Vecoxan is an oral drench for the treatment and prevention of coccidiosis in calves and lambs.
Administration: Vecoxan oral suspension should be administered with a drenching gun. Appropriately graduated drenching equipment should be used to allow accurate dosing. This is particularly important when administering small volumes.
LAMBS: Therapeutic use 1 ml Vecoxan per 2.5 kg bodyweight, as a single administration. LAMBS: Preventative use 1 ml Vecoxan per 2.5 kg body weight at about 4-6 weeks of age at the time that coccidiosis can normally be expected on the farm. Under conditions of high infection pressure, a second treatment may be indicated about 3 weeks after the first dosing.
CALVES: As an aid in the control of coccidiosis 1 ml Vecoxan per 2.5 kg body weight, administered as a single dose, 14 days after moving into a potentially high risk environment. If a satisfactory response is not observed, then further advice should be sought from your veterinary surgeon and the cause of the condition should be reviewed. It is good practice to ensure the cleanliness of calf housing.
Meat: Zero days
