NEW FOREST EQUINE VETS - FREE Cushing's disease lab tests for ALL horses & ponies, even those with PPID on Prascend

New Forest Equine Vets are offering FREE ACTH laboratory tests for ALL horses & ponies, even those who have been diagnosed with PPID (Cushing's disease) and are currently on treatment.

Approximately 90% of laminitis cases are caused by an underlying hormonal imbalance, most commonly PPID (Cushing's Disease) and Equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).

For those animals with PPID, careful monitoring through ACTH lab testing allows effective treatment, enabling most horses and ponies with PPID to lead a very happy and normal life. By being proactive you will not only improve your horse’s quality of life, but will also be less likely to have to face the expense and distress of coping with laminitis and the other clinical signs of PPID which include:

- Abnormal hair coat
- Abnormal fat distribution: pot belly, loss of muscle condition and a wasted topline
- Fat pads around the eyes
- Excessive/patchy sweating
- Increased drinking and urination
- Lethargy/poor performance
- Recurrent infections e.g. foot abscesses, sinusitis

During the autumnal period (August, September and October), the ACTH test which is used to detect PPID (Cushing’s Disease) is at its most sensitive. For this reason, we would recommend testing of all horses who have shown suspicious symptoms, those who have previously had a borderline ACTH result and monitoring those with PPID currently on treatment.

Offer available until 31st October 2017. Contact us on 01425 600080 or for more information
