I agree, Maureen, getting the clearance for vWD is a big one. I was really concerned about that.
I just know that the biggest expense (for me) belongs to the PennHip testing...if they have bad hips, no need to test anything else...I'd hate to get a good test on all of the other things and find out hips are bad...it seems that hips are the major factor these days...all of it is important, though, so it is always a nice thing to cross the bridges along the way.
VetGen is a good test...I thought it was fun to see the color results too...although I wish that (for the price they charge) they would also identify the dillute gene and mention that as well. (For all of us with silver babies!)
