How to Use SucroMate™ Equine

CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

DESCRIPTION: SucroMate™ Equine (deslorelin acetate) is a sterile, synthetic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analog suspension. SucroMate™ Equine is a sustained release formulation that forms an in situ gel upon intramuscular injection. Deslorelin acetate is [(6-D-tryptophan-9-(N-ethyl-Lprolinamide)- 10-deglycinamide)] GnRH. The molecular weight is 1282.6.

INDICATION: SucroMate™ Equine is indicated for inducing ovulation within 48 hours of treatment in cyclic estrous mares with an ovarian follicle between 30 and 40 mm in diameter.

DOSAGE and ADMINISTRATION: Shake well before use. Administer 1 mL (one dose) per estrus cycle, 48 hours prior to desired ovulation. Verify that the mare is in estrus and has at least one ovarian follicle between 30 and 40 mm in diameter.

SucroMate™ Equine is a suspension of deslorelin and settling will occur over time. Warm the product for 2 minutes by rolling the vial between the palms (to reach room temperature), or allow the vial to sit for 30 minutes at room temperature prior to administration. Shake the vial vigorously for 1 minute before use. Administer a 1 mL intramuscular injection into the thick musculature of the neck.

Prior to administration, it should be determined by rectal palpation and/or ultrasonography that the cyclic estrous mare has an ovarian follicle between 30 and 40 mm in diameter. Effectiveness is contingent upon accurate diagnosis of estrus and detection of a developing follicle between 30 and 40 mm in diameter. Only 1 mL should be administered per mare during a given estrus.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: SucroMate™ Equine is contraindicated in horses known to be hyper - sensitive to deslorelin acetate.

WARNING: For use in horses (estrous mares) only. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. For intramuscular (IM) use only. Do not administer intravascularly. Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children.
