PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CYDECTIN Injectable Solution is a ready-to-use, sterile solution containing 1% moxidectin. Moxidectin is an endectocide in the milbemycin chemical class which shares the distinctive mode of action characteristic of macrocyclic lactones. CYDECTIN Injectable is specially formulated to allow moxidectin to be absorbed from the site of injection and distributed internally to the areas of the body affected by endo- and/or ectoparasitism. Moxidectin binds selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which are critical to the function of invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This interferes with neurotransmission resulting in paralysis and elimination of the parasite.

INDICATIONS

CYDECTIN Injectable, when administered at the recommended dose level of 0.2 mg/2.2 lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight, is effective in the treatment and control of the following internal and external parasites of cattle:

Persistent Activity: CYDECTIN Injectable has been proven to effectively protect cattle from reinfection with Dictyocaulus viviparus and Oesophagostomum radiatum for 42 days after treatment, Haemonchus placei for 35 days after treatment, and Ostertagia ostertagi and Trichostrongylus axei for 14 days after treatment.

Management Considerations for External Parasites: For most effective external parasite control, CYDECTIN Injectable should be administered to all cattle in the herd. Cattle entering the herd following this administration should be treated prior to introduction. Consult your veterinarian or a livestock entomologist for the most appropriate time to administer CYDECTIN Injectable in your location to effectively control external parasites.

DOSAGE

The recommended rate of administration for CYDECTIN Injectable is 1 mL for each 110 lb (50 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 injectable which must be administered based on the weight of animal being treated. Be careful not to overdose animals; estimate animal’s body weight as closely as possible or weigh animals individually.
