should the dealer do it? or can what they used be purchased elsewhere?

I bought my last Toyota rad fluid at Carquest Auto Parts. I believe I got it for $14 a gal. I don't know if they have them in Texas but there is a cheaper option.

I change mine every 3 years now,,, used to be 2. I plan to flush out the Toyota specific fluid and move to an off-the-shelf brand. Get away from the dealer lock sh-tuff.
