Get proactive about your dog’s health needs

(P)rethinking Canine Health

What if caring for your dog was proactive instead of reactive?

Embark tests for 250+ genetic health risks — more than any other dog DNA test on the market.

Our health report makes it easy to send your pup’s results to their vet to make a care plan for all their years to come.

Get ahead of canine diseases that occur later in life including glaucoma, degenerative myelopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy, three of the most common adult-onset diseases in dogs. Knowing that your dog is predisposed as early as possible means starting prevention or treatment early too.

Actionable results, exclusively from Embark

Get vet-actionable health information that influences how your vet interprets your dog’s clinical data, and how they determine your pet’s diagnostic, monitoring, or treatment plan.

Spotlight on ALT: Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) is a value that vets measure in routine bloodwork. Learning what your dog’s “normal” ALT values are from a DNA test can help your vet better understand bloodwork results in relation to your dog’s liver health.
