Re: How much does OFA cost?
I had an estimate for around $1200 for hips, elbows, thyroid, cardiac, and Von Wilbrand's disease on three bitches. I forgot about microchipping. They handed me a bill for over $1600 or 1800 and I like to have a stroke.
I was with a friend and she had done one dog. The place was closing.
I started negotiating anyway. Some of the stuff, they changed, some they called the doctor for, and he changed it. Well, anyway we whittled the bill down to just over 1300. My friend was proud of me. Still, it wasn't cheap.
Then they sent me everything BUT Tori's cardiac -- that took forever. And they got my name wrong, Errrgh. Whatever.
Really though if you are putting you pup under for hips, checking the elbows too makes sense. You can always do blood tests later.
