Physical Information

Syncrite-30 Intravaginal Sponges are a polyurethane sponge impregnated with 30mg Flugestone acetate (Flurogestone acetate, Flugesterone acetate) per sponge. Each sponge contains a drawstring to allow easy removal of the sponge.

Composition

Flugestone acetate (Flurogestone acetate, Flugesterone acetate) 30mg per sponge.

Indications

Syncrite-30 Intravaginal Sponges are used for controlled breeding in sheep and goats to synchronise oestrous (estrus, oestrus, estrous) and ovulation. Syncrite-30 Intravaginal sponges will not cause barren animals to become fertile. Flugestone acetate (Flurogestone acetate, Flugesterone acetate) is a potent progestogen, which will prolong the di-oestrus stage of the reproductive cycle allowing synchronization of the breeding cycle in a group of ewes. Following insertion of the Syncrite Vaginal sponge in the vagina, the sponge releases Flugestone acetate (Flurogestone acetate, Flugesterone acetate), a progestogen which is absorbed and subjects the ewe to a progestational action comparable to the luteal phase of the sexual cycle. This artificially imposed progestational phase is ended by the removal of the sponge.

Injection with PMSG at the time of sponge removal, induces a simultaneous start of the follicular phase in the treated animals. Follicles then develop and synchronised oestrous (estrus, oestrus, estrous) and ovulation follow.

Dosage and Administration

Oestrous (estrus, oestrus, estrous) is likely to occur 36 hours to 48 hours following sponge removal and ovulation after a following 24 hours. Induction of oestrous (estrus, oestrus, estrous) is enhanced following the use of PMSG 2 days before or at the time of sponge removal.

Insert the sponge by using the applicator. Disinfect the applicator in either a 10% benzalkonium chloride solution or 5g/L chlorhexidine gluconate solution. Do not immerse the sponge in disinfectant. Using a gloved hand insert the sponge into the end of the applicator so that the sponge is just behind the end of the applicator tube, leave the string hanging free. Insert the applicator 10cm to 15 cm into the vagina and gently eject the sponge by pushing the applicator plunger. Remove the applicator so that the drawstring is hanging outside the vagina. Wipe the applicator clean and re-immerse in disinfectant after each use.

Sponge removal – gently pull on the string to remove the sponge. Some discharge may occur which is normal. If no string is visible carefully examine the vagina to locate the string and remove the sponge.

Mating

  • Does – Mate or AI 36 to 48 hrs after sponge removal. If AI is used preferably administer a double dose of semen.
  • Sheep – Mate at 48 hrs and 60 hours after sponge removal, or AI 55 hours (48hrs to 60 hrs) after sponge removal. Preferably increase
    the number of rams in the flock to at least 1 ram per 10 ewes. Where
    teaser rams are used, inseminate any unmarked ewes at 72 hours after
    sponge removal.
  • Do not use alcohols, cresols, phenols or sheep dips as disinfectants on the sponges or applicator.
  • Goats may resent sponge insertion, take care and insert the sponge
    gently to avoid the doe moving suddenly and injuring herself.
  • If the sponge appears to have adhered to the vaginal wall, carefully
    reinsert the applicator and remove the sponge by exerting tension on the sponge through the applicator.
  • To avoid animals eating the sponges, burn or bury sponges once removed from the animal.
