    • CONTROL OF THE WORMS THAT MATTER
      Consistent, persistent activity against Cooperia, Ostertagia and Haemonchus, the three most prevalent internal parasites of grazing cattle in Australia.
    • BETTER WEIGHT GAIN
      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.
    • CONSISTENT RELIABLE RESULTS
      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.
    • BROADER COVERAGE
      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
    • LONGER PROTECTION
      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.
    • FEWER TREATMENTS
      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.
    • TISSUE FRIENDLY FORMULATION
      Dectomax® Injectable is an oil based formulation which makes it tissue friendly and easy to inject
    • WIDE SAFETY MARGIN
      Dectomax® Injectable has a wide safety margin in all ages of stock, including young calves, pregnant stock and bulls.

    Packaging

    500mL 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.
