Stomorgyl is a combination of two antibiotics: spiramycin and metronidazole.
Spiramycin is a bacteriostatic that belongs to the macrolide family. It is active against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria (such as Mycoplasma), as well as against a narrower range of Gram-negative bacteria.Like other microlides, spiramycin inhibits protein synthesis and is fixed on bacterial ribosomes, thus leading to an inhibition of protein synthesis at the bacterial level.
Metronidazole is active against Gram negative and Gram-positive anaerobic germs (Bacteroides, Fusobacterium)
Periodontal diseases are of primary importance in dogs. They are associated with the appearance of dental tartar which is the right environment for the development of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms.
Studies have revealed the predominance of Streptococci, Pasteurella multocida, Staphylococci and anaerobic bacteria at the level of oral infections in carnivores. Also, spirochetes and fusiforms are often present in animals with oral infections.
The association metronidazole-spiramycin has a complementary spectrum, all germs recognized as pathogens are inhibited either by one or the other active ingredient.
Pharmacodynamic features :
After the oral administration, at 2-4 hours after administration, it was observed the existence of a high concentration of spiramycin in plasma and a high concentration of spiramycin in saliva for 4-8 hours after the administration of the product, a concentration three times higher than that detected in plasma.
The high concentration of metronidazole was detected one hour after administration in saliva at the same level as that in plasma.
The two active ingredients reach the oral cavity in a sufficient amount that inhibits the activity of the germs responsible for the pathological conditions in the area.
Species to which it is used: dogs and cats
