Injections of Oxytocin-S will initiate strong, regular and purposeful contractions of the uterine muscle especially in the later stages of pregnancy and post-partum.

Oxytocin-S evokes the 'let down' of milk

The absence of vasopressor and antidiuretic effects make Oxytocin-S particularly suitable for obstetric use (stimulation of parturition, promotion of uterine involution and control of post-partum haemorrhage) and the treatment of agalactia.

Oxytocin-S is indicated for:

stimulation of uterine contraction to facilitate parturition in the presence of a fully dilated cervix

to promote involution of the post-parturient uterus and thus aid the passage of retained placenta

to aid in the control of post-partum haemorrhage

promotion of milk 'let-down' in cases of agalactia and to facilitate 'stripping out' of infected quarters in the treatment of mastitis in cows.

Dosage and administration Oxytocin-S should normally be given by deep intramuscular injection.

Species      Dosage
Cat  2-5 i.u.   0.2-0.5 ml
Dog  2-10 i.u.  0.2-1 ml
Ewe, goat, sow  2-10 i.u.  0.2-1 ml
Mare 10-40 i.u.    1-4 ml
Cow Indications (see 'Uses' above) other than mastitis
  10-40 i.u.    1-4 ml Adjunct to mastitis treatment A single dose of up to 80 i.u. (8 ml) prior to stripping out before the first mastitis treatment followed by repeated doses of 20 i.u. (2 ml) prior to each stripping out 2 or 3 times daily while mastitis treatment continues.

Where the intravenous route is used, these doses should be reduced to one-quarter of the intramuscular dose and the injection given slowly at a dilution of 1 in 10 Water for Injections PhEur. Where speed of onset is not a priority, Oxytocin-S may be given by the subcutaneous route. A low initial dosage is recommended by any route as repeat administration is permissible. Large doses may be employed in post-parturient animals. Use with aseptic precautions.
