Cushings Free Naturally- Natural Cushing’s Supplement 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 Cushing’s Disease ( PPID ), though not completely understood, is believed to be caused by high levels of cortisol and cortisol like hormones in the blood circulation.

Hi everyone! First I’d like to say I never leave reviews, and I was very skeptical about this product. I see lots of all natural things that just don’t work. However, this stuff really does! We put our Brabant mare on this in January 2023 and it is now May 2023. In January her ACTH level was 87.9 in May she is down to 49.6 we still have a little ways to go but my understanding is most check at a year so we will be checking again in January but I was very pleased to see this. It’s a little more expensive than prescend for our horse because she requires 4 scoops instead of 2 but I don’t have to fight with her to take her meds. Besides she’s too big for us to do so. I have to admit seeing natural medicines working makes me feel great and it’s absolutely worth the money!
Loving the natural products that have made a difference in my horses over health and happiness.
I am very satisfied with this product. My horse has improved. She did look like a teddy bear and now has slicked off and looks great.
Wow!!! this saved my mini horse!!!! she wouldnt take meds but ate this alaternate natural medicine
Very pleased with this product. My horse went from a level of 551 to reading normal at 27. He is one happy and healthy 22 year old! Thank you
