WHAT IS CYDECTIN® ORAL?

  • Contains moxidectin – the most potent ML
  • Broad spectrum control
  • 14 days persistent activity against barber’s pole worm and small brown stomach worm
  • Ideal for highly contaminated pastures

RECOMMENDED FOR

For use in animals 60 kg liveweight and below in rotation with other fully effective drenches.

WHY CHOOSE CYDECTIN ORAL?

  • Contains moxidectin

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

  • Broad spectrum parasite control

    CYDECTIN ORAL is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to a ML drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains can be reduced and wool growth can be affected significantly. CYDECTIN ORAL also controls itch mite.

  • Persistent activity

    CYDECTIN ORAL prevents reinfection with Ostertagia spp and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) for at least 14 days. It prevents pasture contamination by Ostertagia spp eggs for at least 35 days and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) eggs for at least 30 days. Persistent activity is important when there is significant pasture contamination, as it can delay the need for subsequent drenching. Preventing pasture contamination by eggs can also delay the need for subsequent drenching.

  • Unselenised

    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 Se Oral Drench is recommended.

  • Safety

    CYDECTIN ORAL 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, fluke treatments and vaccines.
