    I'd personally start with Prascend :) Seriously, I found the article being cited. There's any number of reasons they might have said that, including the fact that a number of horses came into the...

    I actually did not make any changes to his diet, turnout, etc., because he only has Cushing's, he is not insulin resistant. I've actually had to up his feed at times, including his alfalfa intake,...

    ^ Well, my gelding got laminitis in the fall of 2013 and tested normal. The following fall he tested high and we put him on the Prascend. In the interim, while he did not develop laminitis again,...

    I've accepted that I can't have nice things if I want cats and dogs :) When we bought our house 14 years ago, we refinished the hardwood in most of the house and put carpet down in the bedrooms. A...

    It depends on the horse :) My gelding with Cushing's does fine with some alfalfa in his diet and it helps him keep weight on.

    Has he been tested for Cushing's? Especially since he's a little underweight?

    Fig newtons work for small pills. I've also used the NickerBait pill camo, which comes in two sizes. The mini ones are great for Prascend or Previcox tablets.

    I used the "soft" pads to begin with, but then switched to the medium density as I found they held up better.E

    ETA: Is she on pergolide/Prascend for the Cushing's?

    I used the Easy Boot Trail for my gelding when he had laminitis. He ended up wearing them 24/7 for a number of months. They stayed on very well, even in his paddock (1/4 acre), but did come off in...

    I'd still have his teeth looked at. My gelding started quidding just a couple of months after a float and the vet found a fractured molar which had to be extracted.

    You could smell his breath...

    I haven't read all of the replies, but my barn does charge a small monthly fee ($25) for an extra rider if a boarder's horse is leased out to a third party.

    No extra charge if a friend comes out...

    Interesting. My gelding also probably had Cushing's long before the blood tests showed it. His ACTH levels were normal when he had laminitis (although it could have been a false negative result as...

    These also work really well. They come in two sizes, and the "mini" ones hid a Prascend completely. The larger ones will hide a Bute tablet if you break it in half and feed the cookie upside down...

    I also usually use the fig newtons :) Right now I'm using a soft cookie because I got a bad batch of fig newtons or something (both horses spit them out).

    My guy is only 21 or so, and still...

    ^ Thanks. I got a fair amount of hair off him today, so I guess I'll have to wait and see if he sheds out any faster this year. The chaser clip took care of the parts that usually take forever to...

    I think it's just a probiotic, but my very picky gelding is happily eating Opti-Zyme. And it has cleared up his perpetually watery manure.

    I understood the "average" Prascend dose to be 1 mg and that the compounded dosage is a little higher? I'm hesitant to up the dosage based on his hair coat alone. The 1 mg is controlling the ACTH...

    I just started my picky Cushing's gelding on the LMF Super Supplement after he decided he would not eat HorseTech's vitamin/mineral supplement anymore :( He LOVES it and is finishing his lunch every...
  20. Cushing's, Prascend, and Poor Hair Coat Question

    This might be a little long... My question is to other Prascend users. Did it help with the long hair coat/shedding problem, or no?

    My gelding was diagnosed with Cushing's in the fall of 2013...

    My mare stocks up on both hinds when it's hot out and they just stand around all day. I find MSM keeps it from happening. I don't know if it would help for stocking up after cellulitis, but it...

    My gelding with Cushing's is also super picky :) I feed his Prascend separately in a fig newton to make sure he gets it.

    Most recently, mine has decided he will not eat the vitamin/mineral...

    My gelding is on Prascend.

    His only real symptom of Cushing's was unexplained laminitis and a slight loss of top line. He was always slow to shed (although he does eventually shed on his own)...

    My gelding had to wear hoof boots for an entire winter once due to laminitis. First, make sure they fit. Mine fit but were a tad snug the first week or so until they stretched a little. I used the...
