Great question! Our Breeder Relations team is here to help
Unlike many other dog DNA testing companies, Embark will test every dog for all of the 160+ genetic diseases that we screen. We do this because we have seen new diseases crop up in breeds that historically have not had issues in that area. We do have tests specific to each breed that can be found here: www.embarkvet.com/breeders.
Why should I order an Embark test rather than individual tests through another company?
Embark is working to make our test the only one you'll require for all your testing needs—and we are already there for a few breeds. Other companies make you piece together multiple tests to get all the data you need. With Embark, each test includes the following:
- Breed ancestry
- 160+ genetic health tests
- Coat color
- Inbreeding percentages
Does Embark Veterinary do parentage or lineage testing?
Yes, we offer both parentage testing and DNA Profiling, though these must be special-requested from our breeder-relations team. We are happy to help clarify which is the mother and father of each litter puppy as well as provide sibling data. Special note: All dogs need to be tested by Embark for us to provide you with accurate data.
