Beef and dairy producers can now get better performance from their drench…

Beef Central, 07/12/2021

Cattle anthelmintic resistance is NO LONGER an emerging issue IT IS HERE. Resistant worms are found on almost all cattle properties.

When you treat a population of worms with a single active drench some worms may be resistant, and this leads to an ineffective kill and reduced efficacy. But when treating with Dectomax V, a drench that combines two powerful actives with different modes of action, both of which are targeting the same worm to ensure an effective kill, even resistant worms are killed, unlocking your herd’s full productivity potential.

Dectomax V treats resistant worms and slows the onset of resistance.

An injectable formulation enables the right dose every time

When dealing with resistant parasites, delivering the right dose is vital. Dectomax V is an injectable formulation that provides you with easy reliable dosing so you can keep resistance at bay.

When a drug is delivered by injection, all of the potential barriers to absorption are avoided.

An injectable drench is deposited below the skin and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Injectable drenches therefore achieve higher peak blood and tissue levels compared to pour-ons.

Pour-on products result in variable dosing of cattle, as some of the pour-on product is absorbed across the skin and some is absorbed by cattle licking the product off themselves and other cattle. Therefore, the licking behaviours of different cattle can result in unreliable dosing and even underdosing.
