Why is FDA approval important to you and your veterinarian?
Especially made for horses
FDA review and approval gives you and your veterinarian the peace of mind that your
horse is being treated with a drug that's designed specifically to work well
in horses (not for use in humans, dogs, etc). What's more, PRASCEND is
tested and labeled to treat the cause of various PPID clinical signs, such as laminitis
and shaggy hair coat that may be making your horse seem older than it really is.
When you treat the cause, not just the signs, you have a better likelihood of getting
Tested and Trusted
The FDA approval also means that PRASCEND has stood up to rigorous testing
to ensure that it is consistently manufactured and maintains stability. You can
be confident that independent scientists and FDA officials have reviewed study results
to make sure PRASCEND works as expected to help your horse improve.
Consistent Strength and Stability
In addition, the FDA approval means that only Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. can make PRASCEND. The PRASCEND brand of pergolide
you give your horse comes only from our state-of-the-art facilities, not from various compounders
that may produce pergolide inconsistently. This means you can count on each batch of PRASCEND to be the same high quality and to remain
at full strength through the expiration date listed on its packaging when stored properly per the directions on the
package insert (such as in a cool, dry place).
Why does this matter? Because PRASCEND is the same strength from batch to batch, so it's much easier for your veterinarian to prescribe
the correct amount of PRASCEND for your horse. Evaluations of each batch show that it is consistent, safe, and effective.
