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.
