OPEN SWAB SLEEVE – Peel back the edges of the swab sleeve about 1 inch (not all the way) and remove swab by holding its handle. Do not touch the bristles. Save the sleeve to place the swabs in for mailing.
COLLECT CHEEK CELLS – Firmly roll the swab’s bristles between the inner surface of the cheek and gums for about 15 seconds for each swab. NOTE: DO NOT let your dog eat anything or share a water dish with other dogs for about an hour before you do the test.
AIR DRY SWABS – Insert swab handle in the hole of the carton insert and allow swabs to dry for about five minutes. Repeat steps 1-3 for the second swab.
ACTIVATE YOUR KIT –Activate your kit online. Fill out all the information, check it for accuracy and submit. You will receive an Activation Code Number that you need to write on the back of your Sample ID Sticker.
REINSERT DRY SWABS – Reinsert both dry swabs into the protective sleeve they came in. DO NOT reseal as this can cause bacterial growth.
SEAL THE CARTON – Place the sleeve with the swabs back into the carton it came in and seal.
MAIL TEST TO LAB – Pre-paid shipping label has already been placed on the carton. Simply seal and place with the outgoing mail. See your report online in approximately 2-3 weeks
Several months ago I adopted a 8 year old cat. I needed to know more about her background to take better care of her. The company kept me up to date on their progress and finally in 2 weeks the report came in. Besides her background they were able to tell me what to look for in case she needed vet care. Since her blood type was rare I was able to let my vet know should she ever need surgery. There were other things to watch for which made me feel like I could take care of her in the event she got ill. I thought her background was interesting but her health information was more important. Thanks to Wisdom for their hard work in their research to assist me in caring for my new friend.
User friendly and cool results!

The test kit was super easy to use and the website itself is great to navigate. Awesome layout and design, and every step was clear so I was never confused about what would come next. My cat hated the swabbing process - you basically have to hold them down and rub the inside of their mouth with the kind of brush used to clean straws, and then you have to do it a second time. But all was forgiven and forgotten after some treats. After I sent the dna back out for testing the website showed the progress of my results: first shipping info, then showing that it had arrived, to what step of processing it was on and an estimated time of when I would expect my results.

It took a little while to get the final results, maybe about a month from sending the kit back out, but I don’t consider that a long time for this kind of thing.
I got my cat from a coworker who couldn’t keep him when he was about 7 months old, and my family always assumed he was part Siamese because of his blue point coloring and short hair. We were surprised to find out his coloring comes from only 7% ragdoll! (The rest being American domestic cat). He has the bright blue eyes and facial blaze that are seen in ragdolls, and I was surprised to find out that he shares major personality traits with them too! Obviously I would love my boy the same no matter what breeds showed up on his test, but this gave me some cool new insight on him.… more
Fantastic and fast!

The service is very quick, unlike other companies! The results are amazing! I now know all my cats are healthy for breeding and I know which cats carry certain color possibilities. I love it!

Wow, this whole process was great. The samples were easy to obtain, I was able to create a profile for my cat, Wisdom kept me in the loop during this process and I received the final results in less than two weeks. After reading about what other companies DNA tests offer, I think the family tree puts Wisdom ahead of their competitors and this tree offers a more indept insight into my cats breed heritage. I just ordered two more Wisdom Panel kits from Chewy as a birthday gift for my daughters two cats, I know she will be so excited to learn more about her boys. I am also looking forward to what other updates Wisdom will provide in the future.
Fun and informative

Cool test for cats!
