CANINE GENETIC SERVICES

Animal Genetics offers a variety of canine genetic testing services. Coat color and length testing allows breeders to anticipate the phenotypes of potential offspring, maximizing the potential to produce the most favorable coat types. In most pure bred dogs, inherited genetic disorders are a become. Many of these disorders are recessive, meaning that a dog can be a carrier of a potentially devastating disease and not show any signs. DNA testing helps breeders improve the health of a litter by screening for genetic disorders. Genetic testing is an extremely accurate and reliable way of determining a dog’s genotype and screening for possible genetic disorders.
