DNA Testing

At Highton Veterinary Clinic we are pleased to let you know we can DNA test your dog!

That’s right test your dog’s DNA, as we all know knowledge of your dog’s DNA is important to their health and wellbeing

The smarter you are about your dog’s past, the smarter you can be about his future. Dogs are like people. They inherit physical and character traits from breeds in their family tree. They also pass along genetic disorders from generation to generation.

Your mixed-breed dog is a mixed bag of genetic traits. Understanding their ancestry helps you and your veterinarian create an effective health and wellness program.

The ADVANCE® Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test helps to remove the guesswork for both you and your veterinarian. The test can help clear the confusion, unlocking secrets hidden in your dog’s DNA.

By learning the breeds in your dog’s DNA, you can make it easier for your veterinarian to customise the most effective training, nutrition and medical treatment for your pet.

With just a simple blood sample, the ADVANCE Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test can provide you and your vet information which helps to:

DISCOVER your dog’s genetic make-up back to their great grandparents by comparing their genetic signature with more than 200 breeds, types and varieties.

PREDICT your dog’s target genetic adult weight range

DETERMINE your dog’s recommended nutritional program, and create an effective care and wellness program in conjunction with your veterinarian

OBTAIN a better understanding of your dog’s breed-related behavioural characteristics

PRE-SCREEN for your dog’s breed-related risk of developing certain genetic diseases*

*Available upon request and at additional cost, for up to three months using the same blood sample

Why not ask the staff so they can help you find out what type of dog you really have?
