It’s like magic, but it’s pure science.

DNA has a lot to say about your pet.

Here’s how Wisdom Panel™ tests deliver actionable insights on ancestry, traits, and health for dogs.

The breakthrough tech your pet deserves.

Did you know that, genetically speaking, a Chihuahua and a Great Dane are 99% identical? Or that—due to the unpredictable nature of trait inheritance—a domestic shorthair cat could turn out looking totally pedigreed? So, how do we detect the difference? Our scientists have spent more than a decade developing a custom genotyping chip and an industry-leading breed detection system. All to make sure we get the most precise picture of your pet’s breed mix. Because they deserve the best.

With 40x greater genetic resolution, our dog breed detection system allows us to identify slight differences between even the most closely related breeds.

To provide the most reliable results, we compare your pet's genome against the world's largest breed reference database (27,000+ samples from over 50 countries)..

The biggest database for the best breed detection.

We have no business selling you DNA tests if we’re not going to be the best, most helpful option out there. So when we do test your pet’s DNA, we go deep. And we compare your pet’s sample to the world’s largest reference database for both dogs and cats. Our database lets us test your pet’s genetic code against millions of possible breed combinations and screen for over 365 dog and over 70 cat breeds and populations. With the world’s largest breed database, we’re able to give you the most accurate results. And as we continue to add data as a community, we can make more and more discoveries to help all petkind.   

Science that only gets smarter over time.

You may already know that we screen for more breeds—and report them with greater precision—than any other pet DNA service. What you might not know? Our tech is as scalable as it is sophisticated. That means our tests will just keep getting more accurate and comprehensive with time. For example, our dog breed detection system is 1,140x more efficient than the industry standard. As a result, we can simultaneously process tens of thousands of samples (multiples more than other dog DNA services) and tease vital insights from complex genetic data in minutes.

Our rigorous quality control standards are comparable to those that human genetics testing companies use.

Not your average lab.

You’ve probably heard of human-grade pet food or dog shampoo. But what we’ve got is a human-grade lab. (CLIA-certified in fact.) So, we’re not messing around with your dog’s genetic sample. We’re using the best-quality equipment available. We work with Neogen Genomics. They’re genetic pros with more pet DNA experience than any other lab, receiving more than 1.5 million samples every year. (And, in case you’re into acronyms, along with being CLIA-certified, our US lab is AAHA-compliant, ISO 17025-certified, and accredited by both A2LA and the USDA.)
