Exclusive AI synchronization with Eazi-Breed™ CIDR® Cattle Insert

Take your reproductive program to a higher level with LUTALYSE® (dinoprost tromethamine) Sterile Solution and Eazi-Breed™ CIDR® Cattle Insert. AI synchronization programs, such as the use of LUTALYSE and Eazi-Breed CIDR for timed breeding, can help improve a herd’s reproductive performance by improving heat detection efficiency, more timely first service and higher pregnancy rates.

 While many programs exist, we understand the importance of on-label reproductive protocols to veterinarians and their clients. LUTALYSE is the only prostaglandin approved for concurrent use with Eazi-Breed CIDR in an AI synchronization program for dairy cattle. The on-label protocol for using Eazi-Breed CIDR with LUTALYSE for synchronization in lactating dairy cows is:

  1. Administer Eazi-Breed CIDR on Day 0.
  2. Remove on Day 7 (for example, if it was inserted on a Monday, remove the next Monday). At the time of removal, administer 5 mL of LUTALYSE intramuscularly.
  3. Observe for estrus on Days 9 to 12, and breed on standing heat.

 This approved label is a continuation of our commitment to you that we will keep working toward providing new on-label animal health management solutions that dairy producers and veterinarians can use with confidence.



IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR EAZI-BREED CIDR INSERTS:  Avoid contact with skin by wearing protective gloves when handling EAZI-BREED CIDR inserts.  Do not use in heifers of insufficient size or age for breeding or in cattle with abnormal, immature, or infected genital tracts.  Do not use inserts more than once.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR LUTALYSE:  Women of childbearing age and persons with respiratory problems should exercise extreme caution when handling LUTALYSE.  LUTALYSE is readily absorbed through the skin and may cause abortion and/or bronchiospasms, therefore spillage on the skin should be washed off immediately with soap and water.  Aseptic technique should be used to reduce the possibility of post-injection clostridial infections.  Do not administer LUTALYSE in pregnant cattle unless cessation of pregnancy is desired.  See full Prescribing Information, here.
