How much does a thyroid test typically cost?

We called the vet and asked, but they said they have to see the dog first before they give a price. Does anyone know how much one generally costs?

Think is more for us, really depends on the vet practice. NJ is always more expensive than MA or PA. Last time it was about $90

Mine was in the $100 range. We were shocked but did it anyway. They had to send it to Michigan for some reason; maybe that's why it cost so much. The vet suspected thyroid disease for a while and then I developed an eye problem that the opthalmologist said was thyroid related so we did the test. Once I was on meds, my eye got better AND I lost some weight.

I am not sure why they said they had to see your dog first thinking Did they give you a reason why?

We just had a six panel thyroid test done and it was $35.00 at our vet. And she did a CBC, too, for $25.00. However, our vet is WAY lower than the other vets in our area. Another vet quoted $145.00 to a friend of mine! Whew - we LOVE Dr. Ashley!

Thanks, everypup. I see it can vary greatly. I don't think the receptionist gave a reason why they have to see her first (my mom talked to them) but we're bringing Nighque in this Saturday so I guess we'll find out. laugh out loud

Not sure what your thyroid symptoms are, but just be aware that there is new research out of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks indicating that many Northern Breeds (including Siberian Huskies) have "normal" thyroid levels lower than the "average" that most vets use. The standard levels were developed using a variety of breeds, rather than a specific level for a specific breed.

So I would say unless your dod ig showing physical symptoms that may be related to thyriod, you may not want to do a lot of supplimenting.

Just be aware.

Thank you for that information. Good to know for future reference. =)
But Steele isn't the one getting thyroid tested. It's my other dog, Nighque, a black lab. There's very much a reason we want to get it checked, as she has what we believe to be very severe, self-mutilating allergies. So we're getting her thyroid checked to see if it might be that and not allergies.
