What changes were noticed: Mud has boundless energy on Prascend® (pergolide tablets). He can keep up with the gaited horses we trail-ride with easily! Mud is a mounted police horse with the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, and he is able to complete six-hour shifts with ease! My vet, Dr. Renton, often has students from Michigan State accompany his barn calls. The students find it incredible that Mud is 22 with PPID. I do not have to body-clip him in the spring anymore. He sheds his winter coat like a horse without PPID! PRASCEND has enabled Mud and I to enjoy the trail rides and duties that we both love so much. With continued treatment with PRASCEND, I hope that he and I will continue to enjoy them for many years to come!
