Re: Just diagnosed PPID
As Lavinia points out, the particular hay analysis package you have doesn't reliably determine ESC+starch for equines with EMS. If the analysis is recent, you can contact Equi-Analytical to ask if the sample is still on hand in the lab. If so, the lab can add analyses for ESC and Starch by wet chemistry. You need your sample number.
If ESC+Starch turns out to be safe, the mineral analysis you have is fine for balancing the diet.
