Colorless transparent solution
1 ml of the drug contains an active ingredient:
cabergoline – 50 μg.
Excipients: propylene glycol, dicaprilate/dicaprate.
Colorless transparent solution.
ATC-vet code: QG02CB – prolactin inhibitors.
Cabergoline, which is a component of the drug, is an ergoline derivative, acts as an agonist of dopamine receptors, which leads to inhibition of the secretion of prolactin by the pituitary gland, which is the main hormone of lactogenesis. A decrease in prolactin levels prevents lactation and provides the disappearance of clinical signs of false pregnancy (pseudopregnancy) in female dogs and cats.
After oral administration, the peak of inhibition of prolactin secretion is reached in 4-8 hours and lasts for several days, depending on the dose.
Cabergoline is excreted from the body in the form of metabolites, mainly with feces (60%) and, to a lesser extent, with urine (22%).
ANTILACT is used in female dogs and cats to terminate lactation according to clinical indications (for example, during the period of early weaning of puppies and kittens) and to terminate false pregnancy.
The drug is administered orally with food or directly to the root of the tongue at a dose of 0.1 ml (3 drops, equivalent to 5 μg cabergoline per kg b.w.) per 1 kg of animal body weight once a day for 4-6 days.
Do not use in case of individual sensitivity of the animal to cabergoline.
Do not use in pregnant female dogs and cats.
Do not give to lactating females who are nursing their offspring.
Do not administer to animals with renal or hepatic impairment.
Do not use in animals in a state of hypotension.
The drug is well-tolerated in recommended doses. In the first two days of using the drug, side effects are rarely possible in the form of vomiting, anorexia, lethargy, which stop on their own and do not require the drug discontinuation. In case of indomitable vomiting, the drug is cancelled.
Very rarely, in animals sensitive to ergoline derivatives, allergic reactions are possible in the form of itching, edema, dermatitis, and urticaria, which stop after discontinuation of the drug and the use of antihistamines.
Do not use with dopamine antagonists (for example, metoclopramide), as well as with drugs that have antihypertensive effects.
If one or more doses of the drug are missed, treatment should be resumed as soon as possible at the planned dosage and according to the treatment regimen.
