Now you can satisfy more than just curiosity about your dog’s breed make up! The new Wisdom Panel Health test is the most comprehensive breed + health detection test available testing for more than 250 breeds, types and varieties and 140+ disease-causing mutations. Unlock the secrets of your dog’s DNA with a simple, at-home swab test that just takes a moment to do. Results from our ISO 17025 certified, AAHA-compliant laboratory take only two to three weeks from the time your sample reaches us and we provide them to you in your dog’s very own customized web portal. Your report will include:

  1. Results for 140+ disease-causing genetic mutations including disease descriptions and indication of level of severity
  2. Breed determination back to the great-grandparent level in both family tree and percentage formats
  3. Information about the traits your dog may exhibit
  4. A predicted weight profile
  5. Easy-to-print format for record keeping and sharing with your vet

In addition to extensive disease screening, Wisdom Panel Health test also features the same robust breed detection as the Wisdom Panel 4.0 product. The panel covers more than 250 breeds, types and varieties including all those recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and can be run for mixed-breed, designer, or purebred dogs. The procedure is the same for all three, but you decide at the time of activation how you would like us to run it. For purebred and designer dogs, the test will provide a Principle Component Analysis chart comparing your dog with others of that same breed(s) in our database and for purebred tests specifically, an additional Homozygosity Profile.

Foreign Dogs+

Is your dog from a country outside the contiguous US, UK, Canada, Australia or Germany?

The Wisdom Panel Health test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on The Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country other than Canada, the UK, Australia, Germany, or mainland U.S., or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries, his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.
