Clinical signs prior to PPID diagnosis:

  • Delayed shedding/Decreased shedding
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of muscle mass

Change noticed: Within 60 days

What changes were noticed: Ms. Sophie was a hot mess when Dr. Stanford came out to visit her. She looked dreadful. Her coat was dull and thick, she had never shed out, and she had lost a significant amount of weight despite being offered larger portions. Poor little Sophie, her head hung low, was bullied by her pasture mates. Since I had two horses already taking Prascend® (pergolide tablets), we decided that was the route to go. After about 45 to 60 days, Sophie was acting like her normal self! Wow! Although she still needed help shedding her coat, she was on the mend. She is doing 90 percent better and is much happier. I personally thank PRASCEND for making Ms. Sophie better! I now have four horses on PRASCEND.

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.
