For the prevention of five clostridial diseases and cheesy gland, and the treatment and control of internal parasites, nasal bot and itchmite.
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 is a convenient combination of moxidectin and five clostridial disease and cheesy gland antigens. It is ideal for times when ewes and other sheep need a drench and vaccine at the same time.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to 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 also controls itch mite and nasal bot.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD 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.
Excess selenium can cause toxicity issues in sheep. Where sheep are receiving sufficient amounts of selenium use an unselenised drench. If selenium supplementation via a drench is required, CYDECTIN EWEGUARD 6 IN 1 vaccine and wormer with selenium and vitamin B12 is recommended.
CYDECTIN EWEGUARD 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 and fluke treatments.
