Administration and dosage

Dectomax Injectable Solution administration:

  • Dry, sterile equipment and aseptic procedures should be used when withdrawing and administering Dectomax. For multiple treatments either automatic injection equipment or an aspirating needle should be used.

Cattle:

  • Administer Dectomax injectable solution by SC or IM route. Injections should be made using a 16 gauge needle for adult cattle or an 18 gauge needle for young animals. Needles 1/2-3/4” in length are suggested for SC administration. A 1-1/2” needle is suggested for IM administration. SC injections should be administered under the loose skin in front of or behind the shoulder. IM injections should be administered into the muscular region of the neck. Beef Quality Assurance guidelines recommend SC administration as the preferred route.

Swine:

  • Administer Dectomax injectable solution by the IM route. Inject in the neck region using an 18 gauge x 1” needle for young animals; a 16 gauge x 1-1/2” needle for sows and boars. To accurately meter doses administered to piglets, use of a tuberculin syringe and 20 gauge x 1” needle is recommended.

  • To effectively initiate control of mange and sucking lice in swine, it is important to treat all animals in the herd. After initial treatment, use Dectomax regularly as follows:

  • Breeding Animals:

    • Sows: Treat 7-14 days prior to farrowing to minimize exposure of piglets to mites and sucking lice.

    • Gilts: Treat 7-14 days prior to breeding. Treat 7-14 days prior to farrowing.

    • Boars: Treat a minimum of 2 times per year.

    • Feeder Pigs: Treat any new feeder pigs upon arrival at farm or before placement in clean quarters.

  • Weaners, Growers, Finishers: Weaners and grow-out/finisher pigs should be treated before placement in clean quarters.

  • For effective mange elimination, care must be taken to prevent reinfestation from exposure to untreated animals or contaminated facilities
