PG 600 from Merck is used for induction of estrus (heat) in perpuberal gilts and weaned sows. Prepuberal gilts should be injected when they are selected for addition to the breeding herd. Sows should be injected at weaning during periods of delayed return to estrus. Labeled for Swine Only! Vaccine/Refrigerated product.
