LUTALYSE®

(dinoprost tromethamine) Sterile Solution

Most-used prostaglandin in the market

LUTALYSE® (dinoprost tromethamine) Sterile Solution is the most "veterinarian recommended" and "producer used" prostaglandin in the market.1 Artificial insemination synchronization programs with LUTALYSE can improve breeding success. Producers and veterinarians today have more options for using LUTALYSE in reproduction programs than ever before. FACTREL® Injection (gonadorelin injection)  is now approved for use with LUTALYSE to synchronize estrous cycles to allow for fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) in lactating dairy cows.

LUTALYSE is the only prostaglandin approved to be used with EAZI-BREEDTM CIDR® (progesterone) Cattle Inserts in dairy heifers and dairy cows.

Zoetis is the world leader in dairy reproduction research and support and its products are supported by industry-leading sales and technical services.

    • Use with FACTREL for estrous synchronization is consistent with protocols recommended by the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council
    • A synchronized breeding program with LUTALYSE can:
      • Improve pregnancy rates
      • Reduce time necessary for heat detection
      • Make more efficient use of labor
      • Reduce cull rates
    • An entirely natural prostaglandin
    • No meat or milk withdrawal
    • A product you can trust for performance and safety: LUTALYSE is the most thoroughly researched prostaglandin in the world2
    • Useful therapeutically for controlled breeding
    • Ideal dose size reduces problems if injection-site leakage occurs
  • Effective in animals having a functional corpus luteum in the following applications:

    • For estrus synchronization, inject 5 mL LUTALYSE intramuscularly (IM) either once or twice at 10- to 12-day intervals.
    • For treatment of unobserved estrus, inject a 5 mL dose IM. If estrus has not been observed by 80 hours after injection, breed at 80 hours; if the cow returns to estrus, breed at the usual time relative to estrus.
    • For postpartum treatment of pyometra, inject a dose of 5 mL IM at signs of pyometra (presence of a corpus luteum on the ovary and uterine horns containing fluid but not a conceptus based on palpation).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR LUTALYSE: As with all parenteral products, aseptic technique should be used to reduce the possibility of post-injection bacterial infections. Do not administer in pregnant animals unless cessation of pregnancy is desired. Not for intravenous administration. Women of childbearing age and persons with respiratory problems should exercise extreme caution when handling this product. See full prescribing information, here

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR FACTREL: FACTREL is available through veterinary prescription only and not for use in humans. As with all drugs, FACTREL should not be used in animals found to be hypersensitive to the product. See full prescribing information, here.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR EAZI-BREED CIDR: Avoid contact with skin by wearing protective gloves when handling EAZI-BREED CIDR inserts. Do not use in heifers of insufficient size or age for breeding or in cattle with abnormal, immature, or infected genital tracts. Do not use inserts more than once.
