Test for Parathyroid Hormone Related Protein (PTHrP) No Longer Available

The Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health (DCPAH) at Michigan State University recently announced that the reagent for their parathyroid hormone related protein assay (PTHrP) is no longer available.

Currently, Michigan State University's DCPAH is the only laboratory that offers this particular test used in the workup for dogs and cats with hypercalcemia. They are looking in other assay reagents and will hopefully will be have this important assay up and running again soon.

See the DCPAH website at for more information.
