Zydis® Fast Dissolve Technologies

Zydis® Fast Dissolve tablets dissolve within three seconds of administration, reducing the struggle to administer medication and ensuring the dose can’t be spit out. Zydis® also offers 'on the go' convenience which is particularly suited to pets with conditions that have acute or unpredictable symptoms such as pain, allergies, gastrointestinal upset as well as any therapies that need to be administered chronically.

The Zydis® platform has even successfully demonstrated the ability for drugs to be absorbed systemically through the oral mucosa, thereby reducing drug load required, providing flexibility in salt selection, and also avoiding issues with gastric degradation and hepatic metabolism.
