Cydectin Injection For Cattle delivers the trusted power of moxidectin, the most trusted, potent and persistent “mectin, in a water-based, non-sting formulation. Cydectin Injection For Cattle provides broad-spectrum control of internal and external parasites.
Why Choose Cydectin Injection for Cattle:
- Contains Moxidectin – Moxidectin is a potent member of the ML family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin, doramectin and eprinomectin.
- Cydectin is the best option for potency. The active used in Cydectin Injection (moxidectin) is the most potent product for controlling nematode parasites. Comparative efficacy trials worldwide have shown that moxidectin is consistently the superior active.+++
- Broad spectrum parasite control – Cydectin Injection is highly effective against all major parasites that are susceptible to an ML drench, including Ostertagia, lungworm (Dictyocaulus viviparus), barbers pole worm (Haemonchus placei), Nodule Worm (Oesophagostomum radiatum), stomach hairworm (Trichostrongylus axei), Hookworm (Bunostomum phlebotomum), adult thin necked intestinal worm (Nematodirus spp) and Cooperia.
- Persistent activity – Cydectin injection prevents reinfection with Ostertagia for at least 21 days. It prevents reinfection with Lungworm (Dictyocaulus viviparus) for at least 35 days, and it prevents the reinfection of Barbers Pole Worm (Haemonchus placei) and Stomach Hair Worm (Trichostrongylus axei) for up to 14 days. Persistent activity can be used to clean up contaminated pastures and keep your cattle cleaner for longer, leading to greater productivity.
- Non-Sting Formulation – Cydectin injection is a water-based, non-sting formulation.
- Dung Beetles – Dung beetles provide several important functions, from parasite suppression, nutrient cycling and secondary seed dispersal. Many of these functions provide valuable services such as biological pest control and soil fertilisation.++
