DNA Testing for your pet at All Animals Veterinary Hospital
Discover the secrets of DNA testing
Using the latest science, this test scans your dog’s DNA, both for ancestry information and specific genetic markers. Your veterinarian can use this information to create a custom health and wellness plan based on your dog’s genetic code.
A ROYAL CANIN® Genetic Health Analysis™ will:
- Determine the breeds that make up your dog, comparing your dog’s DNA to the unique genetic signatures of more than 250 breeds, types and varieties of dogs.
- Help create a proactive plan for your dog’s health care with more than 130 genetic mutation tests including MDR1 for drug sensitivity.
- Predict your dog’s likely adult weight and size, providing a benchmark you can use to ensure your dog stays at a healthy weight.
- Offer precise nutritional guidelines and feeding recommendations based on your dog’s breed make-up.
What is the process?
Schedule an appointment for your dog and we will draw a small blood sample for the DNA test. It’s very easy and stress-free for your dog. We send the sample to an off-site laboratory and after a couple of weeks, we receive a report with the results. We’ll then schedule a time to discuss health and a wellness plan for your pet. The process takes up to four weeks.
Why opt for DNA testing?
With DNA testing, we can look at genetic signatures of more than 250 breeds. Knowing the ancestry and genetic make up of your dog, we can work together to determine the best diet and wellness plans.
