Profender 15 mg / 3 mg Small Dogs (3kg) 24 tablets
Medicine for dogs with internal deworming action.
Teach is a veterinary medicine indicated forfor dogs suffering from, or at risk for, mixed parasitic infections caused by nematodes and tapeworms.
Teach contains 3 mg emodepside and 15 mg praziquantel.
Emodepside is a semi-synthetic compound belonging to the new chemical group of depsipeptides. It is active against nematodes (ascarids, hookworms and tricurids). In this medicine, emodepside is responsible for its effectiveness against Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina, Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala and Trichuris vulpis. It acts at the neuromuscular junction by stimulating the presynaptic receptors belonging to the family of secretin receptors, which results in the paralysis and death of the parasites.
Praziquantel is a derivative of pyrazinoisoquinoline effective against tapeworms, such as Dipylidium caninum, Taenia spp., Echinococcus multilocularis and Echinococcus granulosus. Praziquantel is rapidly adsorbed via the parasites' surface and acts mainly by altering the parasite's membrane permeability to calcium (Ca ++). This results in severe damage to the parasite's integument, contraction and paralysis, disruption of metabolism and ultimately death of the parasite.
