Canine Genetics

Genetic Profiling

ZooOmics™ offers DNA profiling, parentage verification, health testing and colour testing in canines. There are hundreds of genetic mutations that influence the health of canines. To date, there is no cure for any canine genetic disease. The genetic tests on offer at ZooOmics™ are able to provide clarity on the genetic status of the canine: clear of a disease, carrier for the disease or affected by the disease. This information is useful to veterinary professionals to assist in diagnosis and to breeders when making breeding decisions.
