    Hi, I have a 31 year old Morgan that has been diagnosed with Cushings, diabetes, and insulin resistance. He's not supposed to get any sugar (molasses) or grain. He's lost a few molars but still eats alfalfa surprisingly well. I do think he needs some sort of senior or complete feed supplement...

    Hi all, sorry I've been away for awhile, school is crazy busy and my horse was just diagnosed with Cushings. :((((( Not going to lie I was sort of expecting it, and I'm actually relieved it's that and not something worse. My vet recommended Pergolide to control his symptoms, saying that...

    Hello everyone So I am working with a Paso Fino, that of course has Cushings. He is also prone to Laminitis. We are trying to figure out the best diet for him. He is on low sugar grass hay, but we are struggling with what else to feed him. Purina Wellsolve L/S is not really an option due to it...

    I have viewed a pony today that is perfect in every way for what I want. He does however have cushings disease which he takes half a tablet a day for. The seller says it is only mild and he doesn't need restricted grazing etc. He is up for £600 but I think this may be too much for an 18 year old...

    ALfie will be getting clipped this spring for the first since we got him and he has cushings. This will obviously take even longer for a clipping and I also want to do his fetlocks because theyre so long when it's muddy they get mud packs into them and are just gross. Are there professional...

    I posted recently about an older are we have who was acting weird. Well turns out she has cushings. We have her on a special diet, and on medication as well, we are also trying to keep her stress level as low as possible! From what I've read online and been told, about all you can do is keep...

    anyone know why it looks like the knee joint has come out of its socket but then pops back in again within seconds? it also twitches like little muscle spasms. doesnt actually seem to bother him or cause him any pain but makes him stumble, slip. Juke has cushings and arthritis. Tia :-|

    I have a 25 year old Thoroughbred Gelding. This winter he grew an unusually thick coat and people at my barn have been suggesting that he could have cushings disease. His coat was just long and thick, not so much curly and it has been shedding out. The coat underneath is starting to look pretty...

    Hi folks! I'm new to the forum so if I do any faux pas, please excuse me! I'm needing help with figuring out a diet plan for my early Cushing horse. I sold him 1 1/2 yrs ago & acquired him back a few months ago. He's a 16 yr old quarter horse gelding, was always a VERY easy keeper. The guy I...

    One of the trainers at my barn says she mashes up apples and carrots on occasion for the old mare, but I'd read a number of places that sweets, like apples, should be avoided when a horse has Cushings? (Read other places that some horses tolerate these fine and it's very individual.) I don't...

    I have a 11 year old friesian gelding. I bought him in December and in the spring his summer coat came it. It was a little thicker and longer then the QH's at the barn. I asked my barn manager and she said it was a friesian thing adn his dad is from Holland. But the other friesian at the barn...

    My pony Bart is around 20 years old. We think he is a shetland/quarter pony mix. I've had him since he was 12 and I was 8, so yea, he is 20. Anyways, a few years back a vet had mentioned that he might have been in the early stages of cushings but then he never mentioned it again so we passed the...
