  • Improved Productivity:

    • In stocker trials, DECTOMAX Injectable controlled parasites to outgain injectable ivermectin with clorsulon or ivermectin by up to 26 pounds.1
    • Preweaned calves treated with DECTOMAX Injectable before they went to summer pasture gained 28 pounds more than untreated calves (p = .05) by the time they were weaned.2

    Approved Uses:

    188体育平台DECTOMAX Injectable Solution is approved for:

    • The treatment and control of internal and external parasites of cattle.
    • For use in beef cattle, including pregnant cows, newborn calves and bulls.
    • The control of the following harmful species of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, eyeworms, grubs (see precautions), sucking lice and mange mites. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
    • DECTOMAX Injectable solution has been proven to effectively control infections and protect cattle from reinfection with Cooperia punctata, Oesophagostomum radiatum and Dictyocaulus viviparus for 28 days, Ostertagia ostertagi for 21 days and Cooperia oncophora and Haemonchus placei for 14 days after treatment.

    Product Highlights:

    • DECTOMAX Injectable solution has extended activity—up to 21 days—against Ostertagia ostertagi, one of the most damaging internal parasites. Controlling infection over an extended period delays accumulation of adult worms, subsequently reducing the number of parasite eggs shed onto pasture.
    • No other single injectable product controls a broader spectrum of internal and external parasites as DECTOMAX—including 36 stages of adult parasites, L4 larvae and inhibited larvae.
    • DECTOMAX® Injectable Solution is a ready-to-use, colorless to pale yellow, sterile solution containing 1% w/v doramectin (10 mg/mL). In cattle, DECTOMAX is formulated to deliver the recommended dosage (200 mcg/kg of body weight) when given by subcutaneous (SC) or intramuscular (IM) injection at the rate of 1 mL/110 lb of body weight.
    • As an injectable solution, DECTOMAX offers precision dosing.
    • DECTOMAX is a tissue-friendly injectable solution that can be administered by subcutaneous (SC) or intramuscular (IM) injection in the neck region. The recommended route is via SQ injection to minimize the risk of injection-site blemishes and is in accord with Beef Quality Assurance guidelines.
  • Packaging

    100-mL, 200-mL and 500-mL multi-dose, rubber-capped amber glass bottles contained in a clear polycarbonate shield. The polycarbonate shield holds the bottle during use, has a pre-drilled eye-hook for easy hanging, and can be recycled.

    Dosage and Administration

    Administer DECTOMAX injectable solution at the recommended dosage of 1 mL (10 mg doramectin) per 110 lb body weight by either subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. Beef Quality Assurance guidelines recommend subcutaneous administration as the preferred route.

    Injections should be given using 16- to 18-gauge needles, regardless of administration route. Needles 1/2 to 3/4 inches in length are suggested for SC injections, which should be given under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder. A 1 1/2-inch needle is suggested for IM injections. The only area for IM injections is the muscular region of the neck


  • Why should producers be concerned about protecting their cattle from parasites?

    • Parasites are found in almost all forage situations.
    • Internal parasites cause numerous problems:
      • Suppressed appetite and reduced feed intake
      • Reduced nutritional intake through decreased ability to digest and absorb nutrients
      • Immunosupression resulting in a less than optimal response to vaccination or disease challenge.
    • Reduced nutrition intake impacts many aspects of animal performance including:
      • Gain
      • Feed efficiency
      • Immune response
      • Reproduction

    Why invest in a brand name parasite control product?

    • DECTOMAX is produced by Zoetis, a company that adheres to high standards in its manufacturing facilities.
    • DECTOMAX is the result of decades of research and testing. This results in a reliable product that works the way expected.
    • DECTOMAX has stood the test of time with producers and veterinarians by effectively controlling internal and external parasites.

    What should producers do to properly deworm their cattle?

    • Deworm before turnout, to reduce the total parasite load on a pasture
    • Timing of deworming is crucial
      • Deworming too soon leads to the effects wearing off before the emergence of parasites
      • Deworming too late leads to cattle recontaminating the pasture and newborn calves

    Why use DECTOMAX Injectable Solution?

    • DECTOMAX Injectable Solution 
      • DECTOMAX Injectable Solution is the broadest spectrum, tissue-friendly injectable parasite control product and is especially indicated when targeting internal parasites.
      • DECTOMAX Injectable Solution allows for more precise dosage and application

    • For subcutaneous or intramuscular injection in cattle only.
    • Residue warning: Do not slaughter for human consumption within 35 days of treatment. A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal.
    • Warning: Not for human use. Keep out of reach of children.
    • DECTOMAX is highly effective against all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble) season. Destruction of Hypoderma larvae (cattle grubs) when these grubs are in vital areas may cause undesirable host-parasite reactions, including the possibility of fatalities. Killing Hypoderma lineatum when it is in the tissue surrounding the gullet may cause bloat. Killing H. bovis when it is in the vertebral canal may cause staggering or paralysis. These reactions are not specific to treatment with DECTOMAX, but can occur with any systemic treatment for grubs. Cattle should be treated either before or after these stages of grub development. Consult your veterinarian concerning the proper time for treatment. Cattle treated with DECTOMAX after the end of heel fly season may be retreated during the winter for internal parasites, mange mites or lice without danger of grub-related reactions. A planned parasite-control program is recommended
