Question CERF Testing on Long Island ?

I need to get CERF testing for Benji and Lizzie. My vet recommended a vet opthalmologist who charges $115 per dog.

The CERF used to cost about $50-$75 per dog in San Francisco Bay Area.

I would appreciate any leads and recommendations from LI residents.

Thanks!

Best, Poornima

Poornima, is that the place in Plainview? That is the only one who does CERF testing in this area. Sometimes you will find a clinic where they charge $35 per dog. The only problem is that they are usually in PA or NJ. So by the time you pay gas and tolls, plus the time to drive there, it doesn't pay.

Poornima~ I just had Tori's done at the vet opthalmologist. His normal fee was $110 but, on the last Wed. of each month he holds a CERF clinic where it only costs $40. Maybe there's someone in your area who does the same?

I found this on the CERF website. Don't know how close it is to you, though.

Poornima, thanks for the info. I will check into it. I took Kodi to the one in Plainview but he is overdue for a test, as is Shelby.
