    Default Cost Estimates for CNM, CERF, etc.

    Just out of curiousity, can someone give me some idea about the costs for CNM, EIC, OFA, CERF, etc.

    Thanks

    Depends on your vets. Around me OFA Elbows and Hip with anesthesia runs about $400, CERF, CNM and EIC about $200 each. Total about $600.

    Add in another $150 or so for PRA testing by Optigen too. A heart clearance isn't a bad idea either.

    Remember that CERFs are only good for one year and many clubs recommend CERFing annually thru age 10.

    I will agree with yardleylabs, it really depends on vet costs. I paid around 280 for ofa hips and elbows, plus OFA fee of 40. EIC can be done your self to save a few on vet visits. 60 for CERF near me in VA. CNM is down in price which is good for this year. BUt his estimate of 600 is a good starting point, unless you add the tests Windycanyon said.

    I thought CNM was the one that could be done by the person (cheek swab). And EIC had to do blood draw with Vet certification for the results to be registered.

    CERF clinics are usually a good place to do the eyes for about $30-$50 per dog.
    EIC and CNM cheek swabing is free for me, just the cost of the shipping at test which is about $70 each.
    Hips/Elbows is about $350 including OFA costs.

    They can still be registered you just get a different type of registration number. I have done mine with swabs myself, they provide guidelines as far as separation to avoid contamination.

    You can now do EIC with check swabs by yourself just like CNM. You just get a PI or NoPI number instead of PIV.
