About the Product

Why Use Deccox 1.0 Crumbles D227?
Coccidiosis of cattle is a very common intestinal problem causing mild to severe damage of the intestinal lining and thereby allowing for increased susceptibility to bacterial and viral infections. In the acute form, outbreaks occur as a result of stress due to shipping cattle, weather conditions, processing and many other factors. These clinical outbreaks produce severe diarrhea, hemorrhage and dehydration, and can often lead to death. However, the subclinical form of coccidiosis is equally important to control because this low-level infection interferes with feed consumption, feed conversion, weight gains and serves as the source for a clinical outbreak when stress conditions occur.

When To Use Deccox 1.0 Crumbles D227
Newly arrived cattle, stocker cattle and dairy calves are virtually under constant stress. A high percentage of cattle infected with the subclinical form of coccidiosis indicates that Deccox 1.0 Crumbles D227 should be included in the ration for at least 28 days and in dairy calves up to four to five months.
