Between 2012 and 2014, 32,000 horses and ponies have been investigated for Cushing's disease (also known as PPID) through the Talk about Laminitis initiative (by Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica). Results have shown that you should look out for any of these clinical signs:

  • Laminitis (previous or current episodes)
  • Muscle Wastage
  • Abnormal moulting or delayed moulting
  • Fat (puffiness) around the eyes
  • Increased drinking and urinating

If your horse or pony has any of these symptoms, talk to us about testing for Cushings disease today.

Cushing's disease is a commonly diagnosed condition, and while it cannot be cured its symptoms can be treated and managed.

Testing your laminitic pony or horse will help identify if Cushing's is at the root of the problem. This can then be treated to help reduce the risk of further laminitic episodes.

Oakhill blood sampling fee, postage and usual visit fee still apply. Available from 1st June 2017 - 31st October 2017.

If your horse is younger than 10 years and you are having trouble generating a voucher code, please speak to us.
