Quantification of testosterone can be very useful for diagnosing reproductive conditions such as cryptorchid testicles and testicular remnants. It is less useful for diagnosing steroid secreting tumors, such as granulosa cell tumors. Test values falling in the equivocal range (0.01 – 0.10 ng/mL) should be followed up with additional testing. Additional tests available are hCG response test (any species) GnRH response test (dogs and cats), estrone sulfate for horses 3 years and older, and AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) for any age horse, cat or dog. Samples drawn outside the normal breeding season for any species should involve one of the additional tests listed, as many males' testosterone levels will drop to castrated levels outside the breeding season. print See Supplies for diagnostic supplies and shipping materials to meet your specimen needs.
