RE: [RC] selenium toxicity-cost of testing.... - Lori Bertolucci

About $45.00 is about what I was thinking I had paid in the past...so over $100.00 seemed excessive to me, too.

Lori, we?ve done it before and our test for the test itself was $45.  The test used only be done at TX A&M and UC Davis.  I?ve taken my horse in for the blood draw and I?ve also done it myself, saving money either way.  I?m not sure what the mark up on tests is but $100 for the test itself seems pretty high, even accounting for inflation.

You said the test wasn't expensive, but my neighbors just had the vet do a blood draw/test on a young horse they just received, that was rather malnourished, and when they asked for a selinium test to be done they were told it would run an additional $100 plus dollars. That was over the cost of the original test ($85.00).
Does this seem like a normal cost?
Just asking...I didn't remember spending that much in the past for selinium tests...
