There are vitamins that are suggested for cushings cases as well. It may be worth talking to the vet to see what they recommend.
^^ Yes! Absolutely NO ALFALFA, AND NO GRAIN ^^ Try to acquire 1st cutting timothy
(don't be alarmed that it looks almost 'straw-like') and feed nothing but that along with a loose mineral
- find one with no protein. This simple diet (with approval from your vet) would be helpful to your horse :)
