What changes were noticed: Before I switched Frodo to Prascend® (pergolide tablets), he could barely stand, and would often lie down to eat. In fact, I had already contracted someone to dig a burial hole. Then, a new client told me about PRASCEND while showing me her very athletic and healthy 24-year-old Arab mare, which also had once suffered from Cushing's. As soon as I got home, I called Visiting Vet to order PRASCEND. A few days after taking it, Frodo was able to stand and take a few steps. Within a week, he was walking, within two weeks, he was trotting. A month later, he was cantering in from the pasture. He began to shed, his weight dropped, and the chronic laminitis and abscesses began to disappear. To me, PRASCEND has been a Godsend because it gave my back my beloved pony!

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.
