Re: 21-year old pony starting Pergolide-Duffy's Test Results
Hi Eleanor -
Thank you so much for your help - he's been on the Pergolide since
this past Saturday - 1/4 tab per day - I'm adding another 1/4 tab
tonight and will gradually increase to 1 tab per day over the next
week or two to make sure there are no side effects. I will call
Ontario Dehy to see if I can get the timothy balanced cubes - he's on
the Ontario Dehy premium cubes and has been for the past year or so.
He is getting a small handful twice a day of Equine Sr., but just
enough so he eats the pergolide. Do I need to do the emergency diet
for his insulin?
Will keep everyone updated - thanks again -

insulin is so much higher if there haven't been any dietary changes,too.
being aggravated to the point he's at high risk for laminitis.
