Forte Healthcare has announced that Genestran (R-closprostenol), its injectable synthetic prostaglandin for use in cattle, horses and pigs, is now available in a 50ml bottle, complementing the current 20ml bottle.

Maeve Cuffe, Junior Brand Manager of large animal products, at Forte Healthcare Ltd said: “As dairy herds increase in size, routine fertility visits result in larger numbers of cows requiring prostaglandin treatment.

"Also, some vets now recommend two shots of prostaglandin instead of one in certain synchronisation protocols.

"The 25 dose presentation of Genestran is a great addition to the range, helping vets keep enough prostaglandin in stock, while minimising waste.”

Genestran 50ml is available in all veterinary wholesalers now.
