For the treatment and control of roundworms, nasal bot and itchmite in sheep. For protection against severe challenge by Haemonchus contortus (barber’s pole worm) for up to 4 months.
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 LONG ACTING 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 reduced significantly. CYDECTIN LONG ACTING also controls itch mite and nasal bots.
CYDECTIN LONG ACTING controls barber’s pole worm and small brown stomach worm for at least 91 days, and black scour worm for up to 49 days. It also protects against severe challenge from barber’s pole worm for up to 4 months. Good worm control means cleaner sheep, less pasture contamination and increased productivity
CYDECTIN LONG ACTING’s long duration of activity can mean less drenching and may help reduce the development of resistance.
CYDECTIN LONG ACTING is delivered by a simple, subcutaneous injection.
CYDECTIN LONG ACTING has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended.
