As there is a discrepancy in the pricing between the MCOA site and the online cystinuria submission form I put in a call to Dr Giger @ UPenn to confirm the new cost of submitting a kennel of 11 mastiffs ( 3 dogs for retesting and 8 bitches ). Just wanted to make sure my check was made out for the correct amount. BTW I did learn there are no more discounts for litters or kennels. The rate is now $40 per dog no matter how many.
He just called me back and while we were talking he asked that I hold off on shipping any urine for the next two weeks. He said both he and Angie who runs most of our testing will be on vacation until the 24th of August. I told him I was kind of hoping to vaccinate my gang for Lyme disease today. And he said that was OK to go ahead and collect the specimens first and just pop it all in the freezer. But again he asked to hold off on shipping anything until they get back.
