Should I DNA Test My Dog?

Doggy DNA TestThe short answer is YES! There are many reasons why you would want to get your dogs DNA Tested though your Veterinarian or buying at Kit and doing it at home. We encourage all dog owners ( cat owners too!) to get a DNA Test. However if you read though our website, we do want you to take the results with a grain of salt. Here are our top reasons why you should get your Dog DNA Tested!

 

  1. Dog DNA Test Kits are cheap, easy and fun to do!
  2. Just like any new technology, these DNA companies need to expand their databases to get accurate results. As more dogs are sampled and the data is stored the companies test results will only get better.
  3. The genetic health screening can give you an idea of things that could happen and what symptoms you should be looking for. We do however disagree with people acting based on these results. See our Genetic Screen page for more information.
