Animal Genetics – Healthy Animals, Happy Owners

Securing the genetic health of your four-legged friends is now easier than ever. Genetic testing is available for many disorders and physical traits in purebred animals. By identifying affected and carrier animals prior to breeding, breeders can make informed breeding decisions and ensure that they will not produce affected animals. Animal owners can have their animals tested, or make sure before buying an animal that the parents have been tested for genetic problems in the breed. Even mixed-breed animals can be tested for diseases common in their ancestor breeds. It is also possible to use genetic testing to select for traits of interest, such as a preferred coat color. Identity and parentage testing can create a DNA fingerprint of your animal as a permanent record of identity and pedigree.

By simply sending a sample to the CAG laboratory (cheek swab, hair, or blood), CAG will use the latest technology to isolate DNA and test for mutations known to be a problem in your breed. In 7 to 10 days, you will receive a comprehensive report of the test results, with recommendations for breeding decisions and for any specialized care the animal should receive. Specialized CAG geneticists are always available for personal consultations and counseling, whether it is about what genetic test are most appropriate for your animal, to what report results really mean for you.
