Description

If you want to know the most you can about your precious pup’s genetic make-up and potential health concerns, the Wisdom Panel Health Breed & Health Identification Dog DNA Test Kit makes it easy to find out. With this simple kit, you can swab your dog’s cheek, send it off in a postage-paid box and discover your dog’s genetic background in just 2-3 weeks. It’s traced back to the great-grandparent level with over 250 breeds detected, including almost all of those recognized by the AKC. You decide whether you want the test to be run for mixed-breed, designer or purebred. All of the tests include a predicted weight profile and information about the most common traits your pooch may exhibit. As an added benefit, you’ll receive results for over 140 disease-causing genetic mutations including disease descriptions and an indication of their potential level of severity.

Key Benefits
  • Detects over 250 breeds, types and varieties including 99% of AKC-recognized breeds; traces three generations revealing your dog’s genetic background.
  • Screens for over 140 disease-causing genetic mutations and provides data on disease descriptions and an indication of their potential severity.
  • Provides adult weight prediction and information on common behavioral traits your pup is likely to exhibit.

    So glad I bought this test!

    By on

    My boys are rescue pups and the results were fascinating. First, the breeds were surprising but when you look closely and don’t just take the breed given from the rescue organization it starts to make sense. The physical characteristics they called out were 100% accurate and uncommon. As far as the health indicators one person complained that it was not a guarantee of future illness-but no kidding! But what it can do is tell you if there is a marker you can monitor to prevent or mitigate health issues later in life and what a blessing to do that for our loved ones. I also found the chewy price with free shipping to be the best or equal to all other websites and frankly I love chewys customer My boys are rescue pups and the results were fascinating.

    So Interesting as well as reassuring

    By on

    I decided to get this test done after losing two of my beloved Mini-Schnauzers to cancers when we got a new puppy. I just wanted to know what we might be up against in the future so we could take extra precautions in advance (food, vitamins, etc). The information that we received with this test is so interesting as well as informative. We were very reassured that we not only have a very healthy puppy, but we learned new things about how to keep him that way. Highly recommend this test.

    Probably a hoax

    By on

    I feel like an idiot. The results came back with 6 breeds and 3 groups. Five of the breeds are common to shelters. My dog has a distinct coat color and habit that only comes from one breed....and they missed it. He might be part of the other breeds they listed...but they missed the obvious...which means ...they didn't do a thorough test. The health things say he is clear of 152 markers...but some could mutate. All of the language for the results waffles. In the appearance section they got two WRONG (including coat color), two right (but they are common), and two were too vague. I could have gone to a fortune teller - been fed the same line and pay way less.

    Know your genes

    By on

    Great product and easy to use and the set up was fast. The waiting process is about two weeks but definitely worth it as I get to know the the correct DNA of my pup.

    Shocking results

    By on

    We were so shocked to read the results of the Wisdom Panel! We were expecting our dog, FooFee, was a jack russell mix of some kind. She is small, maybe 11 lbs. wow, we were surprised to learn she is 50% Great Dane and 50% Bull Mastiff! What an unexpected delight! Thank you Wisdom Panel! Can’t wait to test the cat!

    Just Okay Enough

    By on

    Was super excited to find out my pup's genetics and health risks, but there is 25% of his genetics with just a "?". Don't really feel good about the purchase with the price reflecting the large margin of unknown. If a friend asked about it, I'd definitely mention that part and probably influence them to buy a comparable product at a lower price. Pretty disappointed with this one.

    Wisdom Panel Review

    By on

    I was very impressed with Wisdom Panel. I got my results in less than 3 weeks, and the report was very detailed. They even gave me very accurate characteristics of her fur, legs, coloring, ears, and more. I did the Wisdom Panel Health as part of the testing. They were able to tell me what health issues my dog is prone to having. That is very nice to know in case she has any health issues. The cost is reasonable, and I was able to have my curiosity satisfied as to her breed types. I would recommend Wisdom Panel for anyone who would like to find out their animal's makeup and health history.

    Interesting Results!

    By on

    I adopted a dog last year and he looks like a black Golden Retriever—it was frustrating not having an answer when people would ask what he was. Now I have the answers! He’s a total mutt! Results said he’s Golden Retriever, Great Pyrenees, Vizsla, GSP, and Coonhound—And while not all of those made sense, what do I know? They predicted his physical traits from his DNA and they were spot on. I’m definitely super glad I was able to do this test, it was so fun and I’m excited to finally have answers!

    Great Investigative Tool

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have 2 (probably 2nd generation) feral born pups (now 6 years old). I ran both of their DNA's suspecting they might have different fathers because they look a little different from each other now that they're older - but they don't. They have identical DNA and I never would have guessed their ancestry. Got the health panel, too, which is very comprehensive. Both of mine are clear of everything which gives me added peace of mind.
