Free Cushing’s Test :

If your horse or pony is prone to laminitis, it’s important to test for Cushing’s disease. 9 out of 10 laminitis cases are caused by an underlying hormonal disease. And despite the common perception that Cushing’s disease is solely a condition of older horses and ponies, new data shows that up to one-third of 10 to 15 year-olds may be affected.

The hugely successful ‘Talk About Laminitis’ initiative has returned. It’s designed to help you and your vet detect these cases, treat them and prevent future episodes.

From now to the end of October FREE blood test vouchers are available at:

http://www.talkaboutlaminitis.co.uk/.

The horse must not have been previously diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease.

Journey and take blood fees still apply.
