Is there a "best time" to do the blood draw on a dog already on thyroid meds?

If same dog is on other meds, will that skew the results of a Senior Profile?

Thanks

If the dog is on twice a day supplementation then my local vet likes to see them mid day. I can't say for sure if other meds will affect the results but I don't think so.

For the thyroid (T4) - the sample should be drawn 4-6 hours after the pill is given to assure that you are on the right dose of thyroid medications. It should not affect any values on the Senior Profile.
