Terbutaline Sulfate Tablets
Terbutaline Sulfate is a generic medication for Brethine® or Bricanyl®. Terbutaline sulfate is used to assist breathing in specific airway diseases through its bronchodilation effects in dogs and cats. On occasion, Terbutaline is also used to treat some slow heart arrhythmias. It stimulates type 2 beta-adrenergic receptors. Beta-receptors are cell membrane targets that modify organ activity when stimulated by norepinephrine, epinephrine or related drugs. Stimulation of beta-2 receptors in smooth muscle causes the muscle to relax. This muscle relaxation results in dilation of the airways and blood vessels and can make breathing easier and less painful for your pet. Terbutaline predominately stimulates beta-2 receptors in the airways and uterus, causing these muscles to relax. The major use of terbutaline in pets is in the treatment of bronchial disease such as asthma and bronchitis.
