Salinomycin is commonly used for controlling coccidiosis in broilers, often in levels of 50-60 g per ton of feed.

Toxicities can occur when broiler feed is accidently mixed with breeder feed. Levels of 10 g per ton of breeder feed can decrease feed consumption, egg production and hatchability. One of the clinical signs that can be visible in breeders is paralysis with the legs backwards.
