PPID (Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction)
“When Printer was diagnosed with PPID [Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction] the veterinarians told me that even with careful dietary management I would not see her ACTH levels fall within the normal range again. Ever. I already fed StableFeed’s Spirulina product to control allergies in my competition horse so I tried the Prickly Pear to see if it could help Printer. Her ACTH levels are within the normal range for the first time in four years! I can’t conceive of a reason I would ever stop feeding these products to my girls! StableFeed plays an integral role in keeping me happy and my horse’s healthy!”
