Jake was admitted due to a relationship breakdown, and we were a little concerned about his health upon admittance. After bloods were taken by our vet, it was confirmed that Jake had Cushing’s disease. One one of the symptoms of Cushing’s is an increased coat length, (which can sometimes appear curly), weight loss and excessive drinking and urinating. Jake has been prescribed medicine and the difference in him is amazing, he has so much more energy and has put on wieght. Cushing’s disease is not a death sentence; despite the fact that there is no cure, there are several management practices that can keep an affected horse in good health for many years following diagnosis. Jake has just finished his quarantine period so has been introduced to some of our other horses and ponies, and has taken a shine to our Arab mare, Sorrel !! He has a sweet personality and is very gentle, he would make an ideal companion for another horse.
