Medical report on Sophie and Electra

Today 9/15/10 Dr. Hadland was out to examine Sophie and Electra.

Sophie has been diagnosed with Cushings Disease. She has all the classic signs. We are fortunate that she does not have laminitis. He has determined that Sophie is well into her years (VERY long in the tooth). The medications for the treatment of Cushings would cost MHR several hundreds of dollars per month. He stated he would like to go with a natural medication called Chasteberry (Vitex) 15g per day. Cushings is not curable, it can only be controlled. She is presently receiving a pelletized feed, along with Senior. He wants to add rice bran, for the fat content. She also receives hay for something to do. If anyone wishes to help Sophie it is greatly appreciated

In this section i will let Dr. Hadland speak on Electra.
