FDA Approves First Generic Doramectin Topical Solution for Treatment of Certain Parasites in Cattle

Today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved DectoGard, the first generic doramectin topical solution for treatment and control of gastrointestinal roundworms, lungworms, eyeworms, grubs, biting and sucking lice, horn flies, and mange mites in cattle.

DectoGard is an antiparasitic drug that contains the same active ingredient (doramectin topical solution) in the same concentration and dosage form as the approved brand name drug product, Dectomax (doramectin topical solution), which was first approved for use in cattle on September 16, 1997. Additionally, data demonstrate that residues in food products derived from cattle treated with DectoGard will not represent a public health concern when the product is used according to the label.
