Composition

1 ml of the product contains APIs:

selamectin — 120 mg;

Clinical pharmacology

Selamectin is semisynthetic ivermectin. Mode of action centers around activity changes of synaptic membranes’ chlorous meatus in nervous and muscular systems of most ectoparasites. Binding with specific receptors, it increases synaptic membranes’ permeability for chlor’s ions, causing blocking of electric activity of parasites’ nervous and muscle cells and, as a consequence, their paralysis and death. In mammals such receptors located only in central nervous system. Inasmuch as selamectin can penetrate through hematoencephalic barrier, it has high margin of safety and is safe for cats in recommended doses.

Selamectin provides wide range of systemic nematocidal, insecticidal and acaricidal actions and has larvicidal and ovocidal properties. The product is fast and fully absorbed into blood stream. Therapeutic concentrations of selamectin in blood are held at great length, providing parasites’ death and protection from reinvasion during a month.

Fipronil affects central nervous system of ectoparasites, having no impact on central nervous system of animals. Fipronil’s mode of action of invertebratas centers around the product’s suppression of chlor’s ions passing through GABA-dependent chlorous meatus, interrupting activity of nervous system Inasmuch as fipronil systematically blocks nervous system, nervous superexcitation and ectoparasites’ death are found.

After skin product application, fipronil is absorbed into skin and accumulated in epidermis, oil glands, hair follicle and gradually released, providing insectoacaricide action. Fipronil provides long action. After local application the product is extended over the whole surface of animal’s body during 24 hours.
