Aurora Pharmaceutical receives FDA approval on SwineMate

Article-Aurora Pharmaceutical receives FDA approval on SwineMate

SwineMate (altrenogest) Solution is used for synchronization of estrus in sexually mature gilts that have had at least one estrus cycle. Treatment with altrenogest solution 0.22% results in estrus (standing heat) four to nine days after completion of the 14-day treatment period. Administer 6.8 milliliters (15 milligrams altrenogest) per gilt once daily for 14 consecutive days. Treat gilts on an individual basis by top-dressing SwineMate on a portion of each gilt’s daily feed allowance. To produce the desired synchronization of estrus in a group of gilts, treat all the gilts daily for the same 14-day period.

Talk with your veterinarian about the proper use and safe-handling of SwineMate.

SwineMate (altrenogest) Solution 0.22% is available in 1,000 milliliter plastic bottles along with a dispensing cap.

Aurora Pharmaceutical has supply agreements with all major distributors throughout the United States. Check the website for the list and contact information.
