Group Description

The ECIR Yahoo group provides a place for everyone who has a horse with Cushing’s Disease and Insulin Resistance in their care to share experiences, pass along veterinary knowledge, review the latest research, offer advice, and help each other. With effective diagnosis, recognition of symptoms, dietary changes, correct trim and exercise, these special horses can live a more healthy life.

Because of the HIGH MESSAGE VOLUME, we recommend you to choose to receive messages in Digest Format or Web Only when subscribing to the list.

Founding member Robin initiated this list for her partner of more than 30 years -- the awesome little mare "Night Flight" (Tina). She was diagnosed with Cushing’s in 1994. and passed from unrelated causes at age 31+ while out enjoying the pasture.

Please start by taking a few minutes to read the files found here (you need to be a member to read them):

Copy and paste the Tiny URL into your browser.

These are short but will provide a basis of learning about the ECIR and what is recommended. Post any questions you have to the list. If you are a member from outside North America, please let us know. We have additional files to help you get started.

If you are in a really desperate situation, please post directly to the list. As you can, taking the 20 or 30 minutes to read the above files and entering your animal's data in the Case History file will help speed things up considerably.

Following the ECIR Group protocol of Diagnosis, Diet, Trim + Exercise, with an ultimate goal of no laminitis, you can drastically improve your horse's quality and length of life. You'll be amazed at how much you learn in a very short period of time, so don't be intimidated by the detail you will find. As you become comfortable, you can help other members in turn and pass the favor forward.
