Re: best time to test acth and insulin

Hi Vicky,

The only way to know for sure would be to give him a single 1mg a day dose and then retest his ACTH in 3 weeks and see what it is.  Since we are currently heading into the seasonal rise I would not be willing to take that risk with my horse. 

As far as changing the dose to once a day I would just give him the 2 pills at once and if you think he is experiencing a veil you can add APF and go down to 1.5 for a few days and then go back to 2 pills.
