Treatment of coccidiosis in lambs and calves and prevention of coccidiosis in lambs Add 1.67 kg of premix per tonne of feed, to provide the recommended concentration of 100 mg decoquinate/kg feed (100 ppm). If creep feed is provided to lambs on a restricted basis (e.g. less than 100 g/10 kg bodyweight daily) or calves are fed at less than the recommended feeding rate of 500 g/50 kg bodyweight daily, the level of incorporation should be raised proportionally to achieve the target intake of approximately 1 mg decoquinate/kg bodyweight daily. For example:

Daily feeding rate Rate of inclusion of Deccox
Lambs (feed/bodyweight) Calves (feed/bodyweight)
100 g/10 kg 75 g/10 kg 50 g/10 kg 500 g/50 kg 375 g/50 kg 250 g/50kg 1.67 kg/tonne 2.22 kg/tonne 3.34 kg/tonne

 

Feed continuously for 28 days when coccidiosis is expected to be a hazard. Medication may be continued if there is further risk beyond this period. Prevention of coccidiosis in calves, and as an aid in prevention of coccidiosis in lambs by medication of the ewe feed Add 833 g of premix per tonne of feed to provide the recommended concentration of 50 mg decoquinate/kg of feed (50 ppm). If ewe or calf feed is administered on a restricted basis (e.g. less than 500 g/50 kg bodyweight daily), the level of incorporation should be raised proportionally, to achieve the target intake of approximately 0.5 mg decoquinate/kg bodyweight daily. Feed continuously for at least 28 days to ewes when oocyst shedding is likely to be a hazard to lambs (i.e. before, during or after lambing), or to calves when coccidiosis is likely to occur. The above provides good control of oocyst shedding from ewes under most conditions. In cases where more severe challenge exists, double dosage should be used. As an aid in the prevention of abortions and perinatal losses due to toxoplasmosis by medication of ewe feed For use during pregnancy. Administer medicated feed at a rate to provide the target intake of 2.0 mg decoquinate/kg bodyweight daily, according to the rate at which the product has been included in the ration. Two examples which achieve the recommended dosage of 2.0 mg decoquinate/kg are shown below: 1.Mid pregnancy: Add 6.68 kg of premix per tonne; feed at 250 g/50 kg bodyweight daily. 2.Late pregnancy: Add 3.34 kg of premix per tonne; feed at 500 g/50 kg bodyweight daily. If ewes are to be fed at other rates, the level of incorporation in the feed should be adjusted accordingly. Medicated feed should state the feeding rate required to achieve the target intake of decoquinate. Feed continuously for the last two-thirds of pregnancy (i.e. for the final 14 weeks prior to lambing). On farms with a history of toxoplasmosis abortions, it may be economically beneficial to segregate susceptible ewes (e.g. bought in ewe-lambs) and administer medicated feed only to these animals, as the majority of older ewes will have been previously exposed to toxoplasma infection and will therefore be immune.

Cattle and sheep meat: zero days.

Milk: Not permitted for use in lactating sheep or cattle producing milk for human consumption.
