Dectomax Injectable solution is a ready-to-use, colourless to pale yellow, sterile solution containing 1% w/v Doramectin (10mg/mL).
In cattle, Dectomax is formulated to deliver the recommended dosage (200u/kg of body weight) when given by subcutaneous (SC) injection at the rate of 1mL/50kg of body weight. Dectomax® injection is indicated for the treatment and control of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, sucking lice, biting lice, cattle tick and mange mites. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism
Consistent, persistent activity against Cooperia, Ostertagia and Haemonchus, the three most prevalent internal parasites of grazing cattle in Australia.
In a study investigating the effect of Dectomax injection on the growth rates of grazing cattle, Dectomax-treated cattle outperformed untreated cattle by 24 kilograms over 140 days.
As an injectable formulation, Dectomax Injectable delivers effective reliable parasite control. Unlike a Pour-On formulation there are no barriers to absorption such as skin, dust, and environmental factors. The injectable formulation also reaches higher blood drug concentration.
Dectomax protects against re-infection from more of the important profitability-robbing parasites, both internal and external, than any other cattle drench. Maximum weight gains from superior parasite control
Dectomax contains the unique molecule doramectin, with a chemical ring at the C-25 position of its core active structure. This makes Dectomax active for longer, so it protects for longer.
Because it protects for longer, Dectomax keeps pastures cleaner for longer. Which means you can extend the time between treatments. And fewer treatments save time and money.
Dectomax Injectable is an oil based formulation which makes it tissue friendly and easy to inject
Dectomax Injectable has a wide safety margin in all ages of stock, including young calves, pregnant stock and bulls.
Dosage and Administration
Administer Dectomax® injectable solution at the recommended dosage of 1mL (10mg doramectin) per 50kg body weight by subcutaneous injection.
Injections should be given using 16- to 18-gauge needles, regardless of administration route. Needles (12-18mm) in length are suggested for SC injections, which should be given under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder.
