  • “The process was easy and the results extremely helpful and surprising! Dakota is such a sweet dog and it’s so good to know her background and health issues that we are able to address before she starts showing signs and too late to treat! Thank you!”

    Leslie A. Embark Vet
  • “I recently rescued my dog from a Chicago shelter and wanted to know which breeds she is. I also wanted to know if she had any health conditions. The information from the dna and health portion of the test was interesting and useful.”

    Yvette P. Embark Vet
  • “I love that I am given updates though out the process. In the reports details are explained for better understanding, which leads to some answer why your dog(s) look and act the way they do 💕🐾”

    Marlynn W. Embark Vet
  • “Embark was able to give me the information I needed for both of my dogs . I wasn’t worried about their breed type but it was definitely interesting to find out . The health testing was the most important part as I can now better plan their future.”

    Ashley C. Embark Vet
  • “Great service, especially for us mixed dog owners! Got confirmation (though we sort of already knew) that our Jack and Charlie are litter mates, along with getting their DNA makeup. The website even shows potential dog “cousins” of my lil’ brothers!”
