Contains fenbendazole which is a member of the benzimidazole family of
anthelmintics and has been in veterinary use for a number of years. It acts against
parasites by disrupting the formation of microtubules by binding to tubulin in parasitic
intestinal cells hence preventing the absorption of glucose, and as a result the
parasites are gradually starved to death. Fenbendazole displays preference for
parasitic as opposed to mammalian tubulin; this appears to be due to the fact that
the formation of the parasitic tubulin-fenbendazole complex is more favourable
kinetically under physiological conditions than the mammalian complex.
Fenbendazole is only partly absorbed from the intestine and reaches maximum
plasma concentration in dogs 4 - 9 hours after oral administration.
Fenbendazole and its metabolites are distributed throughout the body but highest
concentrations are found in the liver.
Fenbendazole is metabolised mainly by enzymes of the cytochrome P-450 system in
the liver. The major oxidative metabolite is fenbendazole sulfoxide which is further
metabolised to fenbendazole sulfone.
Fenbendazole and its metabolites are predominantly excreted via the faeces.
