    Default Feeling kinda violated

    Vet called this morning with the exact charges for the EIC test.
    $205
    Let's see $65 to the U of Minn lab and $45 to Fed Ex. I'd say he made a little on that transaction...

    It doesn't surprise me. I am sure it is a PIA for the vet and staff, especially with the learning curve involved.

    Don't they do mouth swabs that you can send in yourself?

    $100 to the vet
    I used to work there. I know they save all the gel packs and boxes from the vaccines they purchase so that they can be re-used. So there was no cost there. And FedEx comes there to pick up the shipments.
    I got charged $100 for 10 minutes of his time (at the most), a syringe and a 3ml purple top tube.

    So, in your mind what would a fair fee be if that is all he did? Just curious.

    I was expecting him to charge about $50.
