Be the first to review this product


Oxytocin has numerous functions, but the two most known are for the milk letdown reflex and stimulation of uterine smooth muscle contractions.

Oxytocin stimulation of uterine contractions will decrease the interval between piglet births and is used on many farms as an intervention to reduce still births and aid in the farrowing process.

Because of its strong effects, Oxytocin usage is recommended in older parity sows and the last half of the birth order and should not be used as a substitute for obstetrical assistance.

The following are recommendations for properly using oxytocin:
  • Administer oxytocin only after full dilation.
  • Limit usage in gilt litters.
  • Do not use until a minimum of 6 pigs have been born.
  • Use when no piglets for over 40 minutes.
  • Two dose maximum.

  • Use Oxytocin to:
  • Precipitate labor.
  • Accelerate normal parturition.
  • Evacuation of uterine debris postpartum.
  • Control uterine hemorrhage.

  • Product purchase does require veterinarian prescription. If you do not have one, click here.
