Megestrol acetate Drops for Cats and Dogs, Seksanet (Ovaban, Megace), 5 ml
1 ml of the drug contains:
megestrol acetate – 40 mg
Liquid white or light yellow, homogeneous.
Megestrol acetate is a synthetic progestogen that blocks the secretion of follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones produced by the anterior pituitary gland.
Lack of these hormones delays the maturation of follicles in the ovaries of females and ovulation, stops heat and sexual desire. Affects the endometrium of the uterus and causes its secretory phase, which inhibits the implantation of the embryo and provides the contraceptive effect of the drug.
In males, it blocks testosterone synthesis, which reduces sexual activity and associated anxiety, irritability, and aggressive behavior.
It is rapidly adsorbed in the intestine and reaches its maximum concentration in the blood 3 hours after consumption. Biotransformed in the liver and excreted within 1-2 days in the form of metabolites in the urine.
