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.
