Description

Oxytocin Injection is used to assist in giving birth in multiple species including dogs and cats. It is a prescription hormone used to increase uterine contractions, for milk letdown or for the treatment of egg binding in birds and reptiles.

Key Features

  • Prescription hormone for intravenous, intramuscular or subcutaneous injection
  • Oxytocin is used to stimulate uterine contractions in multiple species
  • Also aids in milk letdown in females with adequate milk production

How It Works

Oxytocin Injection is used to assist in the birthing process. It is used to stimulate contractions of the uterus and affects the mammary glands by increasing milk letdown. Oxytocin is a hormone naturally released by the hypothalamus section of the brain during labor to stimulate uterine contractions. This injectable form of the hormone, Oxytocin is FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine. It is approved for use in multiple animal species and is also used for the treatment of egg binding in birds and reptiles.

Indications

Because of the specific action of oxytocin upon the uterine musculature, it isrecommended as an aid in the management of the following conditions:

  1. To precipitate labor.
  2. To accelerate normal parturition.
  3. Postpartum evacuation of uterine debris.
  4. Postoperative contraction of the uterus following a cesarean section and control of uterinehemorrhage.

Oxytocin will contract the smooth muscle cells of the mammary gland to induce milk let-down if theudder is in a proper physiological state.
