Re: ACTH 77

Your ACTH is  twice over the normal range.  We are in the seasonal rise so Dedona’s  ACTH will go even higher.  Your vet is right suggesting you increase the pergolide for this part of the year.   You can have some capsules made that are 1.5 mgs so you give one pill during the rise.   I don’t think you’ll ever know if the barn staff is causing the problem.   IF Sedona was mine,  I would err on the side of caution and increase her pergolide for the rise.   Is there a barn mate you trust that visits his/her horse regularly that you could trust to give your mare her medicine?   Just thinking out loud...........
