Re: Whippoorwill Amulet (Bounce) - ACTH test results and radiographs

Hi Ruth,

>.  He has been on a pergolide (5mg/day) prescription since last November as a precaution.  

Here's a clickable link to Bounce's CH:

Just to clarify is he actually getting 5.0mgs of pergolide? Could it be 0.5mgs, by any chance?

I wouldn't feed Podium to a horse I suspect of being IR (or even one not suspected of being IR,actually).
The fat number is higher than we recommend,at 8%. It also contains molasses, oats, soybean meal - my memory has timed out, but these are not good ingredients for an IR horse.
