What Is Cushing’s Disease (Pituitary Dysfunction, PPID) In Horses – HorseTalk Webinar


The pituitary is a small gland at the bottom of the brain that regulates so many hormones in the body. Without it, the body of every mammal (horse and human) would become unbalanced and eventually destroy itself.

And it is only the size of a pea!

Join me for a discussion of what this tiny part does to horses, some ideas of mine as to why it often becomes broken, and why the term “Cushing’s” is a hot button for me.

The replay of this webinar is available to members of The Horse’s Advocate.

Members get more details in the Forums, Rounds, and AMAs and can add comments anywhere.
