CYDECTIN 0.1% Oral Drench for Sheep is indicated for the treatment and prevention of infections caused by:
Mature (adult) and immature (L4) gastro-intestinal nematodes (gut & stomach worms) and adult respiratory tract nematode (lung worms).
CYDECTIN 0.1% Oral Drench for Sheep has a persistent effect in preventing reinfection for four - five weeks and therefore an eight week dosing interval is possible.
Dosage and administration -
CYDECTIN should be given as a single oral drench of 1 ml/5 kg live bodyweight, equivalent to 200 µg moxidectin/kg live bodyweight using the CYDECTIN drench gun or any standard drenching equipment.
To ensure a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing should be checked. If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under- or overdosing. Do not mix with other products.
Dosing Guidelines -
CYDECTIN 0.1% Oral Drench for Sheep gives optimal pasture protection against stomach worms Ostertagia sp and Haemonchus sp, with an 8 week dosing interval–i.e. 5 week persistent activity, plus a 3 week interval from any re-infection to the presence of eggs in the dung.
Treat at or around lambing to minimise the "spring rise", and pre-tupping, when rams should be treated also.
After treatment, CYDECTIN 0.1% Oral Drench for Sheep continues to kill stomach worms picked up by the ewe for 5 weeks, thus substantially reducing pasture contamination. This "vacuum-cleaning" effect greatly reduces the worm challenge to lambs grazing the same pasture.
The first dose should be given at around 4-6 weeks of age, with a second dose, if required 8 weeks later. Additional treatment may be required where there is a Nematodirus challenge.
Treat lambs when a challenge is expected. CYDECTIN 0.1% Oral Drench for Sheep effectively controls Nematodirus at the time of dosing, but as with other available wormers does not offer a persistent effect against Nematodirus.
Moxidectin has been shown to be safe for use in pregnant, lactating and breeding animals.
