There are some tests that can be affected by hemolysis. Forgive me but I can remember off of the top of my head if the thyroid panel is one of them.

Has anyone here ever had a blood draw done for Hemopet's thyroid panel?
I just had it done today, and because my vet had never worked with/knew about Dr. Dodds and Hemopet, I took care of all the shipping and legwork myself.
The only thing that is concerning me, is when the blood was given to me it was hemolyzed. Which honestly, at the time of getting the sample and mailing it, didn't seem like an issue as nowhere did it state that this should be a concern or that I shouldn't send in a sample like this.
Now I'm noticing on a couple of places from their website (specifically the international shipping page), they are specifically warning against sending this in as a sample.
Has anyone done this, does anyone know if this is going to be a problem?
Edited to include: this is for the Profile 4/T4, he has already had a thyroid test and is on meds.
