  • Use only as directed.

    • Administration: Cydectin Injectable can be administered by subcutaneous injection in cattle and intramuscular injection in ostriches only. It can however be injected by the subcutaneous or intramuscular routes in sheep. The remedy may be administered with any standard automatic or single dose equipment. Use aseptic technique and sterile equipment.

    • Sheep: Inject under loose skin behind the shoulder, under the foreleg or on the inside of the thigh or intramuscularly in the leg. Ensure that the needle is carefully inserted and that the remedy does not leak from the injection site. In woollen sheep, be certain that the needle has penetrated the skin before delivering the dose. For the treatment of sheep scab outbreaks, two injections with an interval of seven days, is recommended.
