Mastitis, metritis and agalactia, commonly referred to as MMA, is a complex syndrome seen in sows shortly (12 hours to three days) after farrowing. It is caused by a bacterial infection of the mammary glands (udder) and/or the urogenital tract. MMA leads to increased piglet mortality and reduced weaning weights.
Enzaprost® contains Dinoprost, a natural prostaglandin. The uteronic effect of this natural prostaglandin is fully beneficial for the post-partum use. It induces the evacuation of the uterus and accelerates uterus involution, therefore explaining the therapeutical effect of Dinoprost for MMA syndrome.
