For the treatment and control of moxidectin sensitive gastrointestinal parasites (including benzimidazole and/or levamisole resistant strains), lungworm and itchmite of sheep.
For use in animals 60 kg liveweight and below in rotation with other fully effective drenches.
Moxidectin is the most potent member of the ML family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.
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.
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.
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.
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.
