DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF YOUR DOG’S DNA

At Scappoose Veterinary Hospital, we proudly offer Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis DNA testing. Using the latest science, this test scans your dog’s DNA, both for ancestry information and specific genetic markers. As opposed to over-the-counter DNA tests for dogs, this blood test gives additional information about health conditions your dog may be predisposed to as well as nutritional guidelines based on your dog’s breed mix.

A Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis will:

  • Determine the breeds that make up your dog, comparing your dog’s DNA to the unique genetic signatures of more than 250 breeds, types, and varieties of dogs.
  • Help create a proactive plan for your dog’s health care with more than 130 genetic mutation tests including MDR1 for drug sensitivity.
  • Predict your dog’s likely adult weight and size, providing a benchmark you can use to ensure your dog stays at a healthy weight.
  • Offer precise nutritional guidelines and feeding recommendations based on your dog’s breed make-up.
