|It's probably economics more than anything. The testing equipment is expensive!!! (the tester was just telling me what he had paid for his new/upgraded equipment as one of my boy puppies decided to play doggie rodeo on the table with the little electrodes in his ears ) so you tend to find it offered more commonly in more metropolitan/populated areas where it is more apt to pay for itself (eventually). I don't know your area at all, but have you given the vet school a call (do you have one?)
No, of course you can't be expected to commute 20 hours to get their hearing checked! But it's also not something you can have a regular vet do and send the tracings in for interpretation because the vet would have to have the equipment (as well as the know-how) to begin with.
Well done on finding a cardiology clinic! I'll ask on the showdogs list if somebody knows about BAER testing in your area and report back if I find out anything. Surely there must be some reputable dalmation breeders around and I can't imagine them breeding blind, eh, very bad pun, but you know what I mean.
|Any vet schools around? I know many vet schools have the equipment, and can be decently priced due to donations.|
Utah appears to not be a very responsible place to raise dogs.
Sadly, Utah is the worst place I’ve lived for conscientious pet care.

Colorado State University (CSU) in Ft. Collins is our closest veterinary school. It’s one of the finest schools in the country, but to get there, it is a very long 9-hour drive across southern Wyoming. It's not nearly as much fun as it sounds.
|Yeah - you appear to be correct
I've had three responses - all forwarding the same list I use, none from breeders actually IN Utah. Someone suggested Nevada. My grasp of geography AND hers is equally pathetic though - we both admitted to that
I know there are other parts of the country that are similarly challenged. I still say you can't be expected to drive 10 hours each way with a litter of puppies. I drove 90 mins each way with a litter of eight week old puppies and though the drive itself wasn't bad, managing eight bored puppies - yeow! Never again on my own. What was I thinking?
