th day I realized I wasn't going to get the 10 days for my horse. I couldn't get him to take the drops 'neat' so hollowed out pieces of carrot put the drops in then plugged it up with what I had taken out. I didn't know if that would compromise the effectiveness of the Kocci free or not but I really didn't have any choice. So the result is great.
Finally Julie I deeply appreciate your genuine service and help. It is always a risk buying on the internet and having to trust the other party.
April 12, 2008
We bought the Kocci-Free from you for our 5 pups from the mill in northern WI and wanted you to know that they were retested yesterday & today and are NEGATIVE. I truly believe it's because of the Kocci-free.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I wanted to formally Thank You for all of your help.
I have a 6 month old Yorkie named Lizzy who had coccidia/giardia when I contacted you. I had been to the local Vet 4 different times and they had placed her on "albon" and "flagyl". I had tried 3 different rounds of the Albon with no success.
Lizzy has now completed 10 days on the "kocci", as well as the "diatomaceous earth" product and I just had a test done on her this morning and the coccidia/giardia is completely gone. These products work great, and the excellent advice you provided me throughout this process was exceptional.
I will continue the diatomaceous earth products with Lizzy as well as my other dog Dudley as I think it's a great product. I will also keep the "kocci" on hand to use in place of harsh antibiotics.
Best Regards, Shelly Watne, Assoc. Broker

Just thought I'd let you know that we had Gibson's stool tested again and it was free of any Coccidia. Now I know that they say it sometimes can show nothing but they do still have it but for now I am very happy (Gibson too!). I guess the Coccidia remedy worked! Thanks again for all of your help and great info! I attached a pic of Gibson so you could see my 115 pounder!
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Do not give to animals receiving other antibiotics. Do not give in addition to HWF, Vibactra, Vibactra Plus, or Kennel-Koff. Do not exceed recommended dose. An overdose can cause miscarriage. Watch for allergic symptoms such as hives, trouble swallowing and swelling around the eyes. Discontinue use if these symptoms are present. Veterinarian supervision recommended if high blood pressure or diabetes is present. The use of Kocci Free in the presence of endocrine pancreatic dysfunction (e.g. diabetes mellitus or acute infectious pancreatitis) and evidence of liver disease is a contraindication due to the presence of ethyl alcohol in this product.

This product has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
SUGGESTED USE WHEN TREATING MORE THAN ONE PET:
***When treating more than one pet with the same dropper, it is necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe, using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.
The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.***
