Planate 0.0875 mg/ml Solution for injection 20ml.


A colourless, buffered, sterile aqueous solution for injection containing 0.0875 mg Cloprostenol (as 0.092 mg Cloprostenol Sodium) per ml. Chlorocresol is added as preservative.


A synthetic prostaglandin analogue for use in pigs as a luteolytic agent to induce farrowing in sows and gilts, thus providing opportunity for more efficient and convenient management under a variety of systems.

-Allows batch management of sows and gilts to be efficiently achieved.

-Minimises farrowings at weekends, public holidays and during the night.

-Facilitates supervision of farrowing.

-Facilitates interfostering.

-Enables farrowing and labour schedules to be planned for convenience.

-Prevents sows and gilts going beyond term.

-Allows optimal use of farrowing quarters, equipment etc.

Dosage and administration

A single 2 ml dose is given by deep intramuscular injection. It is recommended that a 1½ inch needle be used.

Having calculated the average gestation length for each farm, sows and gilts may be injected two days before this date or on any date thereafter to suit the requirements of the particular management system. Trials have shown that normally 95% of animals will commence farrowing within 36 hours of treatment. The majority of animals can be expected to respond within the period 24 ± 5 hours following injection, except in those cases where spontaneous farrowing is imminent.

No special precautions are necessary during pregnancy.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Induction of farrowing too early in pregnancy can lead to non-viable piglets being born. An increase in the number of non-viable piglets may result if used more than two days prior to the average gestation length calculated from farm records.
