Fasting or not for insulin test?

florayg <jackiestaggandcats@...>

I've just arranged Dancing's second blood test for next week. The vet says for the insulin test she needs to be fasted for 10 hours. It says in the files here not to. Can anyone explain?
I'm going to be pretty peeved if he's wrong, because he was out today to my other horse lame and could have done the blood sample then but said he wouldn't as Dancing had been eating. So I'll be paying for another visit next week. And Kitty has a hoof abcess so now I have BOTH of them in *sigh*
