Re: Insulin and ACTH results

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

There was one study showing that excitement during blood sampling does not influence ACTH. However, many horses that act up during blood draws do it because they know they can get away with or because of an aggressive personality, which is different from fear or excitement so the answer is there is no answer to your question!

Have you seen any external changes like more fat deposits, harder or bigger crest, less spontaneous activity?
