Cost is a cop out.
Our club holds a clinic twice a year, and we offer everything except DNA testing.
Eyes: $39 + $7.50 OFA clinic rate = $46.50 annually
Heart (auscultation): $57 + $7.50 OFA clinic rate = $64.50 (once)
(Echo: $195, but I paid $150/each for 2 at the National Specialty last year)
Hips + Elbows: $180, no anesthetic, and Dr Bouillat does a very good job. + OFA fee $40 = $220.
So hips, elbows, and heart (ausc) are less than $300. ONCE. Even if you did the echo at our clinic, it is $415, and then less than $50/year.
