Embark strives to provide the most accurate and informative health results possible to every user. As part of this effort, Embark’s team of scientists and veterinary geneticists review research on an ongoing basis to learn more about genetic diseases, newly published risk variants, and the breeds of dogs they affect. While some risk variants may be detected in certain breeds, information regarding the clinical presentation (how that affects your dog’s health) of the disease may not be known or yet fully proven.
For a condition to be considered breed-relevant, Embark’s science and veterinary geneticist team must have reviewed published research, or gathered enough data on dogs within the breed, to include in the breed-relevant category.
