Re: Numbers just in should I increase Pergolide for Pabatsa?

The group's experience has been that to minimize laminitis risk the horse's ACTH should be well within normal range going into the seasonal rise and any rise minimized. He's already above normal in an early August sample with peak not coming until end September. This is especially important for horses with a history of fall laminitis, which he doesn't have but there's no way to say for sure it couldn't happen. There is no rule for how much to increase but usual increment is 1 mg. Discuss with your vet.
