Vetoryl Therapy Control (1 x cortisol)

LABOKLIN Service ID: 1326


serum 0.5 ml


1 x Cortisol (before pill administration)




1 day


  • For monitoring Vetoryl treatment on day 28 in case of hyperadrenocorticism.
  • 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.
  • An additional determination of cortisol 3 hours after the administration of the pill can further facilitate the analysis (see Vetoryl Therapy Controll 2 x Cortisol).
  • 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.
