Zipyran Plus Sabor PROPERTIES
Praziquantel is an anthelmintic effective against a number of cestodes. It causes severe damage to the parasite integument, making it more permeable to the excessive loss of glucose and facilitating the attack of the proteolytic enzymes. At the same time, it acts on the motility and the “anchoring” organs of the cestode, inducing a spastic paralysis.The active metabolites of Febantel act via inhibition of tubulin within the parasite, thus resulting in disruption of structures vital to the normal functioning of the helminth. Glucose uptake, in particular is affected, leading to a depletion in cell ATP. The parasite dies upon exhaustion of its energy reserves.Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic agonist, inducing a spastic paralysis of the nematodes and thereby allowing removal from the gastro- intestinal (GI) system by peristalsis.
Zipyran Plus Sabor CONTRAINDICATIONS
Do not administer to extremely debilitated animals.
