  • Description
  • A safe drug against parasitic diseases of large cattle, small cattle and horses that has an increased stability and bioavailability due to the original formulation and  particle micronization technology.

    Appearance: a milky white to light gray suspension. During storage, stratification may occur, which disappears with stirring.

    Alvet suspension is available in 100 ml and 1000 ml polymer bottles.

  • Pharmacological properties

    Alvet suspension has a wide range of anthelminthic activity, it is very effective against imago and larva forms of nematodes and trematodes, as well as imago forms of cestodes. It also successfully kills helminth eggs, thus decreasing contamination of pasture fields. The drug’s mechanism of action is as follows: albendazole, the active substance of this drug, disrupts the glucose transport and microtubule function and decreases the activity of fumarate reducing enzyme in helminths, which leads to their death. After the drug was administered orally, albendazole quickly absorbs into the gastrointestinal tract and penetrates into organs and tissues; it leaves the body mostly with urine and feces.
