    I wouldn’t want to fork over the money, but it would be interesting to know the breeds of our dogs for curiosity’s sake. However, instead of finding out their ancestry it seems to me that a better use of money would be to donate it to some of the shelters.

      Ditto! I’m not the least interested in my own genetic makeup, but I’d be interested in my dog’s if the price was right. 🙂

    I would love to know what my dogs are mixes of. This is still so expensive when it’s really not necessary. It’s cheaper to have your own DNA tested.

    I believe these may be useful for breeders of pure bred dogs so if they are planning on breeding they may know what genetic issues would be undesirable???

    I’m a veterinary nurse and we were offered a discount to do a dna test on our pets. It was a blood test, not this particularone. I did it for curiosity of my dog’s background since he was a rescue. We knew his mom was lab, but he has a pitbull look. We travel a lot with our dogs and there are breed bans in several areas so now we have proof he is cattle dog/lab. This test also shows if he carries certain markers for genetic diseases.

      These are really the only reasons I’d do one of these tests (to prove my rescue dog is not a bully breed, and to see if she’s predisposed to genetic diseases). Still too expensive at the moment, though!

    Am I an idiot for considering it?

      No, you’re not crazy. We did a similar one that we got from It was $89 normal price if I remember correctly. My dog was a complete mutt and we really had no idea what he was so it was very enlightening. But the really nice thing was we found out that he had a genetic mutation that made him overly sensitive to most drugs. We wouldn’t have otherwise known that and may have ended up overdosing him on drugs had we not known and told our vet when we had to put him on medication later in his life.

    I bought it 🙈 I’m really curious the mix of our new rescue dog.

    We recently used embark. You get so much useful information and reports for you to share with your vet for the disease results. Totally worth it. Cheapest ive seen it. I did the research on it as i have a masters of biomedical research. A close friend of mine got her phd at cornell and even knew one of the girls that works in the lab analyzing the embark tests. They do use the results toward research as well which I loved as a scientist myself. Yeah you could donate to a shelter, but research is a path of helping advance canine health as well.
