PEPTIVET® - a new generation of dermatology topicals (See also Peptivet Shampoo and Peptivet Foam)


Peptivet® Oto Gel contains the patented peptide AMP2041, a new innovation in veterinary topicals, which has been specifically developed to help veterinary practices manage their dermatology cases responsibly.


In the current climate of trying to reduce the use of antibiotics in both human and veterinary medicine, it has been shown that non-antibiotic topical products can be used alone to help manage ear and skin problems without needing to use products that may be susceptible to ever growing resistance.

Resistance arises when the micro-organisms which cause infection survive exposure to a medicine that would normally kill them or stop their growth.

Resistance is a natural biological phenomenon but is increased and accelerated by various factors such as overuse and misuse of medicines, poor infection control practices and global trade and travel.

The VMD supports and encourages the responsible use of antibiotics. Responsible use requires veterinary surgeons to take into consideration … the most appropriate active substance(s), and BSAVA’s PROTECT guidelines, developed with the Small Animal Medicine Society, have become an essential tool in helping practices ensure they are taking a responsible approach to this situation.

PEPTIVET®

Peptivet® Oto Gel contains the patented peptide AMP2041, a new innovation in veterinary topicals, which has been specifically developed to help veterinary practices manage their dermatology cases responsibly.
 
Peptides are short chains of amino acids. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and many other different types of organic molecules. The digestion of proteins in the body frequently creates peptides and the bloodstream readily and rapidly absorbs many types of peptides. For this reason, peptides are particularly effective as skin care ingredients.

Peptivet® Oto Gel contains the key ingredients :

  • AMP2041 (peptide) is an innovative patented, synthesized antibacterial peptide, which works by disturbing and perforating the bacterial cell membrane.
  • Chlorhexidine DiGluconate ( 0.07% ) has an antibacterial and antifungal action which is not inactivated by pus or organic material.  Chlorhexidine works synergistically with the other ingredients, enabling very low levels to be used.  
  • TrisEDTA enhances the permeability of the bacterial membrane and potentiates chlorhexidine and other antibacterial agents.
  • Vitamin PP (Niacinamide-  also known as Vitamin B3 or niacin);  Zinc PCA and Glycerophosphoinositol Lysine work together to reduce redness, soothe irritation and provide moisturisation to the ear.

PROPERTIES

Peptivet® Oto Gel helps to improve the physiological state of the skin, counteract irritation and helps restore the skin barrier.
