Oral Drench for Sheep
Contains 1 mg moxidectin/mL
For Treatment and Control of Infections Due to Internal Parasites of Sheep.
Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: CYDECTIN Oral Drench for Sheep is a ready-to-use solution containing 0.1% moxidectin. Moxidectin is an endectocide in the milbemycin chemical class which shares the distinctive mode of action characteristic of macrocyclic lactones. Moxidectin acts by interfering with chloride channel-mediated neurotransmission in the parasite. This results in paralysis and elimination of the parasite.
INDICATIONS: CYDECTIN Oral Drench for Sheep, when administered at the recommended dose level of 0.2 mg moxidectin/2.2 lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight, is effective in the treatment and control of adult and larval (L4) stages of the following internal parasites of sheep:
Haemonchus contortus - Adult and L4
Teladorsagia circumcincta - Adult and L4
Teladorsagia trifurcata - Adult and L4
Trichostrongylus axei - Adult and L4
Trichostrongylus colubriformis - Adult and L4
Trichostrongylus vitrinus - Adult and L4
Cooperia curticei - Adult and L4
Cooperia oncophora - Adult and L4
Oesophagostomum columbianum - Adult and L4
Oesophagostomum venulosum - Adult and L4
Nematodirus battus - Adult and L4
Nematodirus filicollis - Adult and L4
Nematodirus spathiger - Adult and L4
ADMINISTRATION: CYDECTIN Oral Drench is ready-to-use. Administer 1 mL per 11 lb (1 mL per 5 kg) body weight into the mouth of the sheep, using any standard drenching equipment. Check dose rates and equipment before drenching. Do not overdose. Do not mix with any other products before administration. Avoid contaminating the drench solution.
DOSAGE: The recommended rate of administration for CYDECTIN Oral Drench for Sheep is 1 mL per 11 lb (5 kg) body weight to provide 0.2 mg moxidectin/2.2 lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight. The table below will assist in the calculation of the appropriate volume of drench in 1.0 mL increments and it must be administered based on the weight of animal being treated.
Do not underdose. Ensure each animal receives a complete dose based on a current body weight. Underdosing may result in ineffective treatment, and encourage the development of parasite resistance.
HUMAN WARNINGS: Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. To obtain a copy of the safety data sheet (SDS) which provides more detailed occupational safety information or to report adverse reactions attributable to exposure to this product, call 1-800-422-9874.
RESIDUE WARNINGS: Sheep must not be slaughtered for human consumption within 7 days of treatment. Because a withholding time in milk has not been established for this product, do not use in female sheep providing milk for human consumption.
ENVIRONMENTAL WARNINGS: Studies indicate that when moxidectin comes in contact with the soil, it readily and tightly binds to the soil and becomes inactive. Free moxidectin may adversely affect fish and certain aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate water by direct application or by improper disposal of drug containers.
ANIMAL SAFETY WARNINGS: CYDECTIN Oral Drench for Sheep has been formulated specifically for oral use in sheep and should not be given by any other route of administration. Do not use in sick, debilitated, or underweight animals. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.
• Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer, and has been reported for most classes of dewormers.
• Treatment with a dewormer used in conjunction with parasite management practices appropriate to the geographic area and the animal(s) to be treated may slow the development of parasite resistance.
• Fecal examinations or other diagnostic tests and parasite management history should be used to determine if the product is appropriate for the herd/flock, prior to the use of any dewormer. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored (for example, with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test or another appropriate method).
• A decrease in a drug’s effectiveness over time as calculated by fecal egg count reduction tests may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. Your parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.
• Macrocyclic lactones provide prolonged drug exposure that may increase selection pressure for resistant parasites. This effect may be more pronounced in extended-release formulations.
ANIMAL SAFETY: A well-controlled U.S. study has demonstrated an adequate margin of safety to allow treatment of sheep four months of age and older with Cydectin Oral Drench. In this study no signs of toxicity were seen in sheep given up to 5 times the recommended dose. Reproductive safety studies evaluating the use of Cydectin Oral Drench in breeding ewes and rams have not been conducted in the U.S.
STORAGE: Store product at or below 77°F (25°C). Protect from light.
DISPOSAL: Do not contaminate water by direct application or by improper disposal of drug containers. Dispose of containers in an approved landfill or by incineration.

GENERAL INFORMATION: This product has been shown to be effective for the vaccination of healthy horses, cattle, sheep, goats, and swine against tetanus. This product was licensed prior to the requirement to establish a minimum age for use. The duration of immunity is unknown. For more information regarding efficacy and safety data, see productdata.aphis.usda.gov.
Safety in pregnant animals is unknown.
Tetanus Toxoid is prepared by detoxifying tetanus toxin in such a manner as to allow the antigenic properties to remain intact. Product is purified, concentrated and adjuvanted to provide a low dose effective immunizing agent.
Each serial is tested for purity, safety, and potency in accordance with USDA requirements.
Tetanus is caused by a neurotoxin produced by growth of Clostridium tetani, an anaerobic (lives without air) micro-organism, in necrotic tissue. Affected animals become stiff, have difficulty swallowing, and have an increased pulse rate. Breathing is labored. Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw.
Spasmodic contractions of the muscular system occur, such as contracting muscles of the jaw. Thus, the term “lockjaw” is often used. Legs and tail are often stiff with abdominal muscles contracted. Tetanus stricken animals may be unusually sensitive to light and heat. Temperature of the animal generally remains normal, elevating only shortly before death.
Protective antibody levels usually occur about two weeks after the second injection of the primary immunization series. In contrast, administration of Tetanus Antitoxin is recommended for immediate, emergency, passive treatment of exposed animals with unknown vaccination history or with signs of tetanus infection.
DIRECTIONS: Do not vaccinate within 21 days before slaughter. Store at 2-8° C. Do not freeze. Do not mix with other products. Shake well before use. Use entire contents when first opened.
PRECAUTIONS: A transitory local reaction may occur at injection site. Anaphylactoid reaction may occur following administration of products of this nature. If noted, administer adrenalin or equivalent. In case of human exposure, consult a physician.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION: For primary immunization, two doses should be administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly approximately 30 days apart. Use intramuscularly for horses as local reactions are more likely to occur if injected subcutaneously.
Horses: 1 ml IM
Cattle: 1 ml SC or IM
Sheep, Goats, Swine: 0.5 ml SC or IM
Historically, annual single dose revaccination has been recommended. Contact veterinarian for advice.
OTHER INFORMATION: Contains thimerosal and formalin as preservatives. Tetanus Toxoid Concentrate is available in single dose size packaged 10 vials to the carton, and in 10 dose vials.
