Re: Jasper's Lyme Results

>>If Jasper (or a theoretical horse) has been definitively diagnosed with IR & PPID and is showing overt clinical signs of IR/PPID (PU/PD, foot soreness, insatiability, etc), and an effective pergolide dose has NOT been determined as yet, then why does the horse in the scenario NOT go on the Emerg Diet of soaked hay, etc, esp if he's showing laminitic symptoms?  Furthermore, why would this horse not STAY on the diet until IR symptoms satisfactorily abate?  That's what Im having trouble understanding.
