The product has been formulated for topical application specifically for cattle. It should not be administered to other species as severe adverse reactions may occur. Cases of intolerance with fatal outcome have been reported in dogs, especially Collies, Old English Sheepdogs and related breeds or crosses, and also in turtles/tortoise. Care should be taken to avoid ingestion of spilled product or access to containers by these other species.
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients.
For external use only.
This product is to be applied to skin surface only.

As is the case with similar products, in rare cases small skin lesions may occur at the administration site.
Dectomax Pour-On for Cattle may be irritating to human skin and eyes and users should be careful not to apply it to themselves or to other persons. Operators should wear rubber gloves and boots with a waterproof coat when applying the product. Protective clothing should be washed after use. If accidental skin contact occurs, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water and get medical attention.

Extremely dangerous to fish and aquatic life. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with the product or used container. Any unused product or waste materials should be disposed of in accordance with national requirements.
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
•Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
•Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of a dosing device (if any).
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. faecal egg count reduction test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to a different pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
To avoid secondary reactions due to death of Hypoderma larvae in the oesophagus or spine, it is recommended to administer Dectomax Pour-On at the end of the period of warble fly activity and before the larvae reach their resting sites. Consult your veterinary surgeon on the correct timing of treatment.
