I have two horses diagnosed with this, a 15 yr old Fjord and a 24 yr old mustang who also has cushings.
The vet was treating them with doxycycline, the Fjord had many problems with this medication and was changed to injections of ampicillin, which he also had troubles with.
What would you suggest as a treatment for this illness. We are from Mass, I have not heard of many cases of this here. Plus I don’t really understand what it is. Both are off the meds, Mustang finished hers and the Fjord could not tolerate any meds. Is there a better more natural way to treat this?
There is no natural specific treatment but what you can do is support the immune system and the gut. For this I would suggest our Aller Check supplement and our Gut Check supplement. I would also put them on our Bug Check to help keep the bugs off in the future.
These are all fine for the Cushings horse as well. I would highly suggest our feeding program for each too. go to www.whattofeedyourhorse.com getting off commercial feed is in my opinion the best thing you can do for any horse, especially one with cushings or if you wish to help prevent such issues… commercial feeds are just full of junk. enjoy the articles videos etc. in the library section. You can also do a search on this site using the search box at right and search for other answers and past situations with others.
Thanks for asking Jody
