The laboratory of the Netherlands @ Dr. Van Haeringen Laboratorium (VGL)is now offerring in-house testing with the new CA test at very reasonable prices:
The price of under $100.00 for a combined test of Parentage identification for Registration (DNA-Profile) plus CA, LFS AND SCID is an eye opener. It certainly shows how a registry and a corresponding certified laboratory can work together to reduce the costs for todays horse breeders and owners!
Congratulations to the Dutch and their AVS. !!!!!!!!!!
This IS great news for everyone!
I have tested my stallion for SCID & CA
and my mare for CA. Both horses tested
clear on all counts.
I just got my LFS results back today for
both horses and they are negative so I'm
doing the "happy dance!"
One more comment...while the process can
be a nail-biting one, it is worth every penny
to know and be able to make educated breeding
decisions. I don't regret what I paid and I
encourage others to test their breeding stock.
And now, back to the happy dance.....
