Vet GP $351.00
IMS: $304.15

IMS also had a consult fee on top, but that was the test prices.

Oh my! I thought $160.00 was high. Although that was just the ACHT test.

Do you have a break down of your costs...and where are you from. Norman and I live in Sheboygan WI.

The first two ACTH tests I had done at the vet I paid a little over $300 US dollars - ouch! I have two different vets about 100 miles away from each other (because I was working in one place and living in another) and they were both around $300 USD

However, I just switched to UC Davis and just paid $170 and got my results within 24 hours.
Sticking with UC Davis!!

$305.30 (Australian) At internal medicine specialist. My normal vet quoted me originally $300 then next time quoted $340 (with consultation). No extra charges at IM specialist .
