Presentation Clear gelatin capsules enclosing orange-coloured granules. Each Peridale capsule contains: sterculia 118 mg.
Uses: Bulk promoting agent, exerting its effect mainly by a hydrophilic action. The sterculia in Peridale takes up as much as 60 times its own volume of water, forming a gelatinous mass. This increases the bulk of the intestinal contents, promotes peristalsis and helps to ensure the easy passage of a soft stool. Sterculia is an otherwise inert substance, not absorbed and so not exerting any systemic effect.
Indications in cats:
- Control of specific and non-specific diarrhoea.
- Control of faecal consistency following surgery.
- After-surgery constipation.
The capsule may be given directly, or the contents sprinkled on food. If the capsules are to be opened, the contents should be sprinkled on a small amount of food immediately before consumption.
