DNA Testing

Have you ever wondered exactly what breed your canine friend actually is? Do you constantly get into debates with your friends and family about whether ‘Fido’ is more Maltese or Bichon Frise?

At Balwyn Veterinary Surgery we are pleased to be able to offer Advance DNA testing for dogs.

Testing is as easy as taking a small blood sample from your dog and sending the sample away for analysis. Samples are sent to the United States and take approximately 1 month to be tested and a report generated.

You’ll then receive a printed report featuring:

  • Your dog’s genetic family tree back to their great grandparents
  • Detailed histories and descriptions of each breed detected in your dog’s ancestry
  • An adult genetic weight prediction
  • Recommended food and feeding guide for your mixed breed dog
