If looking to identify your pet’s genetic roots, this kit is a good buy. It’s fairly priced and the company provides detailed information about your dog’s genetic composition. For example, if your dog is a mixture of a Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, and a German Shepherd Embark shows the extent of genetic composition.
The kit can scan more than 350 dog breeds, varieties, and types. The company in partnership with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine uses a research-grade genotyping platform that provides an accurate breakdown of your dog’s genetic composition.
Genetic Disease Detection
Unfortunately, this testing kit is particularly designed to determine a dog’s genetic composition, not genetic health conditions. However, you can upgrade your Embark account to get your pet’s genetic health report without collecting more samples. Alternatively, you can buy Embark’s Breed+ Health Kit.
You should receive the results two to four weeks after sending the sample. However, we realized some customers received the results sooner, e.g., after a week.
Value for Money
This dog DNA test kit is a definite buy if looking for a more affordable option to Embark Breed Identification and Health kit. Also, its accuracy and ability to find out a dog’s root up to three generations provides great value for money.
This dog DNA test kit is a solid buy for dog owners looking for a comprehensive report about a dog’s breed. The results come in a family tree type chart showing up to three generations of his family history. Also, we found the testing kit pretty accurate in comparison with other testing kits.
