WHY CHOOSE CYDECTIN LONG ACTING INJECTION FOR SHEEP?

  • Control of internal parasites

    Moxidectin is the most potent member of the macrocyclic lactone (ML) family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.

  • Broad spectrum parasite control

    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.

  • Longer acting worm control

    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

  • Less drenching

    CYDECTIN LONG ACTING’s long duration of activity can mean less drenching and may help reduce the development of resistance.

  • Ease of application

    CYDECTIN LONG ACTING is delivered by a simple, subcutaneous injection.

  • Safety

    CYDECTIN LONG ACTING has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended.
