Prascend (Pergolide) 1mg for Horses
Prascend (Pergolide) 1mg for Horses is for the treatment of pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID, equine Cushing’s disease) in horses.
Prascend is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.
It is a pink, rectangular scored tablet and is supplied in 1mg tablets, either individually or in packs of 60 or 160.
What is PPID? Pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction is one of the most common diseases of the endocrine system. It causes the horse's pituitary gland to over work and can lead to a variety of problems. These problems can include laminitis and abnormal fat deposits. PPID can affect both male and female horses, all breeds and any age above 5.
Prascend is to be used orally and to be given once daily. To prepare the medication, dissolve tablet in a small amount of water, molasses or other sweetener and administer with a syringe. Do not crush the tablets.
The dose for the medication is as follows:
200-400kg - 1/2 tablet daily
401-600kg - 1 tablet daily
601-850kg - 1 & 1/2 tablets daily
851-1000kg - 2 tablets daily
Prascend is a long term treatment but clinical improvements are expected to be seen after 6-12 weeks. If this is not the case, the dose can be increased by 0.5mg (1/2 tablet).
Do not use Prascend in horses under 2 years of age.
This medication is not recommended to use in lactating horses.

This is the first time I have bought from Pet Drugs Online. The prices are good and the service excellent so I will use again.
Had the goods, the price and the 'free prescription'service. The latter was hassle free (after the receptionist was helped by a vet!)
First class service. I use Pet Drugs on Line for prescription medicine for my dog. Always receive confirmation of dispatch either same day or next working day from order. Great customer service who resolved issue quickly; they even contacted me to check quantity of one tablet on order, as I had order 3 rather than 30.
Having only just started my cat on the royal canin she is still getting used to it, she seems to like it, I would have liked to have had more flavours.
On 03 Dec 2016 Pet Drugs Online responded:
Many thanks for your feedback, glad to hear that your cat is getting used to the renal diet. Most cats do seem to like the renal food but some prefer certain flavours chicken being one of the favourites. Prescription diets aren't always the most palatable as they do a specific job and have not got any bad things which can make your pet eat them more readily, sometimes if you warm the food slightly that can make the food more palatable and this will also give off more aroma
Site very easy to use and delivery very prompt.Big savings on prescription drugs compared to vet prices.
The required medicine was easily found and ordered. Arrived promptly and in good order. Cheapest I could find and free shipping too.
