Do you ever wonder if your pet is really the breed you have been told he is? Having a toy Australian Shepherd and people asking if she is a long haired Chihuahua, makes me question for sure her lineage. Below is information from a website called wisdom panel that offers an economical way to see what breed or breeds are in your canine or feline. They offer an at home kit, you process and send off for analysis. Just that easy. All for less than $100. They usually have the results in 2-4 weeks.
Wisdom Panel, our at-home swab product features this same robust breed detection database and technology and a subset of disease testing as well.
All our products include detection for the largest breed count on the market—250+ breeds, types and varieties—and we hold the exclusive worldwide license for the genetic breed detection process as pioneered by Dr. Elaine Ostrander during her time at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute. In addition Mars Veterinary holds the only commercial license in the United States for the MDR1 drug sensitivity screening from Washington State University.
As part of the largest pet care company in the world, we are able to draw on research from some of the most extensive databases of canine behavior, health and nutritional information to develop our tests. For nearly a decade starting with the funding of the initial canine genomics project, we have been passionate about advancing the science of canine genetics so we can help owners understand the unique needs of their dogs from the inside out contributing to genetic science and pulling from it, valuable insights into dogs as individuals. The more we know about our four-legged friends the better we can plan for their individual needs. Simply put…happier and healthier lives for our furry family members.
