Wisdom Panel® Canine DNA Test — Dogs can’t talk, but their DNA can.™ Wisdom Panel provides a cheek swab DNA test designed to reveal the ancestry of dogs, going back three generations. Knowing a dog’s breed helps owners target behavior training, be smarter about nutritional planning and plan exercise activities that make the dog happy. The tests are easy to use and Wisdom Panel provides owners with an easy to read, detailed report on the dog’s breed results. Optimal Selection™ Genetic Breeding Analysis Mars Veterinary, the makers of Optimal Selection™ have partnered with Genoscoper Laboratories® of Finland to provide breeders with the ability to test for both breed-specific diseases and genetic diversity. Maintaining and increasing genetic diversity, may reduce the occurrence of inherited diseases and other known issues that can result from inbreeding. Testing for genetic diversity can help breeders decrease the incidence of producing affected puppies with recessively inherited diseases, by reducing the likelihood of mating two carriers of the same disease to produce afflicted offspring. Optimal Selection offers breeders the world’s first dog matchmaking tool that helps estimate the genetic impact of the planned mating pair on the puppies. Mars Veterinary and Wisdom Panel are divisions and products of MARS incorporated, the manufacturers of Pedigree and Royal Canin pet food.
