Amounts to be administered and administration route
Gilts: One dose of 5 ml per gilt per day for 18 consecutive days given orally with feed for immediate consumption.
Sows: One dose of 5 ml per sow per day for 3 consecutive days given orally with feed for immediate consumption.

Administration of product supplied in pressurised 360 ml canister: Do not shake before use to avoid mixing the solution with the nitrogen included in this pressurised container. Animals should be segregated and dosed individually. Add the product as a top dressing to the feed using the metered dose applicator. Add to the surface of the feed immediately before feeding. Discard any remaining medicated feed.
Group feeding on the floor: Feed should be presented in such a manner that each pig is allowed sufficient floor space to get equal access to the feed. Once the animals have started feeding, dispense one dose of Regumate as a top-dressing on the feed in front of each pig.

Administration of product supplied in 540 ml and 1 L container (not pressurised):
- Remove the cap and the obturator.
- Measure the clinical dose of 5 ml using the dosing cup provided.
- Pour the dose on the feed.
- Close the bottle with the obturator and the screwable cap after each use.

Overdose
No special precautions required. Doses of 20 times the recommended dose did not affect pigs nor their offspring.

Withdrawal periods
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Pigs may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 9 days from the last treatment.
Pharmacological particulars
ATC Vet Code: QG03DX90

Pharmatherapeutic group: Sex hormones and modulators of the genital system, Progestogens, Other progestogens.

Pharmacodynamic properties
Altrenogest has a similar action to the natural hormone progesterone. When administered orally it suppresses the normal sexual cycle, preventing signs of heat and ovulation. Withdrawal of Regumate then allows the natural hormones to be released again and animals return to heat in a synchronised fashion.

Pharmacokinetic properties
Altrenogest is rapidly absorbed following oral administration, with peak plasma concentrations being reached between 1 and 4 hours after treatment. The liver is the main organ involved in altrenogest's metabolism and biliary excretion is its main route of elimination. Following treatment, circulating altrenogest concentrations decline biphasically. Half life of elimination was estimated to be around 14 hours.

Pharmaceutical particulars
Excipients
Butylated hydroxytoluene (E321), Butylated hydroxyanisole (E320) and Soya oil.

Major incompatibilities
None known.
