WHY TEST YOUR DOG
Knowledge of your dog's DNA is important to their health
The smarter you are about your dog's past, the smarter you can
be about his future. Dogs are like people. They inherit physical
and character traits from breeds in their family tree. They also
pass along genetic disorders from generation to generation.
Your mixed-breed dog is a mixed bag of genetic traits.
Understanding their ancestry helps you and your veterinarian create
an effective health and wellness program.
The ADVANCE® Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test
helps to remove the guesswork for both you and your veterinarian.
The test can help clear the confusion, unlocking secrets hidden in
your dog's DNA.
By learning the breeds in your dog's DNA, you can make it easier
for your veterinarian to customise the most effective training,
nutrition and medical treatment for your pet.
With just a simple blood sample, the ADVANCE Mixed Breed
Identification DNA Test can provide you and your vet information
which helps to:
DISCOVER your dog's genetic make-up back to
their great grandparents by comparing their genetic signature with
more than 200 breeds, types and varieties.

DETERMINE your dog's recommended nutritional
program, and create an effective care and wellness program in
