Vecoxan is used for the treatment, prevention and control of coccidiosis in lambs and calves. Vecoxan in lambs is particularly useful if given at about 4-6 weeks of age, depending on the peak risk period which historically has been observed on a particular farm. If necessary, a repeat dose can be given 3 weeks later. (Usually lambs are born with immunity transferred from the ewe, but this gradually wanes and there can be a gap in immunity before the lamb's own immune system starts to provide proper protection. Vecoxan is used to bridge this immunity gap.
Vecoxan for calves is best given as a single dose 14 days after moving to a potentially high risk environment, as shown by experience on a particular farm.
The Vecoxan dose rate is 1ml per 2.5kg bodyweight. It is best to weigh one or two representative animals first, though safety margins are very high in the case of inadvertent Vecoxan over dose.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Vecoxan Anticoccidial Drench, including answers from our team.
My lambs are due their clostridial vaccination at age 2 weeks. Can I also give them Vecoxan at that age or is it a waste of time? Vecoxan info says treat from 4 weeks of age.
It would be best to wait until 4-6 weeks old to treat with Vecoxan. This is when the maternal antibodies passed on from the mother will start to wane. At 2 weeks maternal immunity is still high enough to prevent coccidiosis so treatment is not needed.
