2 Amazing New Dog DNA Tests Available Now!

by Dr. Chris

September 2, 2011 This week brought great news for pet owners. Mars Veterinary launched 2 new Dog DNA tests for Purebred and Designer Dogs called Wisdom Panel Purebred and Wisdom Panel Designer Dog.

These tests are designed to help purebred owners know for sure if their dog is in fact purebred. If you spent hundreds of dollars for a purebred Maltese, you can finally know for sure if the breeder was telling you the truth.

For owners of Designer dogs or “hybrid” dogs you can know for sure if your dog came from a mix of 2 purebred dogs. For example if you have a Puggle, you can now know if one of the parents was a purebred Beagle or Pug.

The best part of the new tests are that you can do them at home. All you need to do is to send in a cheek swab to the company, and within 3 weeks you should receive an Ancestry Report detailing how purebred your dog really is.

The costs are $69.99 for either the Wisdom Panel Purebred or the Wisdom Panel Designer Dog.

Benefits of Dog DNA Testing

One big benefit of dog DNA testing is that is should discourage irresponsible dog breeding and keep dog breeders more honest.

Another benefit is that dog owners can know for sure what breeds make up their dog and know more about what diseases they are predisposed to.

Mars Veterinary developed these panels after years of research and an analysis of over 19 million DNA markers and testing more than 13,000 dogs. This allows these tests to be very accurate.

The Wisdom Panel Purebred and Wisdom Panel Designer Dog can be purchased online and through major pet retailers.
