Description

Prascend is supplied as small tablets and is the veterinary licensed form of the drug pergolide, which has been used for some time to treat Cushing's Disease in horses. This is a hormonal disease where the pituitary gland in the brain fails to work properly, resulting in an overproduction of natural steroid hormones in the body. This gives rise to a variety of clinical signs, the most common being a longer, paler and curly coat. Affected horses often appear depressed and lose weight despite seeming to eat more. They often drink and urinate excessively too. Cushing's disease results in a depressed immune system, so parasite infestations and bacterial infections often develop. Cushing's disease is seen most often in older ponies. Vets can perform blood tests to confirm the diagnosis. Prascend is unable to cure Cushing's disease, but it helps to control symptoms and improves the quality of life. Prascend tablets need to be given daily for the rest of the horse's life.

Can prascend be safely prescribed alongside Bute? My 26 year old needs both!

Hi Frances,

Yes this is perfectly fine, they are often prescribed together.

I hope this helps.

Pergolide / Prascend

Pippa

I have a prescription for Pergolide / Prascend 1.5 tablets daily dose for administration to my horse. Do you ship to Ireland? Regards Pippa

  • Non-Executive Director

Yes as long as you send us the prescription, we can ship to Ireland. There is a flat fee of £10 for all medication exports out of the UK though, on top of the cost of the medication.
