How PPID Affects Horses

Pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID), also referred to as equine Cushing’s disease, is one of the most common endocrine disorders in horses.3 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 delayed shedding to loss of muscle mass.

DIAGNOSING
We Can ID PPID

PPID can often go undiagnosed. Because PPID has reportedly been identified in 21% of horses over the age of 15, it was once believed to be only an old horse disease.3 But PPID can affect any horse, and in rare cases, horses as young as five years old have been diagnosed.4 In fact, PPID affects male and female equines, and is seen in many breeds of horses, including ponies.
