This is from the lifetime supporters FB group- clarification from Morris Animal Foundation on the costs associated with the study:
I actually save money with the study- if we weren't in the study we'd pay an exam fee of $50, lab fees of about $150 to $200 for a cost of $200 to $250. With the study I pay an extended exam fee of $100, no fees for labs or nail trim which normally costs $18.80, plus I get $75 back from the study in the debit card. I pay only $25 for my Golden's annual exam."Morris Animal Foundation would like to acknowledge how much we appreciate your contribution to this comprehensive study and value the time you, your dog and your veterinarian will commit to this groundbreaking study. What individual veterinarians charge their clients is completely at their discretion. Antech Diagnostics donates the laboratory analyses and shipping costs for the study visits. However, this does not include the time and effort of the doctor and clinic staff to perform the physical examination, review the medical history, collect and process the samples and interpret the laboratory results. We encourage all owners to have a conversation about study costs with their veterinarian ahead of their appointment."
