Shepherd’s Choice™ Management TipAdding Deccox to trace mineral salt mix is a means of treating pasture lambs. However, the dosage is tricky. Ewes need 0.5 mg per kilogram of bodyweight. (E.g. If ewes are 154 pounds, or 70 kg, they need 35 mg per day.) In a 55 pound mix of Sheep Trace Mineral Premix with salt, add 5 pounds of 6% Deccox®.* Lambs may not eat enough to be treated. One can double the inclusion rate as Deccox is quite safe.
Do not administer to animals producing milk intended for human consumption.

I just started using Deccox. Product came promptly and well packaged.

I have been using Deccox when the lambs and ewes are in the barn, particularly 30 days ahead of lambing until they go out to pasture. Last year I had zero lambs with coccidia and this year we have been able to get all the lambs out go pasture with no coccidia problem. The only downside is it is expensive to use, but not as expensive as dead or poor doing lambs. For best results I keep it consistently accessible to the lambs and the ewes. I do not use this product when the sheep are out on pasture and I don’t use it once they come in for the winter until we are within 30 days of lambing.

Deccox has made a big difference for my horse. He was showing signs of not being 100%. Not neuro, but not himself. I used this product for all my horses and they’ve all shown an improvement, but especially my old guy. I’m going to be doing this on a rotating basis for him. 3 months on, 3 months off. I use 1 tablespoon per 1000 lb horse.

Deccox works great on my horses for treating EPM. I give this to all my horses for 30 days once a year, usually in the spring time.
