Re: OK to Test if Still Ouchy? WAS: Trim Review and Shedding Question

Thanks for the opinion, Kerry.  That's why I'm confused -- I would think pain would affect everything, the ACTH and the insulin.  So makes me wonder why he's in pain in the first place--is the ACTH not controlled enough to prevent a laminitis attack from eating through the fence?

It makes me wonder if I should experiment w/his Prascend dose before I test and then test in a few weeks after clinical symptoms subside to see where his numbers are at?
