Possible Addison's - too soon to test?

An_248643 posted:
my 10YO dog was recently on a course of pred for a pinched nerve in his back. Last dose of pred was 10/15 and yes, he was weaned down properly. Now is having terrible GI issues and current vet is thinking Addison's and wants to test. He's been so sick that I ran this past my previous vet where I used to live and he said he thinks his system is still suppressed from the pred and the test won't give a valid result since the last does wasn't even two weeks ago. thoughts? thanks!
