Time to test?

Post by adajadesmom » Mon Dec 03, 2007 10:09 am

I'm wondering when it's time for Ada to be tested again.
She's been on her higher dose of PB for 3 weeks now (after blood test came back that it was too low)
And, she's been on KBR for 44 days now.

I'm going to change to another vet when I do the next test and will probably get the 6 panel thyroid done at the same time.

Thanks in advance!

KiKi was tested every month until the correct level was reached and then 6 monthly.

I was told by my vet every 28-31 days is a good measurement until levels are where they are wanted.

Thanks! I thought we were probably close to being due for one.
