When we brought Balty into our family, we took him in not knowing much about him other than what his former owners could tell us. We know that he was adopted from our local humane society when he was about 8 months old. We know that he is a mixed breed dog and is labeled a pit bull because he is part American Staffordshire Terrier. Thanks to a recent vet visit, we have also learned that Balty is also part boxer.
Even with the information we have, I would love to know more about him to ensure that we are providing him with the best care that we can. Of course, I wouldn’t know the first thing about where to look and then, BAM! I was introduced to Wisdom Panel® 3.0.
What is Wisdom Panel 3.o?
Wisdom Panel® 3.0 is the next evolution of the canine DNA test from industry leader, Mars Veterinary, which features the potentially life-saving Multi-Drug Resistance 1 (MDR1) genetic mutation screening.
Wisdom Panel 3.0 covers 250+ breeds, types and varieties including all those recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and can be run for mixed-breed, designer, or purebred dogs and provides ancestry information back to the great-grandparent level.
What Are the Benefits of Dog DNA Testing?
Having DNA testing on your dog can be beneficial because it will let you know if they are sensitive to any drugs, help you formulate a tailor-made training program that allows you to work with their natural instincts as well as better understand their behavior characteristics.
DNA testing can also help you put together a nutrition plan for your dog, what health concerns to be on the lookout for, as well as help determine what size your dog might be as an adult.
Testing Is Easy
If you are concerned about putting your dog through an array of tests, you have nothing to worry about. With Wisdom Panel 3.0, just follow the instructions that come in your kit. Really, it’s a simple process of opening the swab within the container, collecting cells of the inner surface of your dogs cheek and gums, letting the swabs dry for about 5 minutes, activating your kid, packing up, and shipping out. From there, just wait for the results.
