Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/15/2014 -- Equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG), also known as pregnant mare’s serum gonadotropin (PMSG) is a hormone that pregnant mares produce and secrete from structures called endometrial cups from days 40 to 130 of being pregnant. It is used to manage breeding of farm animals. eCG acts like leuteinizing hormone (LH) in horses, which at high levels causes ovulation and development of the corpus luteum that secretes progesterone which affects the development of the endometrium to maintain a pregnancy. In other animals, it acts like LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which acts in conjunction with LH to stimulate ovulation in females.
The hormone is collected from pregnant mares and given to female sheep goats, cattle and swine to make them go into heat (estrus). It has even been shown that eCG increased reproduction rates in mink that were not in heat during the breeding season. Higher eCG level further improved the reproduction rate.Adequan While mostly used in farm animals, it is also used in cat and dogs. There are other hormones that can be used, but eCG stays in the body longer so it is the preferred hormone to promote estrus in breeding females.
