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.

Dogs are infected with American Canine Hepatozoonosis by ingesting an infected tick rather than through transmission by a tick bite. Gulf Coast ticks are the most common carries of hepatozoonsis. Symptoms are fever, muscle pain, mild to moderate anemia, runny, eyes and reduced appetite.
My Dachshund Maltese mix was diagnosed with this condition so my vet prescribed Deccox 1/4 tsp twice a day. Thank goodness it works! This is a rare condition that was very hard to diagnose. I definitely recommend this product.

Premier 1 recognized the 50 lb. bag of Deccox 6% available through Premier 1, as well as other suppliers, is often times too big for smaller animal operations. I needed less than 1 lb. to treat one specific animal but found the 50 lb. bag was way over my budget. Premier 1 made a 2 lb. bag available which was much less costly — perfect!
Thank you for satisfying the needs of a smaller operation. The Deccox 6% is onboard as I write this and it’s doing the job. My camel is recovering very nicely.

Great product. Great price. I just wish it came in smaller packages. Maybe break down the dosage for smaller amounts.
