An interactive webinar on metabolic syndrome and Cushing’s disease in horses is the latest free offering in the “For the Love of the Horse” series created by The Competitive Equestrian.

Hosted by veterinarian Dr Phoebe Smith, the free interactive webinar “Metabolic and Cushing Syndrome — Understanding Symptoms, Treatment and Prevention” will explore the causes of metabolic disease and how to keep horses happy and healthy without putting them at risk.

If your horse is overweight and has suffered from intermittent bouts of laminitis, or been diagnosed with insulin resistance, he may be suffering from equine metabolic syndrome (EMS).
