The test reveals breeds making up your dog’s DNA and any genetic conditions he’s likely to develop. Orivet also includes a proprietary Life Plan a dog owner can share with their vet to identify potential health risks and administer relevant vaccines early on.
The test kit compares your dog’s DNA to the company’s genetic markers that comprise over 350 breeds. The results show individual breed percentages highlighting the most dominant and least dominant breeds.
Genetic disease detection
The test can also screen your dog’s DNA for more than 200 conditions and with the company’s Life Plan you can easily manage some conditions early on. The additional health risk analysis reveals your pet’s relevant health risks based on their breed, genetics, gender, lifestyle, age, and weight.
The company doesn’t indicate the actual turnaround time but some customers cite receiving results after a week while others could access them after 30 days. Since the company requires customers to create online accounts for tracking the progress of your dog’s DNA results, it’s possible to access them within the shortest time.
Value for money
The kit is a solid buy for this price point. It’s relatively cheaper than Embark’s high-end DNA testing kit but performs just as well.
Overall, this is a great dog DNA test kit for dog owners who want to find out the breeds making up your dog’s genetic composition and manage their health throughout their life. With Orivet’s Life Plan you can administer essential vaccines and preventive medicine your dog needs early on.
