Safety Warning: Cydectin Oral Drench for Sheep has been formulated specifically for oral use in sheep and should not be given by any other route of administration. A well-controlled U.S. study has demonstrated an adequate margin of safety to allow treatment of sheep four months of age and older with Cydectin Oral Drench. In this study no signs of toxicity were seen in sheep given up to 5 times the recommended dose. Reproductive safety studies evaluating the use of Cydectin Oral Drench in breeding ewes and rams have not been conducted in the United States.

Residue Warning: Sheep must not be slaughtered for human consumption within 7 days of treatment. Because a withholding time in milk has not been established for this product, do not use in female sheep providing milk for human consumption.
