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.

    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.

    So far so good! My horse has not had an abscess and has not been lame since starting the supplement! I had to take him off the prascend because he had a terrible reaction so I’m happy I was able to find something natural for him instead

    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!

    My horse was diagnosed with Cushings and I did not want to put him on Prascend so I started giving him this Cushings Free, and he has responded well to it so far! He is shedding out his shaggy coat like crazy, and I am hoping this winter he will grow a normal coat instead!

    So far I have seen anything in the transition from prascend, as we are just getting into shedding season we will see if she loses her winter coat like a normal horse or if she’ll need to be shaved.

    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.

    My horse had side and belly hairs left that should have been long gone. Rocky suggested this and within a week they were gone. I am excited to see next year if this will help him to shed out much faster. As he gets older, it takes longer and longer for him to shed.

    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.
    Thank you!

    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!!!!

    Cushing’s Free Naturally has been an unbelievable help to our horse. Our Hanoverian gelding was diagnosed with Cushing’s and was prescribed Pergolyde. The medication made him swell up terribly. He began feeling worse and worse til we had to discontinue the medication. I was desperate to find another treatment. I found your website and decided to try this product Cushing’s Free Naturally. When we first started giving it to him, he was lame and could barely walk from the constant pain. He gradually began to get better and better over the next few weeks and went from a completely lame horse, to a horse who is now back to work and training to be shown in dressage. He is a totally different horse now. He seems happy and is moving beautifully. We are just thrilled to have him back and free of pain! Thank you so much for your help. If we had not found this product I don’t know what would have happened to him. At the moment his Cushing’s symptoms are gone and I really can’t thank you enough for your help.
