Quantity30ml Bottle
IndicationReduction of proteinuria in cats with chronic kidney disease.
ActionsPharmacology Telmisartan is an orally active and specific angiotensin II receptor (type AT1) antagonist which causes a dose dependent decrease in mean arterial blood pressure. The receptor binding is long lasting. Stimulation of the AT1 receptor is responsible for most of the pathological effects in the kidney and other organs associated with angiontensin II, such as vasoconstriction, glomerular hypertension, retention of sodium and water, increased aldosterone synthesis and organ remodelling. By selectively binding only to the AT1 receptor, the beneficial effects associated with stimulation of the AT2 receptor such as vasodilation, natriuresis and inhibition of inappropriate cell growth are not suppressed. As a result, it has been suggested that telmisartan may have renoprotective effects in cats with naturally occurring CKD, although improved survival times in treated cats have not yet been demonstrated.Pharmacokinetics Following oral administration, telmisartan is rapidly absorbed, achieving maximum plasma concentration after 0.5 hours. Telmisartan is highly lipophilic, which facilitates distribution into tissue. Food consumption does not affect absorption of telmisartan. Telmisartan is effectively glucuronidated in the cat. After oral administration, telmisartan is almost exclusively excreted with faeces, mainly as the unchanged compound.
PrecautionsThe safety of telmisartan has not been established in breeding, pregnant or lactating cats or in cats under 6 months of age.May be harmful if swallowed.
