The endocrine system is made up of several organs that produce hormones that control many functions of the body. In horses, endocrine disorders are quite common, and are diagnosed and treated frequently by veterinarians. In this episode, Dr. Martha Mallicote describes some of the more common diseases known to affect horses, including anhidrosis, equine Cushing’s disease and equine metabolic syndrome, and what horse owners should know to watch out for.
