Logan's PPID medication

Logan needs medication for his PPID. He is prescribed Prascend, is currently on 1 tablet a day and regularly blood tested by the vet to ensure the tablets continue to work effectively. The medication costs £170 for 160 tablets.

Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction (PPID), formerly known as Equine Cushing’s Disease is one of the most common diseases of the endocrine system that can affect horses. PPID causes Logan’s pituitary gland, which utilizes hormones to control his body functions, to work overtime.

Logan lives with a healing herd of horses near Meare in Somerset. To buy a book from this local cause please visit http://www.paintedhorse.org.uk
