Treatment

The first licensed medicine for the treatment of clinical signs associated with PPID in horses is now available in the UK and Ireland. This treatment, available from your veterinary surgeon, acts directly on the dopamine-producing neurons in the hypothalamus, helping to normalise hormone secretion from the pituitary into the bloodstream.
