    Lungworm

    • Dictyocaulus ekerti (viviparus)
  • Rainfast

    The efficacy of CYDECTIN Pour-On is not adversely affected if applied when the hide is wet, or if rain occurs shortly after application. However treatment of animals under these circumstances is not recommended practice.

    Persistent activity

    CYDECTIN Pour-On, following a single application at the recommended dose rate, prevents reinfection with the following parasite species:

    Non-irritant

    CYDECTIN Pour-On does not cause irritation to the skin or damage to the hide when used as directed.

    Ease of Use

    CYDECTIN Pour-On comes ready to use in applicator bottles, back packs or drums. A number of applicators have been tested with CYDECTIN Pour-On and several have proved suitable.

    IMPROVED MILK PRODUCTION

    The use of CYDECTIN Pour-On improves milk production in lactating dairy cows and increases gains in growing beef and dairy cattle exposed to parasite challenge.

    A series of trials1 was carried out in New Zealand and Australia to examine the effects of CYDECTIN Pour-On on milk production at different treatment times. Regardless of the stage of lactation, treatment of dairy cows gave a significant increase. Treated cows were better able to maintain body weight, and showed better recovery in milk production after a drought. The benefits occurred despite heavy rainfall in one of the trials and were observed even when nematode challenge was low.

    Broad Spectrum

    CYDECTIN Pour-On is efficacious against roundworms, lungworm, lice and mites which infect cattle, and lungworm and roundworms of deer.

    Safety to Target Animals

    CYDECTIN Pour-On has a wide margin of safety when used at the recommended dose rate in all ages and breeds of cattle including pregnant cows and breeding bulls.

    Effect on Dung Beetles

    When applied as directed, the levels of moxidectin in the faeces of treated animals will not have any significant adverse effect on dung beetles.

    Concurrent Use

    CYDECTIN Pour-On is safe to use concurrently with other treatments in cattle including mineral supplements, fluke treatments and vaccines. It should not be applied at the same time as any other pour-on product.

  • CYDECTIN Pour-On is available in 500mL easy-dose containers, 2L and 5L backpacks and 15L containers.

  • By law the user must take due care, obtaining expert advice when necessary, to avoid unnecessary pain and distress when using the product other than as directed on the label.

    CYDECTIN Pour-On should be applied along the top of the back from the withers to the base of the tail. Weigh animals before dosing, choose dose according to the weight of the heaviest animals. Do not underdose. Where there is a large variation in size within the group, draft into two or more lines based on body weight, to avoid excessive overdosing. Check accuracy of dose delivery of the applicator regularly.

    Volume to Use:

    1 mL per 10 kg liveweight. This will administer the correct dose of 0.5 mg moxidectin/kg liveweight.
