How can you cure cushions?

How can you cure cushions?
There is no cure for Cushing's. However, for the most part, it can be managed with medication and husbandry. Things like clipping the horse, keeping weight low, keeping teeth and feet up to date, and feeding for laminitis (which is high risk) will keep the horse comfortable and ensure a better quality of life.

Laminitis and infection are two of the biggest risks with Cushing's, so keeping on top of their feet and minimising the risk of injury (yeah, I know, that's pretty much impossible) is the primary concern.
