For the prevention of five clostridial diseases and cheesy gland, and the treatment and control of internal parasites, nasal bot and itchmite in sheep and as a supplementary source of vitamin B12 and selenium.
The treatment of ewes 3-4 weeks prior to lambing to aid in:
Moxidectin is the most potent member of the macrocyclic lactone (ML) family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD SE B12 is a convenient combination of moxidectin, five clostridial disease and cheesy gland antigens. It is ideal for times when ewes or other sheep need a drench and vaccine at the same time.
Selenium deficiency can suppress the animal’s immune system, as well as cause ill thrift, infertility, reduced production and white muscle disease.
Vitamin B12 deficiency occurs where intake of cobalt from pasture and soil is low. It can cause a number of clinical signs including loss of appetite, decreased growth rates, weight loss, watery ocular discharge and anaemia.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD SE B12 is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to an ML drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains and wool growth can be significantly reduced. CYDECTIN EWEGUARD SE B12 also controls itch mite and nasal bot.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD SE B12 prevents reinfection with barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) for not less than 21 days, with Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta for up to 21 days and Trichostrongylus colubriformis and Cooperia curticei for not less than 7 days. Persistent activity is important when there is significant pasture contamination, as it can delay the need for subsequent drenching.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD SE B12 has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended, and is readily accepted by sheep. It can be safely used concurrently with other treatments including mineral supplements (not selenium) and fluke treatments.
