This easy-to-read snapshot of breed-specific genetic health risks is proof of DNA testing and the perfect addition to a new puppy’s information packet to give their owners peace of mind. You can log in to your My Embark for Breeders online account to download the DNA Health Summary for each puppy in the litter. 

Purebred puppy clear genetic health results

The report begins with puppy identification, including the puppy’s registered name, date of birth, sex, breed ancestry, owner-supplied breed, registration body/number, Embark swab code number, and a link to the puppy’s Embark profile. Next, the breed-relevant genetic health test results are separated into two sections. 

The first section shows the genetic health conditions a puppy could develop and the signs and symptoms of these conditions. These results are the “at-risk” results from the full report. This section will not be included if your puppy is not at risk for genetic health conditions. The second section shows which health conditions the puppy is not expected to develop signs and symptoms of. This includes clear and carrier test results from the full report.
