Re: Feeding beet pulp

Sherry Morse

Hi Anette,

Without a case history it's going to be difficult to answer any questions about Superman.  Loss of weight and topline does indicate PPID; but what was his actual test result?  When was he tested?  How old is he?  What is his current weight?  What is his ideal weight?  What is he eating besides oats and beet pulp?  The recommendation for feeding oats and beet pulp is for IR horses who are having issues maintaining weight while in work.  For a PPID horse we normally would recommend an increase in forage, not concentrates. 

Did you mean that you asked your vet about the TRH stimulation test?
