Peripheral vasodilator (purine derivatives).
Propentofylline increases blood flow of the heart, skeletal muscle and brain and therefore the oxygen supply. It has a modest positive chronotropic effect and a marked positive inotropic effect, anti-arrhythmic effect in dogs with myocardial ischemia and a bronchodilator action. It inhibits platelet aggregation and improves flow properties of erythrocytes. It has a direct effect on the heart and reduces peripheral vascular resistance thereby lowering cardiac load. Propentofylline may increase willingness to exercise and exercise tolerance, particularly in older dogs. After oral administration, propentofylline is fast and completely absorbed and quickly distributed into tissues.
For the improvement of peripheral and cerebral vascular blood circulation. For improvement in dullness, lethargy and overall demeanour in dogs.
