QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION

Each tablet contains: Active Substances: Pyrantel Emollate 230.0 mg Praziquantel 20.0 mg

 

PROPERTIES

The medicinal product is an anthelmintic intended to combat nematodes and cestodes containing active substances the praziquantel (a derivative of the pyrazinoisoquinolone) and the derivative of tetrahydropyrimidine pyrante (as the encasing salt).

In this fixed combination praziquantel acts against the cestodes and its spectrum of action covers all relevant cat species of the cat, namely species of Taenia, Joyeuxiella spp., Dipylidium caninum, Mesocestoides spp., Echinococcus granulosus and Echinococcus multilocularis. Praziquantel acts against all stages of these parasites at cat's gut level.

Praziquantel is absorbed, very rapidly, through the surface of the parasite, distributing uniform manner therein. The occurrence of severe lesions at the integument of the parasite is very rapid, both in vitro and in vivo, resulting in contraction and paralysis of the parasites. The base for the rapid triggering of action lies, above all, in the praziquantel-induced of the membrane permeability of the parasite to Ca ++, which results in metabolic dysregulation of the parasite.

Pirantel is the specific component against nematodes and shows good efficacy against all relevant cat nematodes, in particular Toxocara cati (syn. mystax), Toxascaris leonina and Ancylostoma spp. Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic agonist with nicotine-like action and causes spastic paralysis of the nematodes through a depolarizing neuromuscular block.

 

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Route of administration: oral. The recommended dose is a single administration of 5 mg praziquantel and 57.5 mg pirantel embenus per kg body weight (equivalent to 1 tablet per 4 kg body weight).

The tablets may be administered directly or mixed with food. No dietary measures are required.
