The concept of drug originates from the use of plants that are effective in treating various types of disorders, from the lightest to the more severe. For example, the use of Chinchona S. bark to treat malaria, or Colchicum. A. to treat gout. At the beginning of the last century, due to the refinement of chemistry, several active principles were extracted and then modified to obtain single active substances with greater efficacy, or with similar or even different actions compared to the starting compound. For example, Salice (Salix A.) contains salicylate of methyl and salicylic aldehyde, which have anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective action.
A famous German industry, starting from those active ingredients, has obtained acetylsalicylic acid, which has the most pronounced anti-inflammatory activity, but with a strong gastrointestinal action. The growing interest in the veterinary field is mainly due to this factors:
Padenna Vet is able to reduce the content of botanicals by combining liquid feed treated with physical methods, with the consequence of greatly reducing the cost of the formula while maintaining the same effectiveness.
