What changes were noticed: Sugar Bear has not had a laminitic episode since he started Prascend® (pergolide tablets). He has lost his pot belly, and his topline has improved. He stopped sweating excessively and completely shed out for the first time in years. PRASCEND has been a miracle drug for him.

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.
