Product Description

Contains Moxidectin.

For the prevention and treatment of psoroptic mange (scab) in sheep.

For the treatment and control of infections caused by moxidectin sensitive strains of the following endoparasites and ectoparasites:

Gastro-intestinal nematodes:

  • Haemonchus contortus
  • Ostertagia (Teladorsagia) circumcincta (including inhibited larvae)
  • Trichostrongylus axei (adults)
  • Trichostrongylus colubriformis (adults and L3)
  • Nematodirus spathiger (adults)
  • Cooperia curticei (adults)
  • Cooperia punctata (adults)
  • Gaigeria pachyscelis (L3)
  • Oesophagostomum columbianum (L3)
  • Chabertia ovina (adults)

Respiratory tract nematode:

  • Dictyocaulus filaria Larvae of diptera:
  • Oestrus ovis (L1, L2, L3)

CYDECTIN has a persistent effect in preventing infection or reinfection for:

  • at least 4 weeks against Psoroptes ovis
  • 5 weeks against Ostertagia circumcincta and Haemonchus contortus
  • 4 weeks against Gaigeria pachyscelis and Oesophagostomum columbianum
  • 2 weeks against Trichostrongylus colubriformis.

Trials have shown that CYDECTIN may be effective against strains of Haemonchus contortus resistant to benzimidazoles, ivermectin and doramectin.

Not to be used in animals that have any history of previous vaccination against footrot.


Dosage & Administration


  • 0.1 ml per 5 kg live bodyweight to give 0.2 mg moxidectin/kg live bodyweight.


  • Inject subcutaneously (under the skin) in the neck.
  • Use sterile 18 gauge needles or smaller, of half inch (1.5 cm) length.
  • Ensure that the needle is inserted carefully under the skin using aseptic precautions and that product does not leak from the injection site. Be certain that the needle has penetrated the skin before delivering the dose.
  • To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
  • If animals are to be treated collectively rather than individually, they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in order to avoid under or over dosing.
  • DO NOT UNDERDOSE. As with any scab treatment, underdosing can cause suppression and spread of the disease.
  • When treating groups of animals, use only the CYDECTIN Automatic Injector and vented draw-off system.
  • For treatment of individual sheep, a syringe not exceeding 2.5 ml and calibrated in increments of 0.1 ml should be used.
  • Syringes must be filled from the vial through a dry, sterile draw-off needle that has been placed in the vial stopper. Vial stoppers must not be broached more than 10 times.
  • For routine prevention of sheep scab, all sheep in the flock must be injected once.
  • The curative treatment of scab requires two injections 10 days apart. The two injections must be given on different sides of the neck.


Meat and offal: 70 days

Milk: Not for use in sheep producing milk for human consumption or industrial purposes, including the dry period.
