Watch for early signs, and your horse's future should be bright.
When it comes to treating PPID, the earlier the better. The disease progresses slowly, so signs may be hidden at first, delaying diagnosis. Some lesser known, but commonly missed, early signs include delayed shedding of winter coat hairs, changes in coat color, increased hunger, loss of muscle mass, and unexplained laminitis.
Keep your eyes peeled for these and other signs. If you see any signs, get in touch with your veterinarian about care and treatment options. He or she may recommend immediate treatment for the best chance of getting your horse back to himself again.
When caught early, PPID treatment is very successful in reducing common signs and allowing affected horses to live normal lives.1 Even when a horse has an advanced stage of the disease, treatment usually leads to a longer, healthier life.1
