How does Centragard for Cats work?
The muscle and nerve cells of invertebrates contain glutamate gated chloride channels, which eprinomectin works by binding to. This increases cell membrane permeability to these chloride ions, triggering muscle or nerve cell hyperpolarization and subsequent parasite paralysis, then death. While the mode of action of praziquantel is not fully understood, tapeworms treated with this ingredient experience paralysis of the muscles, along with rapid calcium ion influx and tegument disruption.
Eprinomectin (4 mg/ml) and Praziquantel (83 mg/ml) per applicator
