Hi Sharon,

Bummer. It appears they did a resting cortisol test - which has no value in diagnosing/managing a PPID horse.

Definitely would recommend having the correct test done - ACTH - if you want to be proactive about managing any possible rise in her numbers. I would also respectfully request a refund on this round of testing as it was not what you had asked to be done.
