DNA Testing

Do you want to showcase your dog at a breeder’s show? Or did you pay top dollar for a purebred puppy but now have your doubts about their lineage? Kent Veterinary Clinic can now offer DNA testing for your pet. We painlessly swab your pet’s mouth for their saliva and we send the sample off to be analyzed. From these results we can tell an ancestory of the breed, the pureness of the pet’s lineage and also the prediction of weight and color if interested. In the case of a mixed breed animal, DNA testing can tell you each of the breeds found in your pet’s background.
