Available Now: Announcing Easier Access to the Breed-Relevant Information You Need

February 12, 2020

Embark is pleased to announce a highly requested update to how we display genetic health results for tested dogs on our platform. This change will better highlight the health conditions known to impact your dog’s breed, and clearly differentiate between breed relevant and broad screening “on-breed” and “off-breed” health results.

As part of this change, we are also adding new information about each health condition to help owners better understand and apply the results to the care of their dogs and to the important decisions they make in breeding programs.

Distinguishing the genetic conditions that are known to impact your breed, while still communicating the results and impact of additional known health conditions that are tested as part of Embark’s included research initiatives, helps make genetic testing more useful to dog breeders. Regular Updates and improvements like this are part of our continued commitment to connect the breeding community with Embark’s scientists and veterinarians, so that we can continue to provide top quality DNA testing services and work toward increasing the long term health and well-being of purebred dogs.

We will announce the updated health results on Facebook, so be sure to follow our page https://business.facebook.com/embarkforbreeders for the latest news and information about Embark. We will also notify customers via email when the changes are made.

Embark strives to be the most comprehensive DNA test provider for dog breeders and is committed to continually improving the products and services we provide. From small breeds like Chihuahuas, Yorkshire Terriers, and Beagles to large breeds like Labrador Retrievers and Great Danes, Embark provides genetic health condition testing, physical trait information, and genetic COI in every test result.

Updated content about each genetic health condition and an easy-to-use new format that distinguishes breed-relevant results from the other included conditions tested is also now available.
