Rethinking the Signs of PPID

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 the horse’s pituitary gland, which utilizes hormones to control body functions, to work overtime. This can lead to a variety of problems for horses, ranging from unexplained laminitis to an abnormal fat deposits. PPID affects both male and female horses, all breeds and horses as young as 7 years of age.

The early clinical signs of PPID are more subtle compared to the advanced signs of the disease. That’s why knowing and recognizing these early signs is important. This webinar will present the recent research around the early and advanced signs of PPID and show how PPID is not just the signs that everyone initially considers.

Presenter: Steven Grubbs, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, Equine Technical Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc.
