Re: New Diagnosis - 13yr old Gelding with PPID


Hello Laura

Nothing to add here, in terms of magic bullets, but from your descriptions and the numbers you've provided I'm wondering if his general symptoms (which read very much PPID) prompted you test him or a "laminitic episode" of sorts?

For you I would hope that perhaps his ACTH could have been a little elevated for other reasons (unlikely) but barring that it hope he has a good response to pergolide. It'll be comforting for you to see his numbers decline.
