Dectomax Injectable Solution for Cattle & Sheep 50ml (50ml)

Dectomax solution for injection is a highly active broad spectrum endectocide for parenteral administration to cattle and sheep. It contains doramectin, a novel fermentation-derived avermectin discovered by Pfizer.

Cattle
Dectomax solution for injection is indicated for the treatment and control of the following harmful species of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, eye-worms, warbles, lice and mange mites in cattle.
Gastrointestinal roundworms (adults and fourth stage larvae)
Ostertagia ostertagi (incl. inhibited larvae)
O. lyrata
Haemonchus placei
Trichostrongylus axei
T. colubriformis
Cooperia oncophora
C.pectinata
C.punctata
C.surnabada (syn. mcmasteri)
Nematodirus spathiger1
Bunostomum phlebotomum1
Strongyloides papillosus1
Oesophagostomum radiatum
Trichuris spp.
Lungworms (adults and fourth stage larvae)
Dictyocaulus viviparus
Eyeworms (adults)
Thelazia spp.
Warbles (parasitic stages)
Hypoderma bovis, H.lineatum
Sucking lice
Haematopinus eurysternus. Linognathus vituli, Solenopotes capillatus
Mange mites
Psoroptes bovis, Sarcoptes scabiei adults only
Dectomax solution for injection may also be used as an aid in the control of Nematodirus helvetianus, biting lice (Damalinia bovis) and the mange mite Chorioptes bovis.
The pharmacokinetics of Dectomax solution for injection allow protection of cattle against infection or re-infection with the following parasites for the period indicated:
Species


Bunostomum phlebotomum
22 days
Cooperia oncophora
21 days
Dictyocaulus viviparus
35 days
Haemonchus placei
28 days
Linognathus vituli
28 days
Oesophagostomum radiatum
21 days
Ostertagia ostertagi
35 days
Psoroptes bovis
42 days
Trichostrongylus axei
28 days
To obtain optimal benefit from the action of Dectomax solution for injection, it is recommended that cattle which are set-stocked should be treated at turnout and eight weeks later. Studies have demonstrated that, used in this way, Dectomax will reduce the build-up of infective larvae on pasture and can protect animals from parasitic gastro-enteritis and parasitic bronchitis throughout the grazing season. To obtain these results, all animals must be included in the programme and untreated cattle must not be introduced on the pasture. Treated cattle should always be monitored according to good husbandry practices. Treatment with Dectomax solution for injection at turnout and eight weeks later of cattle set-stocked for the grazing season can protect against clinical disease caused by lungworm and may allow the development of naturally acquired immunity. However, due to the unpredictable nature of lungworm epidemiology, clinical signs of lungworm disease may on occasion be seen, particularly towards the end of the grazing season, if the season is long. If this occurs, cattle should be further treated with an anthelmintic effective against lungworm.
Sheep
Dectomax solution for injection is indicated for the effective treatment and control of Psoroptes ovis (sheep scab mite) and Nematodirus battus at the recommended dose rate of 300 mcg/kg bodyweight (1 ml/33 kg).
Dectomax solution for injection is indicated for the treatment of the following species of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms and nasal bots in sheep at the recommended dose rate of 200 mcg per kilogram bodyweight:
Gastrointestinal roundworms (Adults and fourth stage larvae(L4) unless otherwise indicated)
Chabertia ovina (adults only)
Cooperia curticei (L4 only)
C. oncophora
Gaigeria pachyscelis
Haemonchus contortus
Nematodirus battus (L4 only)1
Oesophagostomum columbianum
Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta *
Strongyloides papillosus
Trichostrongylus axei
T. colubriformis
T. vitrinus
Trichuris spp. (adults only)
* Inhibited larval stages (L4) including strains that are benzimidazole resistant, are also controlled.
For effective treatment and control of both adults and L4 larvae of Nematodirus battus a dose rate of 300 mcg/kg is required.
Lungworm
Dictyocaulus filaria (adults only)
Nasal bots (1st, 2nd and 3rd instar larvae)
Oestrus ovis

Directions For Use

Directions for Use

Dectomax is a clear, sterile solution. In common with other non-aqueous formulations the product contains no antimicrobial preservative. Dry, sterile equipment and aseptic procedures should therefore be used when administering Dectomax to animals. Swab the septum before removing the dose. When the temperature of the formulation is below 5?C, syringeability may be improved by gently warming the injecting equipment and product.
When treating groups of animals, use only the Dectomax automatic dosing device and vented draw-off apparatus. When treating individual animals syringes must be filled from the vial through a dry, sterile draw-off needle that has been placed in the vial stopper. Vial stoppers must not be broached more than 20 times.
Cattle
Administer Dectomax solution for injection at a dosage of 200 mcg doramectin per kilogram of bodyweight by the subcutaneous route. Each ml contains 10 mg of doramectin, sufficient to treat 50 kg of bodyweight. Each injection should be made into the neck region using a dry sterile 16 to 18 gauge needle, 15 mm in length.
Sheep
For the treatment and control of Psoroptes ovis (sheep scab mite) and Nematodirus battus, a dosage of 300 mcg/kg bodyweight should be used by the intramuscular route. Each ml contains 10 mg of doramectin, 1.0 ml is sufficient to treat 33 kg of bodyweight


In adult sheep each intramuscular injection should be made using a dry sterile 16 to 18 gauge needle, 25 mm in length. (For the treatment of individual sheep a disposable 2 ml syringe calibrated in increments of 0.1 ml should be used).
Suggested dose rates for Psoroptes ovis (sheep scab mite) and Nematodirus battus: 1 ml/33 kg bodyweight (300 mcg/kg). For sheep over 16 kg bodyweight see data sheet. In young lambs of less than 16 kg bodyweight seek veterinary advice regarding the use of appropriate sized needles and of 1 ml disposable syringes graduated in increments of 0.1 ml or less. Suggested dose rates at 1 ml/33 kg bodyweight (300 mcg/kg) in young lambs found in data sheet.

For treatment of gastro-intestinal roundworms, lungworms and nasal bots, administer Dectomax solution for injection once at a dosage of 200 mcg doramectin per kilogram of bodyweight by the intramuscular route. Each ml contains 10 mg of doramectin, sufficient to treat 50 kg of bodyweight.

Active Ingredient

Dectomax Injectable Solution for Cattle & Sheep 50ml (50ml) ingredients

Q & A

Q. can I give DECTOMAX a my dog
A.

I really wouldn't recommend it - Dectomax hasn't been tested for safety in dogs, and as an oily liquid, it may cause a serious reaction.

Q. Could I inject dectomax into my english bulldog he has really bad skin allergy and we know its some sort of bacteria he has...
A.

Dectomax isn't an antibiotic, and won't have any effect on bacteria. In addition, it isn't licensed for use in dogs, and there aren't any safety studies, so I would advise you NOT to try it unless specifically directed by your vet.

Q. What is the meat withdrawl period for sheep
A.

Meat withdrawal for sheep is 63 days after the LAST treatment with Dectomax.

Q. We have administered Dectomax to pregnant ewes, and it seems it is having an effect on the newborn lambs. 2 have died already and 2 seems to be having a spasm and are walking skew. Is there any advise?
A.

I have checked, and Dectomax Injection is licensed for use in pregnant ewes - the manufacturers have apparently tested it for safety, so I very much doubt its the Dectomax causing the trouble, unless it became contaminated in use.
It sounds like you may have a whole-flock problem - it could be a mineral deficiancy, but it sounds quite like an infectious disease, and I'd very strongly advise you to get in touch with your vet, as there may be diagnostic tests needed to tell what the problem is and, more importantly, how to stop it spreading.
