Dectomax Injectable
Expand All
  • Dectomax® injection is indicated for the treatment and control of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, sucking lice, biting lice, cattle tick and mange mites. 

  • Dectomax® injectable is the high performance sports car of drenches. It’s the method of choice for Australia’s leading cattle producers to control internal and external parasites in the herd. Beef cattle can be attacked in two ways. Worms affect their stomach and small and large intestines, while their skin is affected by external parasites such as lice and ticks. Dectomax® injectable gets right to where most of the worm damage is caused. By getting right to the source of the problem, you get less product wastage, a consistent dose and a guarantee that worms will have nowhere to hide. Dectomax® injectable has also been formulated to minimise pain and tissue reaction and is easy to use.

    Dectomax® injectable gets to where it’s needed most – for longer.
