Amazing Information!

“This was a great test to perform for my dog. Very worthwhile to do it and understand more about his background and breed type (which wasn't pure breed as we thought). Also, it was helpful from a health perspective. Since I found out he was predisposed to a certain condition, I bought him stairs to get into his bed and avoid jumping from high levels. Made other modifications as well. Highly recommend it!”

Best Decision Ever!

“Not only did we find out exactly what breeds our dog Dodge is (totally surprising and not expected) we found his sister from the same litter! This in itself was priceless since Dodge was an adult rescue that we have zero background on. Through this we were able to contact his sister's family and find what state he originally came from, and what county they were originally rescued from. Also seeing his health profile relieved a lot of stress in worrying about what conditions he could possibly develop. Literally one of the best decisions I ever made!”
