Cushings Free Naturally- 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.
