Companion Animal Genetic Traits & Conditions

Improve Your Animals’ Health and Wellbeing with Genomics

DNA testing helps reveal more about our companion animals and their genetics. Understanding how genomics can influence animals can improve their health, welfare, and your ability to care for their unique needs. Using a simple and non-invasive sample, we can analyze their DNA to gain insight into their health predispositions, physical traits, and even complex conditions like behavior and performance. It can help provide better care for each animal and customize their preventative care based on their genetic makeup and potential risk factors. This insight also enables breeders to make informed breeding decisions to produce healthy offspring with the breed’s expected physical standards. In a growing and complex field, you can trust tests backed by our technology and expertise. We've been providing companion animal genomic testing since 2007. Our lab handles more samples than any other animal DNA testing company in the world.
