Indicated for the treatment of ovarian follicular cysts in dairy cattle. Ovarian cysts are non-ovulated follicles with incomplete luteinization, which can result in nymphomania or irregular estrus.
Historically, cystic ovaries have responded to an exogenous source of luteinizing hormone (LH) such as human chorionic gonadotropin. FERTAGYL initiates release of endogenous LH to cause ovulation and luteinization. Fertagyl (gonadorelin) is now labeled for use with Estrumate® (cloprostenol injection) to synchronize estrous cycles to allow for fixed time artificial insemination in lactating dairy cows.
- A Gonadorelin (GnRH) formulation.
- Fertagyl is also indicated for the treatment of ovarian follicular cysts in dairy cattle.
- The recommended intramuscular or intravenous dosage of FERTAGYL is 86 µg/cow (2 mL; equivalent to 100 µg gonadorelin acetate/cow).
