Depending on where you are, they could be less than $300 for all of them on up to way more- but whether a breeder or not, if they breed a litter they ARE breeding and doing it less than responsibly is irresponsible.
If you list your state, city, we can look up the nearest ophthalmologist and cardiologist for you- and depending on where you are, may know of a good OFA vet to do hips/elbows. Figuring they'll sell their puppies for over $1000, it'd cost them one puppy's price to do both dogs and then they can feel like they've covered their health bases. If they find that one of them does not pass something, well, they shouldn't breed them anyway and finding out beforehand will save all the humans and puppies involved lots of heartache and possibly pain. And if one of their two dogs has dysplasia or an eye or heart disease, it'd be a good thing for their beloved pet to know that on the front end so that they can fix or treat whatever it is.
