Questions and answers from customers

    Does Cydectin Platinum Pour-On for Cattle control lice? It's not listed on the drum!

  1. Q Does Cydectin Platinum Pour-On for Cattle control lice? It's not listed on the drum!
    Asked by Stu on August 8, 2022 2:41 pm
    Answered by the admin

    Cydectin Platinum Pour-On for Cattle is not registered for or has claims to control sucking biting lice as part of its registration, so it can't be recommended for that purpose.  This is to do with the registration the manufacturer submitted to the APVMA, as it only lists claims to control gastrointestinal parasites in beef and dairy cattle and no other external parasites. 

    Note though that Cydectin Platinum Pour-on and the original Cydectin Pour-on are both made from Moxidectin which is the ingredient that targets lice.  Platinum also includes levamisole to target resistant strains of internal worms.

Tips For Use

When to use Cydectin Platinum Pour-On:

Weaning and post-weaning:

  • Calves are more susceptible to nutritional and environmental stress around weaning.
  • Worm burdens can add to further potential reduced liveweight gain, leading to permanent under performance.
  • It is important to use a highly effective dual active drench in young cattle.

Pre-Joining:

  • Body condition plays an important role in conception rates.
  • Using Cydectin Platinum one month prior to joining can minimise effects of parasites on fertility.

Pre-Calving:

  • Controlling parasites prior to calving will optimise the health of the heifer or cow, may increase milk production and reduce pasture contamination.
  • Quarantine Drenching Introduced Cattle
    New animals moved onto the farm should be drenched in order to prevent contamination of your farm with resistant worms. Cydectin Platinum is an ideal product to include in any quarantine drench program.

Restraints:

  • Do not use in lactating cows or within 28 days before calving where milk may be used or processed for human consumption.
  • Retreatment Interval: Do not retreat animals for 20 days after last treatment.
  • Cydectin Platinum is contraindicated for use in calves less than 6 weeks old.

Precautions:

  • This product should not be used on animals which are severely stressed or in ill health.
  • Exercise care in handling weak, pregnant and young animals to avoid unnecessary stress.
  • Recommended dose rates should not be exceeded.
  • Doses of 3 or more times the recommended dose can cause symptoms of levamisole toxicity so estimate weights carefully.
  • Dehydrated animals may be more susceptible to toxicity.
  • Non Irritant: Cydectin Platinum does not cause irritation to the skin or hide damage when used as directed.

Effect On Dung Beetles:

  • When applied as directed, the level of moxidectin in the faeces of treated cattle is not likely to have any significant adverse effect on the following dung beetles: Onthophagus gazella, O. taurus, Euniticellus intermedius and E. fulvus.
  • Effects on other dung beetles have not been fully evaluated.

Safety Directions:

  • Poisonous if swallowed.
  • May irritate the nose and throat and will irritate the eyes and skin.
  • Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
  • Do not inhale.
  • Use in well-ventilated areas.
  • Wear rubber gloves.
  • Wash hands after use.

First Aid Instructions:

  • If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 13 11 26.
  • If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly.
