Manufacturer: Boehringer

Moxidectin

(Pour-On for Beef and Dairy Cattle)

DIN 02228386

Veterinary Use Only

(Each mL contains 5 mg of moxidectin)

For the treatment of infections and infestations due to internal and external parasites in cattle, including lactating dairy cows.

External Use Only

Introduction

CYDECTIN Pour-On contains moxidectin, a second generation endectocide of the milbemycin class of compounds. It is highly effective when administered at a dosage of 0.5 mg/kg body weight against a broad range of economically important endoparasites and ectoparasites that infect beef and dairy cattle, including lactating dairy cows.

Mode of action studies indicate that CYDECTIN eliminates parasites by causing paralysis through interfering with neurotransmission of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-gated or glutamate-gated chloride channels.

Composition

CYDECTIN Pour-On comes ready to use as a violet solution containing 5 mg/mL (0.5% w/v) moxidectin.

Cydectin (Pour-On for Beef and Dairy Cattle) Indications
