P.G. 600® is intended as a management tool to improve reproductive efficiency in swine production operations. It is used for the induction of estrus in prepuberal gilts and weaned sows that are experiencing a delayed return to estrus. Improves breeding performance in hot weather months. The combination of Serum Gonadotropin and Chorionic Gonadotropin mimics the naturally-occurring reproductive hormones, Follicle-Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone. Prepuberal gilts should be over 5½ months of age and weigh at least 187 lbs.
For animal use only.
Once reconstituted, P.G. 600 should be used immediately.
Unused solution should be disposed of properly and not stored for future use.
Store at or below room temperature, 77°F (25°C).
When reconstituted, the five dose vial (25 ml) of P.G. 600 contains:
Serum Gonadotropin (PMSG): 2000 IU
Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG): 1000 IU
Directions for Use: Prepuberal gilts should be injected when they are selected for addition to the breeding herd. Sows should be injected at weaning during periods of delayed return to estrus.
Using a sterile syringe and a sterile 0.90 x 38 mm (20 G x 1 ½”) hypodermic needle, transfer approximately 5 ml of the sterile diluent into the vial of freeze-dried powder. Shake gently to dissolve the powder. Transfer the dissolved product back into the vial of diluent and shake gently to mix. Inject one dose (5 ml) into the gilt or sow’s neck behind the ear.
Treatment will not induce estrus in gilts that have already reached puberty (begun to cycle). Gilts that are less than 5½ months of age or that weigh less than 85 kg (187 lbs) may not be mature enough to continue normal estrus cycles or maintain a normal pregnancy to full term after treatment.
Treatment will not induce estrus in sows that are returning to estrus normally 3 to 7 days after weaning. Delayed return to estrus is most prevalent after the first litter; the effectiveness of P.G. 600 has not been established after later litters. Delayed return to estrus often occurs during periods of adverse environmental conditions, and sows mated under such conditions may farrow smaller than normal litters.
