Question on Cushing symptom

Julie Davie

I’m looking at a mini as a companion horse.  The owner told me she gets a weepy eye which she assumed was allergies.  My friend said that this can be a sign of Cushings.  It appears to be just in the one eye.  I am going to have a vet examine her.  The owner said she sheds out in the spring.  Thank you!

Hi Julie,

The only way you can possibly tell is do blood work for ACTH.  Anything else would be pure speculation.

And definitely check for EMS/IR as this is a mini.
