What changes were noticed: Guapo was diagnosed prior to Prascend® (pergolide tablets). He was prescribed compounded pergolide, and even on that, we struggled to maintain his weight and topline. He seemed to have mood swings and erratic behavior. The kids had to stop riding him. When PRASCEND came out, Dr. Black had us switch, and the difference was night and day in his attitude. He shed out normally, and we are able to maintain his weight and topline. We even started riding Guapo again. We got our handsome old man back!

Important Safety Information: PRASCEND is for use in horses only. Treatment with PRASCEND may cause loss of appetite. Most cases are mild. Weight loss, lethargy and behavioral changes also may be observed. If severe, a temporary reduction of dose may be necessary. PRASCEND has not been evaluated in breeding, pregnant, or lactating horses and may interfere with reproductive hormones in these horses. PRASCEND Tablets should not be crushed due to potential for increased human exposure.
