Altrenogest is indicated to suppress estrus in animals to facilitate induction of normal estrous cycle activity. It is used in mares to facilitate scheduled breeding activity. It is also used to suppress estrous behavior in performance horses. When treatment is discontinued, mares exhibiting regular estrous cycles return to estrus within 4 to 5 days following treatment and continue to cycle normally.
In swine, altrenogest is used for synchronization of estrus in sexually mature gilts that have had at least one estrous cycle. Do not use in gilts having a previous or current history of uterine inflammation (i.e., acute, subacute, or chronic endometritis).
