Re: Pergolide in non IR Cushings Horses

Hi Cheryl,

That would depend on the horse's age and the timing of the laminitis bouts. If they happen during the seasonal rise, that would be a red flag that maybe the horse is early PPID. You could do TRH testing (NOT during seasonal rise period) to get a better picture of the PPID aspect.

Do you mean the insulin and ACTH values are within the labs reference ranges or are they truly "normal"?
