Zoetis Startect 15Ltrs
Startect is an effective short-acting oral sheep drench that manages resistance better to optimise productivity.1-4,13
The first time a new class of drench has been released in combination to protect itself against resistance from its beginning.1
We call this built-in protection against resistance
- Pro-Active Dual Drench Technology.
- Deliberately and thoughtfully designed combination.1
- Contains a completely new active, derquantel (10 mg/mL) that has no known resistance.
- The first active from the entirely new SI (spiroindole) class with a completely different mode of action.1
- Purposely combined with abamectin (1 mg/mL).
- Designed for greater sustainability with each active protecting the other against resistance.9
- When used routinely Startect also extends the useful life of older more fragile drenches.6,7
- Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) of 28 days gives producers trading flexibility and speed to market.8
Derquantel has a totally different mode of action to all other existing drenches.12
Blocks the nerve signals to the worm's muscles paralysing the worms body, resulting in death. The worm is then passed out of the sheep.
Abamectin kills worms in a totally different way. It paralysis the worm's throat so it can't eat and the worm dies. It is then passed out of the sheep.
Startect combines derquantel with abamectin to effectively kill worms using two modes of action, giving you a new level of confidence now and in the future
