WHAT THIS PRODUCT CURES
Megestrol is used to postpone the heat cycle and end false pregnancy.
Heat is the common term used for a female which is in her cycle of breeding. Canines and felines are seasonally polyestrous. The term seasonally polyestrous indicates that the mammal will repeat the cycle of heat over one year unless bred. Four stages make up the heat cycle of a dog; Proestrus, Estrus, Diestrus, and Anestrous. Proestrus is the first stage of the heat cycle, lasting for approximately 4-20 days. During this stage the female is not susceptible to a male but will display a swollen vulva, a discharge will appear, and male dogs will begin taking notice of the female. Estrus is the stage in which the female is fertile and will except a male, usually lasting from 5-14 days. Diestrus is the stage in which the female is no longer fertile, lasting 60-90 days the female will still attract males. The last stage is Anestrous, lasting 60-90 days the female will return to her normal state.
The heat cycle of the feline is similar to the canine, yet is much shorter. There are four stages in the heat cycle of a cat; Proestrus, Estrus, Diestrus, and Anestrous. Proestrus is the first stage of the heat cycle, lasting for approximately 1-2 days. During this stage the female is not susceptible to a male but will display a swollen vulva, a discharge will appear, and male cats will begin taking notice of the female. Estrus is the stage in which the female is fertile and will except a male, usually lasting from 4-6 days. In the estrus stage the female cat will develop an unusual behavior. She may vocalize throughout the day, crouch to the ground, or rub up against objects. Diestrus is the stage in which the female is no longer fertile, lasting 7-14 days the female will still attract males. The last stage is Anestrous, lasting 90 days the female will return to her normal state.
The heat cycles will continue to cycle around the year unless spaying or conception occurs. In a female cat which has mated, the cycle will end after Diestrus and kittens will be birthed approximately 63 days after conception. In a female dog which has mated, the cycle will end after Diestrus and puppies with be birthed approximately 63 days after conception.
A female feline of canine which is in estrous will have an engorged valve and display estrous behavior. She may vocalize throughout the day, crouch to the ground, or rub up against objects.
