For most effective external parasite control, CYDECTIN Pour-On should be applied 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 apply CYDECTIN Pour-On in your location to effectively control horn flies and external parasites. CYDECTIN Pour-On provides seven days of persistent activity against horn flies. For optimal control of horn flies, the product should be used as part of an integrated control program utilizing other methods to provide extended control.
CYDECTIN Pour-On has been proven to effectively control infections and protect from reinfection with Haemonchus placei for 14 days after treatment, Oesophagostomum radiatum and Ostertagia ostertagi for 28 days after treatment, and Dictyocaulus viviparus for 42 days after treatment. Efficacy below 90% was observed in some Ostertagia ostertagi persistent activity studies at 21 and 28 days posttreatment.
Tolerance and toxicity studies have demonstrated an adequate margin of safety to allow treatment of cattle of all ages with CYDECTIN Pour-On. No toxic signs were seen in cattle given up to 25 times the recommended dose level. Newborn calves similarly showed no toxic signs when treated with up to three times the recommended dose level within 12 hours of birth and nursing from cows concurrently treated with the recommended dose level of CYDECTIN Pour-On. In breeding animals (bulls and cows in estrous and during early, mid and late pregnancy), treatment with three times the recommended dose level had no effect on breeding performance.
