Peer into your pooch’s past and future with the Wisdom Panel Essential Dog DNA Test! This kit lets you find out about her ancestry, her medical complication risks and her genetic predisposition for various traits, so you’ll understand her in ways never before possible. The test draws upon a doggie DNA database to help you learn which of 350 different breeds, types, varieties her forebears came from and trace her ancestry back as far as her great-grandparents. It tells you whether she might be at risk for certain health complications while undergoing a variety of routine medical procedures, or if she may not be able to tolerate certain commonly used medications. It educates you about her genetically-derived ideal weight range so you and her vet can help her stay as healthy as possible. You’ll deepen your knowledge about your furry friend in fascinating ways, and be better prepared for what may lie ahead!

Key Benefits
  • Find out which breeds are represented in your dog’s genes and trace her ancestry back to her great-grandparents through comparison to a dog DNA database built from samples of over 1.7 million other dogs.
  • Learn about potential medical complications and adverse reactions to medications with over 25 medical complication tests, including the MDR1 medication sensitivity test, which only Wisdom Panel is licensed to provide.
  • Discover her ideal weight range based on her DNA so you can help her maintain a healthy weight.
  • See what physical traits she’s likely to possess in adulthood and why—all due to her genetic makeup.
  • Testing is easy and fast using a simple swab of the insides of her cheeks, and results typically arrive in as few as 3 weeks.
