Were they quoting you for all 4 dogs? That price would be right for 4 of them.

Nope I only had 2 german shepherds when I asked. I asked if they did OFA's she then said yes once they are 2 years of age(which i know for the official ones they had to be at least 2). 1500 for the anesthesia they hold them for one night and 200 for the x-rays themselves per dog. My mouth about hit the floor.That's when I asked about prelims. Then after the appt i asked the lady at the desk what the prices were she told me the same. My husband about freaked.

Wow thatís crazy! Iíve never heard of keeping a dog overnight for OFAs. And $1500 for anesthesia??? Good grief. Iíll really try to see if I can get a recommendation for you up near Tulsa.

Iíve had several people recommend Dr. Patton at the Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital in Sapulpa. I can see if I can find another recommendation up in the corner of the state too.

Are we positive the vet wasn't getting confused with PennHip? OFA can generally be done under sedation, but PennHiP requires general anesthesia to get their images.
