WHY CHOOSE CYDECTIN ORAL SHEEP DRENCH?

  1. Contains moxidectin –  Moxidectin is the most potent member of the ML family of drenches, meaning it can kill worms resistant to ivermectin and abamectin.
  2. Broad spectrum parasite control –  Cydectin Oral is highly effective against all major internal parasites that are susceptible to a ML drench, including gastrointestinal roundworms and large lungworm. These worms reduce overall productivity, especially in young animals. Weight gains can be reduced and wool growth can be affected significantly. Cydectin Oral also controls itch mite.
  3. Persistent activity – Cydectin Oral prevents reinfection with Ostertagia spp and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) for at least 14 days. It prevents pasture contamination by Ostertagia spp eggs for at least 35 days and barber’s pole worm (Haemonchus contortus) eggs for at least 30 days. Persistent activity is important when there is significant pasture contamination, as it can delay the need for subsequent drenching. Preventing pasture contamination by eggs can also delay the need for subsequent drenching.
  4. Unselenised – Excess selenium can cause toxicity issues in sheep. Where sheep are receiving sufficient amounts of selenium use an un-selenised drench. If selenium supplementation via a drench is required, Cydectin Se Oral Drench is recommended.
  5. Safety –  Cydectin Oral has a wide margin of safety when used as recommended, and is readily accepted by sheep. It can be safely used concurrently with other treatments including mineral supplements, fluke treatments and vaccines.

Cydectin Oral Drench for Sheep Label

ADMINISTRATION:

  • Cydectin Oral is applied using standard drenching equipment.
  • Dose the mob according to the heaviest animal by bodyweight in the group (ewes, rams, lambs).
  • A representative sample of animals should be weighed before treatment.
  • Do not underdose.
  • Do not drench in marking cradles due to increased risk of aspiration into the lungs.
  • Check accuracy of drenching equipment before and during use
  • Where there is a large variation in size within the group, dose rate should be based on the label directions for each weight range.
  • Drafting into two or more lines may be appropriate, to avoid excessive overdosing.

WHEN TO USE CYDECTIN ORAL SHEEP DRENCH:

  1. On high risk pastures with moderate to high larval contamination – Use Cydectin Oral when sheep are on or will be moved to high risk pastures which have moderate to high contamination with larval parasites.
  2. Prelambing – Before lambing ewes lose some of their natural resistance to worm infections. The persistent activity of Cydectin Oral allows good worm control, with minimum need to handle the animals during this important time.
  3. 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 Oral is the ideal 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.
  4. In combination with other drenches – Drenching with a combination of actives from different drench families provides a potent tool to fight resistance in worms. Producers wanting an effective triple combination could use an ML such as Cydectin Oral then follow this immediately with a dose of Duocare® plus Selenium (mixing of these products prior to application should only be done under the supervision of a veterinarian). When a combination is needed, Cydectin LV is another option as it can be mixed with a naphthalophos drench.
  5. Quarantine –  The high potency necessary for successful quarantine treatments is best achieved by employing drenches from at least three, but preferably four families (white, clear, ML and naphthalophos) at the same time. This can be achieved by dosing sheep with products containing the right combination of actives (mixing of products prior to application should only be done under veterinary supervision unless a label provides mixing instructions). Cydectin Oral can provide the ML component of a quarantine treatment and can easily be used in conjunction with Virbac Duocare plus Selenium (white and clear) to deliver three dench families. It can also be used in conjunction with a Virbac Combat/Duocare LV plus selenium mixture to provide four drench families.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 will 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.
