Making informed decisions about your dog's health is vital to it's happy life now and in the future.  This genetic test screens your dog's DNA for a variety of genetic mutations causing inherited diseases and traits.  Knowing your dog's breed is only a small part of the story.  Knowing your dog's genetic health risks will allow you to:

  • Care for those diseases that are treatable
  • Prepare for a pet emergency
  • Predict future medical problems
  • Have peace of mind
