Presentation
Acegon is a solution for injection containing 50 µg/ml gonadorelin (as gonadorelin acetate). Also contains 9 mg/ml benzyl alcohol (E1519) as an excipient.

For intramuscular use.
Treatment of ovarian follicular cysts
100-150 µg of gonadorelin (as acetate) per animal (i.e. 2- 3 ml of the product per animal). If necessary, treatment can be repeated at intervals of 1-2 weeks.
In association with artificial insemination to optimise the time of ovulation, improving the chances that the treated cow will become fertile
100 µg of gonadorelin (as acetate) per animal (i.e. 2 ml of the product per animal). It must be administered at the same time as artificial insemination and/or 12 days after this.
The following timing of injection and insemination should be followed:
•Injection should be performed between 4 and 10 hours after oestrus detection.
•An interval of at least 2 hours between the injection of GnRH and artificial insemination is recommended.
•Artificial insemination should be carried out in accordance with the usual field recommendations, i.e., 12 to 24 hours after oestrus detection.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc
