Signs of Cushing’s Disease in horses include a long, curly coat (hirsutism); increased drinking & urinating; depression; muscle wastage (pot belly) & sweating. Horses with Cushing’s disease are also much more prone to laminitis (90% of Laminitis cases are due to hormonal imbalances- either Cushing’s disease or Equine Metabolic Syndrome). In addition, as their immune systems are suppressed, they are more prone to infections, eg foot abcesses & parasitic infestations (worms).
