Ever wonder what breeds your mixed-breed dog really is?
Sure he's got a nose like a pointer and ears like a collie and the temperament of a dalmatian or maybe it's the other way around? It's hard to know for sure...until now. With the Mars Veterinary Wisdom Panel Insights Mixed Breed Identification DNA Kit you can know exactly what breeds make up your dog. Knowing your dog's breed make up will not only satisfy your curiosity, but it will help you better understand your dogs personality, behavior and possible health issues.
Easy and pain free - Just a simply swab inside your dog's cheek is all it takes
The way is works is simple. You take one of the included swabs and rub it inside your dog's cheek. Then you mail it off to the Mars Veterinary Lab with the included packing materials and pre-paid envelope. Then, Mars Veterinary will analyze your dog's DNA and compare it with their database (Mars Veterinary tests for 185+ different breeds, more than any other test on the market). In approximately 2 weeks, you will receive a packet from Mars Veterinary will a detailed breakdown of the breeds that make up your lovable mutt!
Now when someone asks you what kind of dog you have, instead of saying a "mixed breed" or a "mutt" you can wow them with "Well, she's 37% poodle, 25% basset hound, 20% irish setter and 18% golden retriever". Pretty neat, huh? Click here for more detailed instructions
on the Mars Veterinary Dog DNA Kit.
What Will My Dog's Report Tell Me?
You will receive detailed breakdown of the breeds that make up your dog. In addition, you will receive in depth information sheets on the breeds in your dog's ancestry as well as an ancestry chart showing where each breed was likely involved so you can see when the breeds contributed to your dog’s family history!
Parent: A breed that represents approximately 50% of your dog’s DNA. You are likely to see the most physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with mixed-breed parents will not have a breed represented at this level.
Grandparent: A breed that represents approximately 25% of your dog’s DNA. You may see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed. Dogs with a very mixed ancestry may not have a breed represented at this level.
Great-Grandparent: A breed that represents approximately 12.5% of your dog’s DNA. You are unlikely to see many traits from this breed unless they are dominant.
