There is a discount for most of the health testing if you sign up by August 1st. More importantly, they need to know the numbers of people who want health testing done because there has been some talk of canceling this due to low numbers so far.

There is a little confusion on the cost of the microchipping. It is listed at $25, but I think it is only $19.95. - Kimberly

Thanks for posting Kimberly, I am not going to the show but think this is great info for people who are going and prices are usually so much better at shows.

Well, the health testing is now cancelled. The reason given is that veterinarian's office cancelled because there were not enough signups early enough for them to justify closing their office.

The communication on this has been confusing. If I understand it correctly, all the health testing EXCEPT for CERF has been cancelled. They still need more people to sign up for CERF, so please do that right away if you intend to get that done.

I'm waiting for one more confirmation to make sure this is the correct info.

OK, the final confirmation came through. Only CERF is available now. The thyroid, cardiac, h/c/p, BAER and micro-chipping were all cancelled.
