Pentoxifylline 400mg ER Tablets
Pentoxifylline is an immunomodulatory agent used to treat certain immune-mediated skin conditions and inflammation of the blood vessels, leading to poor blood flow. This includes, but is not limited to, ear margin dermatitis and cutaneous lupus in dogs, and navicular disease in horses. It is a vasodilator, sometimes prescribed by veterinarians for dogs and cats to promote healing of certain skin conditions by helping increase blood flow to affected areas, and to help treat vascular diseases in cats, dogs and horses. Pentoxifylline seems to make new red blood cells more flexible and decreases the thickness of the blood. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and gain better access to the body’s very small blood vessels. In horses, pentoxifylline is also thought to decrease cytokines, which are chemical messengers of inflammation driven by the immune system. The medication comes in extended-release tablets meaning they release the active ingredient slowly and consistently once given.
