Ceva Animal Health has launched Cevaprost (cloprostenol 0.250 mg/ml), an analogue of prostoglandin F2a, for cattle. 

The company says Cevaprost can help improve breeding success in reproduction protocols in cattle and has the following indications:

  • Silent heat
  • Ovarian luteal cysts
  • Termination of pregnancy
  • Induction of parturition
  • Removal of mummified foetus
  • Chronic endometritis (pyometra)
  • Synchronisation of oestrus (within two to five days) in groups of cyclic females treated simultaneously

Ceva says these indications are equivalent to those of the leading racemic and single isomer cloprostenols available in the UK.

Cevaprost is available in a 20ml colourless glass vial and in a multi-pack of 10 x 20ml vials. It can be administered in single or repeated 2ml doses (equivalent to 0.5mg of cloprostenol) by intramuscular injection. It has a withdrawal period of one day for meat and no withdrawal period for milk.

Peter Keyte, ruminant business unit manager at Ceva Animal Health, said: “We are delighted to add Cevaprost to our extensive range of reprodAction products to provide vet and farmers with comprehensive cattle reproduction solutions and improve breeding success in reproduction protocols.”
