    I just wanted to add that Harley's stim agent was the gel and the cost was $125.50 by his GP, she also let me take him home after the first draw and bring him back for the second draw, I wanted to let the new members know that this is an option but you must ask your GP/IMS to do this (take your pup home and then bring them back.)

    Harley's GP now uses Cortrosyn as their stim agent and the cost was $158.35.

    Love and hugs.

    Corky didn't have the ACTH Stim test this month. He had the LDDS test done in the beginning of this month by his IMS. The cost for that was $203.25. This was done with Cortrosyn.

    I would also like to add that our vet charged $72.00 (several years ago) when using the Acthar Gel. That eventually increased to $95.00.
    She also used Cortrosyn for testing, and I think she quit using the Acthar Gel altogether at some point. Those stims (Cortrosyn) were anywhere from $110.00 to $150.00.

    $212.00 Columbus, Ohio.
    $95.00 is for sitting in their waiting room for 2 hours and 5 minutes with the IMS.

    The test was $140, but the price of Cortrosyn was $230. It seems really high.

    $275 for Rebel's stim, which seems really high to me.
