WVDL Testing Fees to Increase on Oct. 1

WVDL Testing Fee Increase Takes Effect Oct. 1


The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (WVDL) will raise test fees by 4% beginning October 1.   The Board of Directors approved the increase over the summer as the lab has not had a comprehensive increase in its testing services in four years.

“Not surprisingly and likely similar to your businesses, in order to get the work done our costs of doing business are gradually rising,” said WVDL Director Dr. Phil Bochsler.  “We will continue to strive to keep costs reasonable while producing the best results and service possible.”

Our clients will see that most testing costs were increased 4% across the board, but there are exceptions.  Some tests saw prices remain unchanged or saw increases or decreases in costs that were above or below the 4% figure.

These changes in prices affect only testing services.  Supplies, shipping costs and media costs are NOT part of this price adjustment and those costs will remain unchanged.  Additionally, referral testing or outsourced testing, is not affected by WVDL price increases, since these costs are dependent upon the referral lab’s testing fees.

We appreciate you and your business and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
