Horse’s Age (at diagnosis): 24

Horse’s Current Age: 25

Breed: Thoroughbred

Clinical signs prior to PPID diagnosis:

  • Decreased athletic behavior and/or lethargy
  • Delayed shedding/Decreased shedding
  • Weight loss
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Recurrent infections

Change noticed: Within 90 days

What changes were noticed: Woodrow began to regain weight in his belly as well as his topline. Prior to Prascend® (pergolide tablets), he had lost so much muscle throughout his topline that he was sway back. Now, Woodrow has gained back muscle, and our farrier has remarked that his hooves are now in the best condition in all the years he has been shoeing him. Since PRASCEND, Woodrow is super shiny and full of dapples, which is not typical for horses of chestnut color. He certainly looks remarkable! He no longer acts like an “old man,” but instead has become quite sassy. PRASCEND has truly made a significant difference. I hope that PRASCEND will allow Woodrow and me to share several more years together, enjoying life through an unspeakable bond. THANK YOU, 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.
