Since it is that time of year again, puppy season, and since I am breeding a litter this year, I thought that I would start a running tally of the expenses of breeding a litter.
To catch everyone up on the costs so far.
Health testing for 1 parent:
OFA Hip x-rays $75 + $30 OFA fee
OFA Patella Check $10 + $15 OFA fee
OFA Thyroid Panel $81 + $15 OFA fee
Fanconi Marker Test $60
CERF Exam $35 + $12 CERF fee for first time registration
Total for health testing 1 parent = $333
Usually you only have to pay for the health testing of the dog they own some of these tests do need to be repeated through out life but I am not going to throw those costs in.
Shipping costs for getting the girl here
Health Certificate $54
Shipping Cost $219.48
Total Cost $273.48
Cost of semen retrieval and transport $95
Progesterone Testing Costs $75/test x 4 tests = $300
So as of today I have a total of $1111.48
Will update tomorrow after I get the insemination bill.
