Cydectin LA - Long Acting Injection For Sheep (Moxidectin) CYDECTIN-LA-SHEEP Virbac

Description

Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Sheep

Active Ingredient: Moxidectin @ 20g/L

Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Sheep is for the treatment and control of roundworms, nasal bot and itch mite in sheep.

Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Sheep provides protection against severe challenge by Haemonchus contortus (barber’s pole worm) for up to 4 months

Why Choose Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Sheep?

  • Control of internal parasites – Moxidectin is the most potent member of the macrocyclic lactone (ML) family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.
  • Broad spectrum parasite control – Cydectin Long Acting is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to an ML drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains and wool growth can be reduced significantly. Cydectin Long Acting also controls itch mite and nasal bots.
  • Longer acting worm control – Cydectin Long Acting controls barber’s pole worm and small brown stomach worm for at least 91 days, and black scour worm for up to 49 days. It also protects against severe challenge from barber’s pole worm for up to 4 months. Good worm control means cleaner sheep, less pasture contamination and increased productivity  
  • Less drenching – Cydectin Long Acting’s long duration of activity can mean less drenching and may help reduce the development of resistance.
  • Ease of application – Cydectin Long Acting is delivered by a simple subcutaneous injection.
  • Safety – Cydectin Long Acting has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended.

 When to Use Cydectin Long Acting Injection for Sheep?

  • Pre-lambing drench – Cydectin Long Acting will control worms and reduce egg output from ewes around lambing time. Before and just after lambing the ewe’s natural immunity to worms weakens, and untreated ewes can become a significant source of pasture contamination. Cydectin Long Acting administered to ewes pre-lambing can mean cleaner pastures and reduced exposure of lambs to internal parasites.
  • High pasture contamination – Cydectin Long Acting is beneficial for use when susceptible sheep (eg weaners) are exposed to sustained high pasture contamination and worm challenge over a long period of time. Using Cydectin Long Acting can remove the need for frequent drenching. Frequent monitoring is recommended in situations of high worm challenge.
  • Weaner/prime lamb drench – Weaners and prime lambs are highly susceptible to worms. Cydectin Long Acting is an excellent drench for such high value stock. It offers outstanding control and long term protection to maximise production. Cydectin Long Acting can be used in a number of prime lamb production systems* These include:
    i. Autumn lambs produced for the heavy end of the domestic market. These lambs usually require approximately 170 to 190 days from lambing to sale
    ii. Winter tail end lambs usually carried to the following autumn
    iii. Late winter/spring lambs that are maintained over the summer and finished late autumn and early winter of the following year
  • Barber’s pole worm control – When used as part of a worm control program a single dose of Cydectin Long Acting can provide excellent long term protection throughout the barber’s pole worm season. Egg output is reduced and pastures can be cleaner for longer.
  • Summer drenching – A single treatment with Cydectin Long Acting when pastures dry off can eliminate the need for a second summer drench.
  • When rotating to an ML drench – It is important to use effective drenches on your property. If ML drenches still give effective control on your property and you have high risk pastures, then Cydectin Long Acting is a valuable drench to use as the ML drench in your rotation. Being a highly potent chemical it gives effective control of susceptible worms and may help delay resistance compared with a less potent chemical.
  • Concurrent treatments – Cydectin Long Acting is safe to use at the same time as other treatments including mineral supplements and vaccines. Inject other products on the opposite side of the neck.
  • Drench resistance testing – It is essential to understand the level of resistance to the various drench families on a particular property. Faecal egg count reduction tests (FECRTs) provide objective measurements of which drenches are working and which fall below the level of efficacy required for good worm control (i.e. 95% efficacy). FECRTs should be conducted every two to three years to monitor any changes in resistance levels.
  • Worm testing – Worm egg counts provide valuable information to optimise drench timing. Egg counts will show if a drench is not required because of low worm numbers, but can also reveal production limiting worm infections before clinical signs such as scouring or wasting are evident. A larval differentiation assay provides identification of the worm species present so that the optimal type of drench can be selected.
