|Drug Name and Strength||Altrenogest 2.2 mg/mL|
|Indication||Regulation and control of mares breeding cycles. Induce ovulatory oestrus early in the breeding season in mares where some follicular activity exists; suppress oestrus either during prolonged oestrus or in normally cycling mares; control the ovarian cycle in breeding mares to allow the most efficient use of the stallion.Pregnancy maintenance. Maintenance of pregnancy in habitually aborting mares, or mares at risk of early embryonic death or abortion, when progesterone deficiency is thought to be the underlying cause.|
|Contraindications||Not for use in stallions or geldings; contraindicated for use in mares with uterine infections.|
|Actions||Altrenogest acts similarly to the natural hormone progesterone by suppressing the normal sexual cycle and preventing signs of heat and ovulation. Mares return to heat and release natural hormones again once treatment stops. Treatment with altrenogest makes it possible to finely regulate the breeding of mares.|
|Precautions||Unused feed must be destroyed and not given to any other animal. Product must be added to the feed immediately prior to consumption and feed is not to be stored.|
