We test for over 175 genetic risk alleles, and that list continues to grow
Check out our comprehensive list of genetic health tests here: Health Conditions.

How does Embark select the conditions that we test for?
We spend a lot of time combing veterinary and genetic literature. In general, we select conditions for which (1) the variant—or variants—has been published and demonstrated to have a causal effect; (2) if not causal, the variant has been demonstrated to be strongly associated with disease risk in several populations of dogs; and (3) remain valid and pertinent to the affected breed(s). You can search for the conditions that are relevant to your dog’s breed here.
Some of your health tests appear to be under patent. How can you offer these tests? Along with our comprehensive review of the literature, we stay current on existing patents and believe that our testing methodology does not violate current patents.
