Prascend is the first licensed medicine for the treatment of clinical signs associated with PPID in horses (Equine Cushings Disease). Prascend is supplied as small tablets and has been used for some time to treat Cushing's Disease in horses.
This is a hormonal disease where the pituitary gland in the brain fails to work properly, resulting in an overproduction of natural steroid hormones in the body. This gives rise to a variety of clinical signs, the most common being a longer, paler, and curly coat.
Affected horses often appear depressed and lose weight despite seeming to eat more. They often drink and urinate excessively too. Cushing's disease results in a depressed immune system, so parasite infestations and bacterial infections often develop.
Cushing's disease is seen most often in older ponies. Vets can perform blood tests to confirm the diagnosis. Prascend is unable to cure Cushing's disease, but it helps to control symptoms and improves the quality of life. Prascend tablets need to be given daily for the rest of the horse's life.
