Senior feed for a horse with Cushings?
We are caring for a 30-year old horse that has been recently diagnosed with early stage Cushings. We have been giving her senior feed because that is what her owner (who is very ill and cannot currently care for her) has been giving her for years along with orchard grass hay. The vet told us to double up on the feed we have been giving her because she is dropping weight. The current senior feed is a generic blend from a local feed store (their label). We are just wondering if there might be something better that still has a high calorie content. I am planning on calling the vet later this morning to ask, but I thought maybe there was someone on here who is knowledgeable on the subject as we are in unfamiliar territory.
We need to buy some today so any input is appreciated! Thanks!!
