Hi Lavinia -
I tried it - when I click on the pics on my computer - and then open the pictures - nothing happens after that. The picture just sits there. If I right click on the opened picture, and then click on "open with windows",ect - it disappears for a second - but nothing gets loaded up - when I close out and click on the purple box - nothing happens - when I check the "photo" it says there are no photos.

Re: Baron and Prascend

Mandy Woods
 

Hi Kris,
Prascend is pergolide.   
Prascend is a tablet in a blister pack.  The drug is the same in compounded pergolide as Prascend.
Prascend costs a lot more than compounded pergolide.  It seems to average $2 a pill.
 
If your vet will write you a script ~ many of us use Pet Health. 1-800-742-0516    The web site is   www.pethealthpharmacy.com
 
You’ll pay about $30 for 30 pills at Pet Health.

Baron and Prascend

 

Hello group:

I am completely overwhelmed and cannot seem to sort through all the information.   I just want to know if I should give my IR/Cushings horse prascend or pergolide.  Please let me know or direct me to the appropriate information.  

Baron was just recently diagnosed with Cushings, via Cornell.   He is now on 1mg a day   


Thanks so much,

Hi Melanie,

I would hope he would understand. You can also print out the message I posted with the description of what the mark-ups are:

Re: ACTH results

Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

Hi Maureen,

Glad to hear she is feeling better. The lingering soreness could be due to the uncontrolled PPID, IR, trim or a combination of all of theses. I posted the Cornell results in McKenna's file:


https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/echistory8/files/Maureen%20and%20McKenna/


Did you also request Glucose, as that was not included? The dates on the report say the blood was drawn on 8/5 (Tues) but not received until 8/8 (Fri). Do you know when the sample was shipped?


When you plug her insulin value into the IR calculator McKenna comes up severe IR, laminitis risk. Check out the calculator here:


http://www.freil.com/~mlf/IR/ir.html


With that ACTH she needs to start/increase her pergolide dose. How much will depend on the form and whether she is already on the drug or not. We recommend compounded capsules. I would plan on at least a 2mg dose as you are battling the seasonal rise effects now as well as where the ACTH was already at. Need to titrate up to that dosage.


Can you post some current hoof pics for her?

Hi Kathleen

Thank you so much.

I did have the vet draw blood for iron on Aug 11. Since that goes to Kansas it take I think she said a week and half?? to get the results back. I will post it as soon as I do.

I am going to take him for hand walks with his softrides to provide him some exercise.

I do not have him on bute.

Do I keep him off of the bute?

Also other than dirt,you have to remember, if you make tea for yourself it is usually yellow or darker and many of those leaves are green .You are essentially making 'hay tea' when you soak .

Re: Soaking hay

Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

Hi Susan,

Yes, that is normal. Sugar is colorless but dirt on the hay is not and that is what you are seeing. If the water turns really dark, you might consider giving the hay a rinse before submerging it to soak so that you start the soak in clean rather than iron-rich water.

Re: Stormy - need advice on perg. dose, please

Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

Hi Teri,

Yes, it's probably a Neo thing on the link - although it did attach to your reply so who knows. When you have a moment, it would be helpful if you deleted the older history, as long as all the info in it is also in the updated version.


I'm with you on trying to wrap my head around a difficult case. One of my boys is currently on 16mg pergolide, which controlled his ACTH perfectly well during the rise last year but then his ACTH just started climbing again. At last check in April 2014, it was 225pg/ml (Cornell) and probably still climbing. That doesn't make sense as that is not a PPID driven rise. That was the same scenario as a year previous, when he had been on 12mg pergolide with solidly controlled ACTH during the rise but then lost it during the late winter and early spring.


His symptoms are an enlarged crest, more pu/pd and increased smegma production. His insulin and glucose are on the rise although diet is tight. But it doesn't appear to affect his attitude or soundness - yet. I'm terrified that laminitis is lurking around the corner.


I agree that as the base dose of pergolide gets higher, increases can be made more quickly and with larger increments, although my boy has never had an issue with pergolide veil. When I first tested him, his ACTH was 1088pg/ml. He went from no pergolide to 9mg in 6 weeks.


It's wonderful when you have a vet who will work with you and who trusts that you know your horse well enough to see changes that are red flags for trouble brewing. I am also lucky to have a vet that is willing to work with me.


You sound like you are extremely in tune with what Stormy needs. Obviously, frequent testing is the Gold Standard for monitoring status but that isn't always possible due to logistics and/or finances. We all do the best we can. Knowing your animal well is the best thing that you can do and is a legitimate substitute to use when balancing the costs and logistics with the need to provide top notch care.

Soaking hay

thelittlebarnonwhiteoakfarm@...
 

Hello to anyone who has to soak their hay.    I'm doing it for the first time and wondering  if it's normal for the water to be like a rust/pinky color after the hay has been soaked?   Is that the sugar leaching out or something else?

Thank you,

Re: ACTH results

Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

Hi Maureen,

Is she sweating? If not, she could be anhidrotic and overheating so that could lead to the wobbly walk.


How much loose, plain salt is she getting in her daily feed? With the heat she will have an increased need for it to supplement losses in sweat and to encourage drinking so she doesn't get dehydrated.


Cold hosing and fans are good.

Weird. Yahoo apparently picked up another subject line.\The 20 ppm was in reference to the upper limit for selenium on a hay analysis.
