The world’s first Dual Active Moxidectin Levamisole Pour-on for cattle. CYDECTIN® PLATINUM is highly effective against key cattle worms including strains resistant to commonly used single active endectocides such as Doramectin, Abamectin, Ivermectin and/or Moxidectin, and/or Levamisole.1

CYDECTIN PLATINUM offers unrivalled worm control through its Dual Actives - the potency and persistency of Moxidectin as well as the broad spectrum activity of a second active, it is highly effective against single and dual resistant worm strains.1,2

CYDECTIN PLATINUM reduces pasture contamination for 21-35 days, has a short 7 Day meat WHP, 20 Day ESI and can be used in dairy cattle 28 days prior to calving. It is non-irritant with the convenience of a low volume pour-on1.

The New DMI-SorbTM Formulation Technology* provides a pour-on that stays on, enhances absorption of the actives and reduces active absorption variability between animals.

  • The world’s first Dual Active Moxidectin Levamisole Pour-on.
  • The most recently tested pour-on cattle drench in Australia, proven to be highly effective against key cattle worms including single and dual resistant strains1
  • The only combination cattle drench with persistent activity that provides cleaner pastures1
  • No known impact on Dung Beetles**
  • Rainfast from 2 hours after treatment1
  • Non-irritant - does not irritate the skin or damage the hide1
  • Low odour and non-flammable


Experts recommend the use of Dual Active drenches with the highest efficacy at every time point in all classes of cattle to optimise productivity to treat and prevent drench resistance.3

  • Leaving worms behind in cattle can lead to significant productivity losses.
  • CYDECTIN PLATINUM provides worm control even in the face of single and dual resistance.

To protect productivity, always use a drench with the highest efficacy.


While drenches can have registered claims for treatment and control of worms, a Drench-Check may reveal a very different picture to what is on the label. CYDECTIN PLATINUM is the most recently developed and trialled drench to hit the Australian market. It has been rigorously tested in registration trials around Australia against current worm strains from key cattle regions. 

CYDECTIN PLATINUM was put to the test under current field conditions in a series of Faecal Egg Count Reduction Trials (FECRTs) in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

CYDECTIN PLATINUM was found to be highly effective against worms at multiple trial sites when compared to single active endectocides 14 days after treatment. Doramectin, ivermectin and moxidectin single active products failed to effectively remove worm burdens 14 days after treatment (less than 95% efficacy).2

Cydectin Platinum graph

  • Doramectin resistant Haemonchus (barber's pole worm) was present on three of four properties (Mt Pleasant, Bingara, Condamine)
  • Doramectin resistant Cooperia was present on two of four properties (Stradbroke and Mt pleasant)
  • Ivermectin resistant Haemonchus (barber's pole worm) was present at both sites (Condamine and Mt Pleasant)
  • Ivermectin resistant Ostertagia, Cooperia and Haemonchus were identified at one site (Mt Pleasant)
  • Moxidectin resistant Cooperia was identified in Uralla

You can be confident that CYDECTIN PLATINUM will perform under current Australian field conditions.


  • Dual Actives - Unrivalled worm control, highly effective against current field strains including strains with single and dual resistance to Doramectin, Ivermectin, Abamectin and/or Moxidectin and/or Levamisole.1
  • Persistent activity and cleaner pastures1 - reduces pasture contamination for 21 - 35 days.
  • Short WHP/ESI offers optimal market flexibility with 7 day meat WHP & 20 day ESI.1
  • The new DMI-SorbTM formulation technology provides increased dermal penetration and enhanced absorption of the actives into the body of the animal.
  • Rainfast - Rainfall from 2 hours after treatment will not affect efficacy.1
  • Does not cause irritation to the skin or damage the hide when used as directed.1
  • No known impact on Dung Beetles** - like the CYDECTIN® POUR-ON and CYDECTIN® INJECTABLE ranges.
  • Safe for concurrent use with vaccines (such as WEBSTERS® 5 IN 1 B12 and WEBSTERS® 7 IN 1), and mineral supplements (such as MULTIMIN®).
