Make healthspan = lifespan

Embark helps you care for your dog in a way that leads to a higher quality of life, for longer.

Healthspan is the time of an individual's life where they are healthy and active. Unfortunately, healthspan can deteriorate long before lifespan. For your dog, this can mean having to quit the things they love to do like long walks & playing fetch.

Extend your dog's healthspan by testing for 160+ genetic diseases that occur later in life including glaucoma, degenerative myelopathy, and dilated cardiomyopathy, three of the most common adult-onset diseases in dogs. Knowing as early as possible means starting treatment early too.

Health conditions we test for

Genetically Predicted Age

Accurately care for your pup from birth to senior years

“One doggy year = seven human years” is fiction.

Embark’s unique genetic age algorithm gives you and your vet a precise genetic age for your dog. This allows you to provide your pooch with the right age-appropriate food, health screenings, and care from birth through your dog’s senior years.

Genetically Predicted Size

Overweight or just big-boned?

We can give you the best possible prediction of how big your puppy will grow up to be or whether your dog is one of the 50% of dogs in America that is overweight.

Embark takes the guessing out of what your dog should weigh, helping you to keep them running at the front of the pack.

We are just getting started.

Discovery is in our DNA. With your help, Embark is moving towards a future of personalized health care for your dog by understanding the genetic landscape of our pets and uncovering new information every day. Take a look at what’s ahead.
