Thread: What do you pay for an ACTH stimulation test? U.S. Dollars

    Bailey's first ACTH Stim test cost $180 but Cortisone injection was $250 = $430. Her subsequent ACTH Stim test cost $180 but Cortisyn injection was only $50 due to the vet being able to use less of the Cortisyn. Much better cost for subsequent testing.

    My error, I originally selected both $50 and $250 thinking this was the cost of the Stim test, but unfortunately my poll was placed under the $50 for ACTH Stim test which was really the cost of the Cortisyn injection of the 2nd Stim test. The actual ACTH Stim test itself was $180 each time not including Cortisone injection.

    I live in IL just east of St. Louis, MO. I pay $147. but I would expect yours to cost that for your area because I was just out in NJ at a friend's house and everything, not just vet stuff, was 2 times as expensive there, so I would expect vet costs to be at least twice as much too. Cost of living is less here, but obviously so are our salaries.

    $300 in Newport Beach Ca.
    I order vetoryl from California Pet Pharmacy on line. For my 80lb boxer on 120mg daily dose I pay $140 per month for the meds. From his vet it would be almost twice as much
