I had wanted to do a DNA test for a while but never did. With a serious cancer diagnosis I wanted to test my dog before his time was up. Shipped and arrived fast. It only took 10 days from the time Wisdom Panel received the sample to when they posted results. We knew what our dog was mixed with (Pit and Catahoula) though we didn't know exact percentages. Wisdom Panel told us exactly what he was (what we knew he was) and even told us some extra breeds (small percentages) which was interesting! I have since got 2 more puppies and plan on getting them both the essential dna test. I would recommend this to anyone!
I love that I’m not guessing what my baby girl is anymore. The process is easy to do, follow simple directions and called the customer care phone number when I did have a question. I’m doing this again with another baby in the future.
I was worried based on the reviews but I am very happy I did this test on my dogs, after getting the results. I have an old dog that showed up ten years ago as a stray. I always was curious as to what she was. She looks like a giant Pom but acts like a herding dog so I thought corgi. After getting the results it made all the sense in the world, 38% mini american shepherd, 20% chow, 19% australian shepherd (and then several others). It also detected MDR1 medication sensitivity. After looking into that, I think that is where her seizures come from. Over the years, I have felt that medicine was causing it. I stopped flea meds and it made a huge difference. Just crazy that the test picked up on this. I got the test primarily for a new puppy that I rescued from a local shelter. Turns out, he is nearly a pure bred (American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier). Very cool test. (I did not submit pictures of my dogs because I was worried it may influence the results.) I would do this again.
