The Canine Health Check Genetic DNA Disease and Trait Test Kit for Dogs screens your dog's buccal cells (cheek cells) on a genetic level to look for the traits that could tell you what diseases your dog might develop.
Mutations in your dog's DNA can be telltale signs that it will develop certain ailments in its lifetime and this test can detect those mutations.
All you need to do is take a sample of your dog's cheek cells from the inside of the mouth with the enclosed sterile swabs and send them in the enclosed pre-addressed, pre-stamped envelope to our laboratory for testing. Collecting the sample takes only 30 seconds and does not require the presence of a veterinarian. You can perform the collection on your own.
At the laboratory, geneticists analyze your dog's sample for signs that it may develop a certain disease at some point in its life. This allows you to take a proactive approach to your dog's health. Knowing that your dog is more susceptible to certain ailments lets you keep a keen eye out for symptoms of the identified diseases to help protect your pet from them.
This Dog DNA test can identify over 150 different diseases and ailments your dog might be in danger of developing based on its DNA. Using technology that used to only be available to purebred dog breeders, our laboratory of expertly trained geneticists, veterinarians and technicians meticulously test your dog's sample for possible mutations in its DNA that would make it vulnerable to particular threats.
Almost all of our test results are accepted by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.
Once you have shipped your dog's sample to the laboratory, you will receive results in seven to 10 days after the laboratory receives it. Results are delivered in a secure online environment. You can choose to share them with your veterinarian to give them more insight into your pet's health or you can choose to keep them confidential.
Use the Canine HealthCheck to assess your dog's genetic health or use it to ensure that the puppy you bought comes from a responsible breeder.
Rather than taking your dog to a veterinarian for multiple different tests, the Canine HealthCheck can test for a wide variety of diseases (some of which are later onset and may not be apparent now).
You have the capability of printing, emailing or sharing the results with your veterinarian to discuss further or on social media to get feedback with other like-minded owners or breeders. This test is customized, allowing dog owners the ability to categorize results depending on their breed, symptoms, organ system, and more.
Completely customizable, this test allows you to categorize the results based on your dog's breed, its symptoms, according to the organ system and in other ways.
Producing knowledgeable decisions about your canine's health is key to a joyful life for them now and in the future. This test allows dog owners the capability of taking preventative measures for their canines as a precaution for these traits and also allows puppy buyers the comfort in knowing they are buying from a responsible breeder.
