Crack the code of your dog's DNA with this affordable genetic testing kit

Find your dog's breed mix, personality and more with a simple cheek swab in this DNA kit.

  • There’s a great deal of information about our canine companions we don’t know.
  • An easy solution exists that allows for quick and painless genetic testing of dogs.
  • For a low price, you can learn crucial information, such as predisposition to certain diseases.

Forget being man’s best friend; dogs are everybody’s best friend. We treat our furry friends like royalty, because we recognize the value of having them around as long as possible. But while we like to view ourselves as knowing our dogs as well as our own family, there’s a lot that we remain unaware of. While humans regularly take DNA tests, due to the potential benefits of knowing one’s genetic makeup as well as family history, it is less common to know the genetics of your dog.

The DNA My Dog Breed Identification Test gives you the ability to quickly understand your pet on a whole new level. All you have to do is swab your dog’s inner cheek, send it in via mail to DNA My Dog, and in two weeks or less you’ll get a full report of your dog’s DNA and breed mix. With this information, you’ll be able to understand where your dog’s personality traits and predispositions for diseases are coming from, which can help you make sure your dog stays healthy and happy for a long time.

The swabbing process is completely harmless and over in less than a minute, unlike other testing methods, which can be unnecessarily uncomfortable. DNA My Dog takes the comfort of your pet extremely seriously — that’s why both the GHP Biotechnology Awards 2020 and recognized the DNA My Dog Breed Identification Test for its pioneering of ethical genetic testing for animals.

You can grab the kit for 25% off for a limited time, for the low price of just $60. It’s never been easier to learn more about your four-legged friend, so what are you waiting for?
