Re: Alternate drug to Metformin

Somewhere in the archives I believe somebody said that if you can be at the vet at least 4 hours before testing any effect on ACTH is fairly well mitigated.  Insulin is more sensitive and will take longer to normalize.  It doesn't matter how used to hauling your horse is, there's an increase in these hormones which will show up in test results.  That's one of the reasons we suggest having somebody local draw blood if your only option is to haul to a vet.
