Vetoryl Therapy Control (2 x cortisol)

LABOKLIN Service ID: 1325


serum 2 x 0.5 ml


2 x cortisol




1 day


  • For monitoring Vetoryl treatment on day 28 in case of hyperadrenocorticism.
  • Determination prepill and postpill: before and 3 hours after the administration of the pill
  • The determination of 2 x pre-pill is especially recommended for animals in which previous therapy monitoring pre- and post-pill did not produce sufficiently clear results and if fluctuations before pill administration are suspected.
  • If the time of taking the pills has to be changed because of the blood sampling, it needs to be done at least one day in advance.
  • Separate cortisol reference values apply for monitoring Vetoryl (pre-pill: 14 – 50 ng/ml, post-pill: 14 – 23 ng/ml).
  • Not suitable for patients in poor general condition and for animals from which blood cannot be sampled stress-free. In these cases, the ACTH stimulation test is still recommended.
