WHY CHOOSE CYDECTIN WEANERGUARD?

  • Contains moxidectin

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

  • Contains 6 in 1 vaccine

    CYDECTIN WEANERGUARD is a convenient combination of moxidectin and five clostridial disease and cheesy gland antigens. It is ideal at weaning when a drench and vaccine “booster” are needed at the same time, and particularly for lambs and lighter hoggets between 15 and 37 kg.

  • Broad spectrum parasite control

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

  • Persistent activity

    CYDECTIN WEANERGUARD prevents reinfection with barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) for not less than 21 days, with Ostertagia 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.

  • Unselenised

    Excess selenium can cause toxicity issues in sheep. Where sheep are receiving sufficient amounts of selenium, it may be better to use an unselenised drench. If selenium supplementation via a drench is required, CYDECTIN WEANERGUARD 6 in 1 vaccine and wormer with selenium and vitamin B12 can be recommended.

  • Safety

    CYDECTIN WEANERGUARD has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended, and is readily accepted by lambs and weaners. It can be safely used concurrently with other treatments including mineral supplements and fluke treatments.
