OFA eye/heart exams?
I've been calling around and there's a $50+ variation in costs, but even the low end is much higher than I expected...
When my older dog has been done at health clinics in the past, it's been around $70-80 for both, but every vet I've called, has been much higher PER test... and it's actually surprising. I knew health clinics got a good deal, but I didn't expect that much of a difference.

Gee! In my area the cardiac cerf (with a board certified cardiologist) at a university was I think like $35 at the most. Of course I think it was like 15 or 20 to send it in. The eye cerf was even cheaper at $28. Was not too bad

Argggg I called the university here.... maybe I talked to the wrong person? Maybe I asked the wrong questions? ("Do you do OFA eye and heart exams? What days are those done? What is the approximate cost?")
Eye Care For Animals, Akron, OH conducts monthly CERF Clinics at our facility. Exams are done by Dr. Mark Bobofchak, DVM, DACVO. Cost is $32 for the 1st dog and $26 for each additional dog. Please call 330-670-1300 for an appointment.
I called and asked and apparently this is old info. Now it's $145 for the first dog and $26 for the 2nd+.
What??? *eyes bug out of head* That's quite a jump in price.
I don't know if this is helpful at all..
