FREE ACTH lab fees for Equine Cushings Disease (PPID) testing
Currently ACTH lab fees for horses and ponies are free providing the animal has not previously been diagnosed with the condition/is not on treatment.
Equine Cushings Disease (PPID) is a condition that involves enlargement of the pituitary gland which secretes increased levels of the hormone ACTH causing clinical signs including hirsuitism (long curly coat), laminitis, fat pads above the eyes, increased urination, increased drinking, recurrent infections and lethargy.
Cushings Disease is diagnosed with clinical signs and a blood sample to test the levels of the ACTH hormone.
The condition is usually able to be well controlled with medication.
