How much did it cost to OFA/PennHip your dog?

How much did it cost to OFA/PennHip your dog? At the vet clinic I work at it's around $600 for the entire process under anesthesia. Just wondering if that's a fair price and what others are paying/charging.

UHHH WOW I am really glad I don't have the vets you guys do...

maybe its because you guys live in the city

I paid $150 for hips and elbows on my female when she was limping and i decided to get the extra hip and elbows on top of the limp.
it would only be the extra $35 it is to pay OFA

That's pretty spendy. A lot of dogs can be OFA'd without sedation, much less full anesthesia.

sadly thats the case around here. Going to the base vet is cheaper and far more honest than trying to go out in town because the vets will and often do rip you off. Same goes for its safer to go to the dealership if your vehicle needs service. Some places just really suck! Sadly base vet doesnt do the xrays to OFA.

It was $195 for hips/elbows under light anesthetic but no OFA on Madix. OFA is like $35 I think for them to send them in for me.

$176 for prelims (hips and elbows) $235 for certification (hips and elbows) that includes them sending the films to OFA.

Wow I guess I got lucky... Bianca was already OFA'd (hips and elbows) when I got her and if those prices are correct (they don't sound too far off for where I live) the fee I paid for her basically covered the OFA.

We have expensive vets in my area. The last three gsds and two of my other breed were 180.00 - 220.00 for just the hips add another 60.00- 80.00 for elbows.
