Therapeutic Drug Tests

  • Digoxin
    A digoxin test is ordered by your doctor to monitor the level of drug in your blood. The dose of digoxin prescribed by your doctor may be adjusted depending on the level measured. Your doctor will want to monitor the level of digoxin at regular intervals to ensure that a therapeutic level is maintained and that toxic levels have not been reached and will not produce symptoms of toxicity.
  • Dilantin
    Formal name: Phenytoin, A Dilantin test is ordered by your doctor to monitor the level of drug in your blood. The dose of Dilantin prescribed by your doctor may be adjusted depending on the level measured. Your doctor will want to monitor the level of Dilantin at regular intervals to ensure that a therapeutic level is maintained and that toxic levels have not been reached and will not produce symptoms of toxicity.
  • Fructosamine
    Fructosamine testing is used primarily as a monitoring tool to help diabetics control their blood sugar. fructosamine testing allows the effectiveness of diet or medication adjustments to be evaluated after a couple of weeks rather than months
  • Glucose Blood
    Blood glucose testing is part of a regular physical, or when your pet has symptoms suggesting hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia, and during pregnancy; if your pet is diabetic, glucose levels should be tested daily to monitor blood glucose levels.
  • Phenobarbital,
    A doctor orders the test to measure and monitor the amount of phenobarbital in the blood and to determine whether the drug level is within a therapeutic range. A doctor may order the test every few weeks when you first begin giving the drug to your pet to help adjust the dose so that there is the desired level in its blood. Afterwards, the doctor will probably order the test at regular intervals. If you begin giving your pet another medication, your doctor will likely order more monitoring because phenobarbital interacts with several other common drugs. Phenobarbital might increase or decrease a specific drug’s effectiveness, and that medication may also affect the level of phenobarbital in the blood.
