DNA Testing

DNA Testing


At Companion Pet Clinic we proudly offer Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis DNA Testing. As opposed to over-the-counter DNA tests for dogs, Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis is sold exclusively through veterinary clinics. While both types of tests give information about breed mix and optimal weight predictions, the blood test gives additional information about health conditions that the dog may be predisposed to as well as nutritional guidelines based on the 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.
