protaglandinTwenty-four, non-lactating mares were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 groups: untreated controls; Regu-Mate 10 mL orally, and OvaMed 10 mL orally. Treatment was given daily for 10 days.

Results
There was no difference in the number of days to ovulation between the Regu-Mate and the OvaMed groups, and both groups were different (P<0.05) from the untreated controls.

Conclusion
OvaMed and Regu-Mate provide the same response by delaying estrus and ovulation after prostaglandin injection.
