DNA Testing

Canine DNA testing is now available through a blood screening called the Wisdom Panel, a professional canine genetic analysis. This test has been developed based on years of scientific research into the genes that determine dogs’ appearances and behavior traits. Blood samples are analyzed to detect genetic markers that identify a dog’s heritage. DNA testing can be a fun explanation of a dog’s appearance, but it can also be an important aid when looking for:

  • Ideal adult weight range
  • The best way to train, feed and exercise your dog
  • Behavior problems associated with certain breeds
  • Potential health risks associated with specific breeds
  • Genetic disorders
