Re: Percentage of Cushing's to get laminitis?
Maybe have your friend read about Cushings/PPID at the new and improved ECIR website:
It does mention that laminitis used to be the most common cause of death/euthanasia in PPID horses. Now that we understand more, it doesn't have to be if the horse is managed. Showing all the signs of Cushings suggests that his horse may be pretty advanced in the disease process and would benefit from appropriate care.
