Albendazole is a broad spectrum benzimidazole parasiticide. After oral administration albendazole is rapidly absorbed and distributed in all organs and tissues, causing the lysis of the worms regardless of the species or categories of treated animals and regardless of the location of parasites (respiratory or digestive tract, liver or other tissues). It is active against roundworms (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leoninas, Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma caninum, Trichuris vulpis, Dirofilaria immitis) and tapeworms (Echinococcus spp., Taenia spp., Dipylidium caninum, Mesoscestoides spp.) in dogs and cats.
Avermectin B1 is macrocyclic lactone antibiotic, obtained by fermentation of Streptomyces avermitilis. The product acts on nervous system of roundworms and arthropods, causing their paralysis and death by stimulating the production of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) at synapses, which interrupts the transmission of nerve inflow. Since the avermectines have no action on acetylcholine production, the main chemical mediator of nervous inflow in mammals, the toxicity of the product is relatively low.
