Dental work


Any precautions on sedation for a horse with high insulin?  I started metformin again on 3/13, dental work is scheduled for 4/15.  I have a blood draw scheduled for 4/7 so I should know where he is at before the sedation.

You're not likely to have a problem, but if insulin or ACTH was really high I'd put off the dental.
