Cracking the genome has led to some truly amazing technology, from curing blindness to creating unique genetic code in a computer. But in the day-to-day, it's opened the door to learning more about the world around us, including about our pets. The Orivet Dog DNA Kit, currently 12% off, will tell you the ancestry and future of your pet.
Administering the test is simple. Place the included swab in their mouth for the instructed amount of time, and then mail it back for testing using the provided pre-paid envelope. Results come back in three to four weeks.
The results are broken out into four categories. First, you'll learn about your dog's unique mix of breeds, which ties into the ancestry category and tracks breeds back three generations. The health screening looks for over 200 diseases and traits to help you keep an eye out for problems your furry friend might have. And all of this ties into the LifePlan.
LifePlan is Orivet's science-guided plan to help you keep your pooch healthy. Personalized to their unique mix of DNA, and built to be easily shared with your veterinarian, it looks closely at potential risks and diseases you may need to look out for, while also offering custom alerts and other tools. You can schedule vet visit reminders, care prompts, and more, while getting expert advice and disease screening suggestions. It serves as a digital record for your pet's health, putting everything in one place for peace of mind.
We all want the best for our pets. After all, they do a lot for us. Genetic screening can teach you more about your pup's past while helping you guide them towards a healthier future. Usually, the Orivet Dog DNA Kit is $109, but right now, you can get it for $94.99, 12% off.
