Cushings Free Naturally is a natural cushing’s treatment for horses. Equine Cushing’s disease, also known as pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID), is caused when the pituitary gland mal-functions and releases excessive levels of the hormone adrenocorticotropin (ACTH).

Cushing’s in horses shows up as a longer, shaggy coat and delayed shedding after winter, laminitis/founder, increased sweating, muscle and weight loss and sometimes excessive drinking and urinating.

Cushing’s Free Naturally is a naturally powerful herbal supplement to help balance the over production of hormones made by pituitary and hypothalamus glands. Many horse owners report a noticeable improvement in just a few weeks of using it.

Cushings Free Naturally herbal supplement for Equine Cushings Disease is an alternative to Prascend/Pergolide.

** If your horse is currently on Prascend/Pergolide:  For a successful transition from Prascend/Pergolide you should start your horse on Cushings Free Naturally at the same time you start weaning off of Prascend/Pergolide. Add Cushings Free Naturally daily and Prascend/Pergolide every other day for a week or so, then every 2 days and so on until they are completely off.**

Cushings Free Naturally- Natural Cushing’s Treatment for Horses

Natural Cushing's Treatment for Horses


What are the first signs of Equine Cushing’s disease in horses?

Cushing’s disease usually occurs in mature horses starting around age 15 although there are cases in horses as young as 7. The symptoms start gradually with the most noticeable being an unusually thick shaggy coat that stays on after winter and laminitis that occurs out of nowhere.

The link between laminitis and Cushings Disease ( PPID ), though not completely understood, is believed to be caused by high levels of cortisol and cortisol like hormones in the blood circulation.

Symptoms of Cushing’s Disease in Horses:

  • Winter coat that gets very long, matted and curly especially around the legs
  • Late or no shedding of winter coat
  • Increased sweating
  • Excessive drinking and urination
  • Low energy and poor performance
  • Looking “Pot-bellied” 
  • Loss of topline and decreased muscle tone
  • Cresty neck fat pads above the eyes and on the backend
  • Sudden and recurring laminitis/founder
  • Slow wound healing and infections

What happens if Cushing’s is left untreated in horses?

Left untreated, Equine Cushing’s disease can lead to serious health issues for your horse. Severe neurological problems can occur causing uncoordinated movement that gets worse and in extreme cases horses can’t get up after lying down.

They may start to breathe heavy, sweat while standing still and become extremely lethargic. Severe laminitis causing founder and ultimately… death.

How do you treat Equine Cushing’s disease in horses naturally?

A comprehensive natural cushing’s treatment for horses includes addressing the underlying causes which then relieves the symptoms.

Your Vet may prescribe drugs such as Pergolide/Prascend to treat Cushings Disease in your horse. Prascend can have negative side effects such as, loss of appetite, weight loss, depression, lethargy, and diarrhea. Cushings Free Naturally is a natural cushing’s treatment for horses and an alternative to Prascend to support the Cushings Horse.

* If your horse is currently on Prascend/Pergolide: When you start your horse on Cushings Free Naturally you will also need to start weaning off of Prascend/Pergolide at the same time. Start with every other day for a week or so, then every 2 days and so on until they are completely off.

The most effective holistic program uses herbs for equine cushings, along with proper diet and lifestyle changes. This is best accomplished by supplementing with the right herbal remedies and nutrients. Our natural cushing’s treatment protocol for horses has proven successful for hundreds of horses.

Our customers report rapid improvement of symptoms like sore feet, weight gain, long coat, and laminitis/founder when combined with overall recommended lifestyle changes.

I highly recommend THE HAY PILLOW for a slow-feeder hay bag designed for ground feeding. The Hay Pillow allows your horse to eat in a natural grazing position.

Feeding Cushings Free Naturally daily along with limiting access to grass, increased movement and exercise, using slow feeders and proper hoof care can quickly reverse the symptoms and get your horse sound, comfortable and back riding.

Adrenal Support Naturally is also a great addition for horses with Cushings (PPID), Laminitis/Founder, Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), EPM, under stress from training, trailering, showing, competing, or vaccinations, or long term drug use. Adrenal Support Naturally helps to balance adrenal and pituitary activity promoting a healthy stress response and adrenal gland function.

Cushings Free Naturally is a powerful natural herbal supplement for equine cushings that includes:

  • Blood detoxifying herbs – to remove excess hormones  from the blood stream and reduce inflammation.

    In February, 2022 I was given a 22 yo QH gelding. He had tested positive for PPID (ACTH over 300) and was on Prescend. His body condition was very poor. His hair coat was thick and wavy, he lacked muscle tone, his behavior was off, his fitness was poor, etc.

    Fast forward to October, 2022 and he looks ten years younger. He’s been on Cushing’s Free Naturally (and off Prescend) and his ACTH level is now 25! His hair coat is shiny and gorgeous, his muscle tone is spot on, his behavior is appropriate, his fitness level is solid, and his body condition is superb.

    Cushing’s Free Naturally, a natural and supportive lifestyle, and great nutrition combined have totally changed my horse’s life. THANK YOU!!!

    I’m sold on Cushings Free. My senior gelding was covered in long hair this summer, shortly after restarting him on the Cushings Free product, within weeks he was shedding out. He still has a bit of long hair left but most of his hair has shed out. I had stopped giving him the product this winter and at some point had even tried another product but it did nothing. He will never be without Cushings Free again, this product has made a huge improvement in the way he looks and how he feels. For all that he has done for me, my best friend deserves to feel his best and now he does.

    My 26 year old paint gelding finally tested positive for cushings. He has been slightly foot sore for some time. He wears soft ride or easy boot clouds when I’m his stall/paddock. Goes barefoot for turn out. Since using this product he is no longer foot sore. He has been boot free for 5 weeks. Yay!!! Thanks for another great product!!!

    Started using this product when my horse was diagnosed in February. My horse’s ACTH level is 50 (which is borderline) during the seasonal rise. He has shed out his very long coat (the reason I had him tested). His energy level has also improved. I am very happy with the results of this product and would recommend as an alternative.

    I have been feeding Cushings Free approximately three weeks. My horse shedding off excess hair, so I can see the supplement is working. I have attached pics of his current state in the middle of August. The pics show how shaggy he has been this summer and where he is finally shedding across his back and hindquarters. So far I am impressed by the results and will continue with this supplement. My 26 yr old gelding has been on Peroglide for almost a decade, and he has become familiar with every trick in the book to get a horse to take pills. It has become increasingly impossible to keep his medication regular and his cortisol levels have been way too high. He is picky, and won’t eat powdered suplements. This supplement is small loose pellets, and my old picky boy happily eats it. I have been giving him one scoop twice a day. No question that this is helping him. Can’t wait to see if another month or two will have him looking like his old self again… Thank You!!!

    My 25 year old haflinger mare didn’t shed out last summer like she should, so I started her on some chasteberry from another company. It helped, but she still had a heavier coat than normal. So I went back on line and found Alternative Animal’s blend of herbs for Cushings and decided to give it a try. It took about a month or two, but Brandy is no longer showing any signs of Cushings! Love the product!

    My 24-year-old pony has Cushing’s and anhidrosis. He’s getting OneAC for the anhidrosis but unfortunately, pergolide isn’t an option for him due to a bad reaction. I stumbled across the Cushing’s Free Natural Supplement and will never be without it. I usually do a partial shave/clip on his winter coat in the spring and then a full body clip once summer hits. This year I didn’t have to do a full body clip as he’s shedding out on his own. He’s much perkier and seems to be more comfortable overall. I’ve had this pony for 22 years and it’s nice seeing his old ‘spunk’ back.

    After my horse was diagnosed with early Cushing’s I went on a mass project of researching what would be the best for her condition and aging years. First thing I did was change her grain to soy free, messes with the hormones. I had started out with a lady who specializes in holistic supplement, one being Cushings. I had her on those for about 5 months, didn’t notice much change. I went back to my homework to look further and found Alternative Animal products. She seems to do pretty well, looks great for her age. People comment all the time how good she looks, and would never guess she’s 25!
    She is also on the end of cushings that first ever became a hard keeper. So I add a daily mash of Timothy pellets, rice bran pellets, and her supplements to that and she loves her daily mix. I would definitely recommend giving them a try if your considering a holistic approach oppose to pharmaceuticals. Nice people to work with as well.

    Just wanted to say thank you.
    I was looking for an alternative to prescend for my mini mare and stumbled upon your Cushings natural supplement. I figured I’d give it a try. I thought a few years ago we’d be losing our girl, the suddenly over the winter went from a chunky monkey to a skeleton. She was eating 6-8x what my senior full size horse was eating and still losing weight. When the vet said Cushings I was shocked. We started the prescend and it was like a different horse, her love of life came back from the shell she’d become. The cost of prescend on top of the medications for my pre-laminitic horse were squeezing me too much. Then I found you guys and figured it was worth a try. This is the first spring she hasn’t had to be shaved since her diagnosis! She looks amazing, and is her normal spunky self! Thank you so very much for making it affordable to keep my girl comfortable and happy. From Sweetie and I, thank you.

    How well the Cushings Free treatment works was best illustrated when my senior horse was off of it for a week, while I was on vacation. Although he was well-taken care of, his Cushings treatment was overlooked. In just a week, he was lethargic and had difficulty walking. He improved almost immediately as soon as his Cushings Free Naturally was resumed.

    Just wanted to give you an update on my review from last year on your Cushings Free Naturally. I’ve been using it for 7 months and my horses ACTH level went from 70 down to17.5 which is amazing results,! I’m going to try your supplement for insulin problem in the same horse. My expectation is high!

    I am thrilled with this product! My horse was not responding well to Prascend and my Vet wanted to increase the dosage. After a little research I found your website and the protocol for transitioning from Prascend to Cushings Free Naturally. We are now fully switched and the difference is just unbelievable. I have my old horse back! All the Cushing’s symptoms are gone and he has the spark back in eyes. I am forever grateful!

    I never had a problem with pansend. She has been on it for a little over a year now. It just got so expensive. Its only been a few weeks of using the Alternative and it seems to do as well as pansend just not as expensive. Its hard to give a definate rating at this short of time being used. Hopefully it works as well or better. I will know probably after using it for a longer period. Thank you

    The “Cushing’s Free Naturally” blend has allowed us to have success in getting off pergolide/prescind completely, and he continues to do and look better. If you know how the body works you know that the adrenals are a huge part of this process. I have added the Adrenal blend, you should too. It has contributed to us overcoming this ailment. I am confident that one day soon we will be completely free of PPID and it is thanks to Alternative Animal.

    I have been extremely pleased with Cushings Free Naturally. When Doimas started looking like a giant Persian cat, I knew before the bloodwork he had Cushings. Add one more problem for my poor guy.
    I didn’t want to use drugs for his condition and started grazing the internet. Found you all. Thank God!
    He began shedding out in record time. I’m watching him closely and your product is working spectacularly.
    I’m going to try your hoof supplement next. Currently give Doimas and my mare both Circu-Flow.
    My three horses are my children. Delivered them all at birth. Doimas will be 22 in May.

    I put my under weight, non shedding,low energy riding mare on your product about 5 weeks back.
    She has shed off like normal, has her energy back to her pre-Cushings and where she had been dripping with sweat with normal trail riding, she is now back to normal there as well.
    I had resigned myself to her being retired and I’m so pleased with her present condition.

    I will b sharing this information with my Vet as well.

    I will certainly suggest using this product to everyone I know with a Cushing effected horse.
    It is so nice seeing my 20 year old friend feeling so well.

    My foundered cushings rehab, he was nearly dead when i got him. I’m not exaggerating. He is a slaughter starvation cushings founder rescue. He was a skeleton.
    He is getting the Cushings Free supplement, the Circu-Flow supp, The Herbal Bute, the Better Hoof supp.
    He’s now gaining weight and his coat is smooth and shiny. He has major pep and is shedding!

    I have been using your Cushings Free Naturally for 2 months for my mare. My Vet had her on Prascend before that and she wasn’t doing well at all. After just 2 months with your product she is shedding naturally for the first time in years, and her ACTH levels are now in the normal range. I am thrilled! It’s like I have my mare back! My Vet is amazed and said to keep using it. So glad I found your website!!!!
