Re: ACTH Results seem too high - could the blood have been compromised?

Lisa, when you say the vet froze the blood for the ACTH test, was it after he spun (centrifuged) it? If so, that’s the usual practice, to preserve the sample while in transit. However, if he froze the blood without spinning, that could affect results—but the lab would have commented and probably rejected the sample. Do you have the actual lab report?
