Spring 2020 Breeders Health Clinic


Sat, 03/07/2020 - 06:00 to 15:00

Twice a year we offer a 1-day clinic where breeders can bring their dogs for health testing that we normally can't provide.  We bring in two specialists to help us with this: Dr. Adam King who is an eye specialist and does our OFA Eye Exams; and Dr. Heidi Kellihan who is a cardiac specialist and does our OFA Heart Exams and Echocardiograms.

Here is our full list of testing we offer at our Breeders' Health Clinic:

  • OFA Eye Exam - $70  (OFA fee not included)
  • OFA Heart Exam - Auscultation Only - $70  (OFA fee not included)
  • Echocardiogram - $280
  • OFA Thyroid to MSU - $160
  • OFA Patella - $40  (OFA fee not included)
  • OFA Hips - $203
  • OFA Hips & Elbows - $328
  • Taurine Test - $160
  • Semen Collection & Freezing - cost varies depending on services required  (base price for a first-time freeze is usually around $900)
  • Optimal Selection (previously OptiGen) - 15% off the regular price of test  you must pre-register online   discount code:  VETVILSPR20

Health Clinic Reminders:

  • Appointments will be scheduled once RSVP is closed.
  • Katie will try her best to accommodate everyone's requested times, unfortunately, it is not guaranteed due to the high volume of patients seen with multiple services occurring throughout the day.
  • Because we understand your time is as important as ours, to help keep the schedule flowing please understand the difference between a cardiac exam and an echocardiogram. Cardiac exams will only be an auscultation of the dog's heart.  An echocardiogram will be a complete ultrasound of the heart.  Whichever service you are scheduled for is what will be done.
  • OptiGen is now Optimal Selection.  Make sure you pre-register with them using our discount code above!

This is a very busy day with 200+ dogs coming through our doors.  PLEASE DON'T WAIT TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT!  We only have a specific number of openings for each type of test and registration will close for those when we are full.

RSVP by February 22nd so that we have time to get everyone scheduled.
