Questions & Answers

38 Customer Questions

I would like to know exactly what my mixed breed puppy is down to percentages, will this test good be me a breakdown of all his breeds?
Answer by ChewyMar 10, 2021
This Wisdom Panel Essential test includes breed detection down to 1%.

I have four dogs in one house. Does this test require the dog being tested drink from a separate water bowl than the rest of the dogs? And if so, for how long will I need to keep her separate from drinking after them to make sure her sample isn’t contaminated?
Answer by ChewyAug 02, 2020
We recommend waiting at least an hour after the pup has eaten, shared a water bowl, or shared a toy with another dog before swabbing, in order to ensure that the sample is not contaminated. Additionally, we advise separating the dogs during this time.

Can I test two dogs with one DNA test purchase or do I need to buy two test kits?
Answer by ChewyAug 18, 2021
The two swabs included are intended to be used for one dog only. Wisdom Panel would like to have both swabs in case there is not enough DNA material on one swab for them to test.

Can I get a written version of the results sent to me
Answer by ChewyApr 07, 2021
Reports are generally delivered to your wisdompanel.com account within 2-3 weeks of arrival at the lab. Wisdom Panel sends an email alerting you when the report is ready to be viewed. Due to the online nature of the product, no printed report is sent but you can print a report summary from within the report itself.

10/10 Worth it!

I’m so happy I decided to get my dogs DNA tested! After receiving the kit, I swapped my dogs mouth and mailed it out; they received it within a day. It took 14 days to receive the final results and I’m blown away! It is so detailed and accurate, you can see their entire bloodline up to their great-great grandparents. I also can see other dogs profiles that share the same genetics as my dog! I highly recommend trying it out!
