Serum cortisol concentrations were measured in five healthy dogs in response to five adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) preparations. Cortisol concentrations were similar at time 0 (pre-ACTH) and at 30 and 60 minutes after injection of all forms of ACTH. However, at 90 and 120 minutes post-ACTH, serum cortisol concentrations were significantly lower following injection of two compounded forms of ACTH. The data showed that injection of four compounded forms of ACTH caused elevations in serum… CONTINUE READING
