Choice 1 – Choose the price range you have paid
Choice 2 – Choose whether the test was performed by a IMS (Internal Medicine Specialist) or a GP (General Practitioner Vet)

Harley's full adrenal panel done in November 2009 cost $235.00 but at that time his GP's office was using the Acthar gel as their stimulatory agent.

They have since stopped using the Acthar gel as their stimulatory agent completely and are now using Cortrosyn, so I image the cost of the full adrenal panel will rise some.

Love and hugs,

I paid $350 for Corky's adrenal panel, which was only $100 more than I pay for his stim tests. His IMS uses Cortosyn for both of them.

We paid $155 US dollars plus 60.00 to have Zoe Claires blood sent Fed over night from British Columbia Canada to UTK and that was for a full adrenal panel and well worth every cent. It is nice to know that there is a place in the world that does this kind of blood work. Our vet only charged for the Dexamethasone which was not very much.
