I would really like some hints for my horse who has Cushings. What can I do for her? Please help, she looks awful. Karen

The best course of action to take if you suspect your horse has Equine Cushings Disease (also known as PPID) is to contact your local veterinarian. Your veterinarian can discuss the history of your horse, perform a clinical exam and discuss blood tests to diagnose Equine Cushings disease. The common clinical signs of Equine Cushings Disease include a hairy coat (i.e. hirsutism), increased drinking and urination, and laminitis.  Once a diagnosis has been made based on the history, clinical signs and blood results, treatment for Equine Cushings Disease can be started.
