Prid Delta with Grip Tail.

Prid Delta with grip tail retains the unique properties of Prid Delta, but now comes with a new and easy-to-use grip tail which makes it easier to extract from the cow.

Prid Delta with grip tail combines the well-liked features that already existed in Prid, higher progesterone release and the comfort that comes from the triangular shape, with a new and improved tail for easy removal of the product.

Prid Delta with grip tail contains 12% more progesterone than a T-shaped device and its larger surface area (29% greater) results in higher progesterone levels in the cow.

For the control of the œstrus cycle in cows and heifers including:
- Synchronisation of œstrus in cycling cattle. To be used in combination with a prostaglandin (PGF2a).
- Induction and synchronisation of œstrus in non cycling cattle. To be used in combination with a prostaglandin and equine chorionic gonadotrophin (eCG, in the past called PMSG).

Dosage and administration
Vaginal use. 1.55 g of progesterone / animal for 7 days.
Using an applicator, insert one device into the vagina of the animal. The intravaginal device should stay in place for 7 days. In cycling cattle, the device has to be used in combination with a prostaglandin, injected 24 hours prior to removal of the device. In non cycling cattle, an injection of a prostaglandin must be done 24 hours prior to removal of the device and an injection of eCG at the time of removal.
Disinfection procedure: The applicator must be cleaned and disinfected in a non-irritating antiseptic solution before and after use and between each animal.
Applicator method of use and Insertion: Bend the device before inserting in the applicator. Ensure the tail is in the appropriate slot. Lightly lubricate the distal end of the applicator with an obstetrical lubricant. Clean the animal's vulva before gently inserting the applicator in the vagina. Once the applicator has reached the fundus of the vagina, press on the handle to release the device. Remove the applicator gently and ensure the tail is outside the vulva.
Removal: Remove 7 days after insertion by gently pulling on the exposed tail.
Timing of insemination: Animals should be inseminated 56 hours after removal of the device.
The device is intended for single use only.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in sexually immature heifers or females with abnormal genital tracts e.g. freemartins. Do not use before 35 days have passed since previous calving. Do not use in animals suffering from infectious or non-infectious disease of the genital tract. Do not use in pregnant animals.

Special warnings for each target species
The percentage of cows displaying oestrus within a given period following treatment is usually greater than in untreated cows and the subsequent luteal phase is of normal duration. However, the progesterone treatment alone, according to dosage regimen proposed, is not sufficient to induce oestrus and ovulation in all cycling females. In order to optimise the protocol, it is advisable to determine cycling ovarian activity before using the progesterone treatment. Animals in poor condition, whether from illness, inadequate nutrition, unnecessary stress or other factors, may respond poorly to treatment.

Special precautions for use in animals
It is recommended to wait a minimum of 35 days following parturition before starting the treatment with this product.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
Gloves must be worn when handling the product both during insertion and removal. Do not eat or drink when handling the product. Wash hands after use.

Adverse reactions
During the course of the seven day treatment, the device may induce a mild local reaction (i.e. inflammation of the vaginal wall). A clinical study carried out with 319 cows and heifers has demonstrated that 25% of animals presented ropy or cloudy vulvar secretions at the device removal. This local reaction disappears rapidly without any treatment between removal and insemination and does not affect fertility at inseminations nor pregnancy rates.

Use during pregnancy or lactation
Can be used during lactation. Do not use before 35 days have passed since previous calving. Laboratory studies in rat and rabbit, after intramuscular or subcutaneous administrations, at repeated high doses of progesterone, have produced evidence of foetotoxic effects. The use of the product is contra-indicated in pregnant cattle.

Withdrawal period
Meat and offal: zero days. Milk: zero days.

Pharmaceutical precautions
This veterinary medicinal product does not require any special storage conditions. Shelf-life after first opening the immediate sachet: 6 months.
Any unused product or waste materials should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
