How it Works

How it Works

Why establish cat paternity with a DNA test?

A cat paternity test is carried out by comparing the DNA profiles of the mother and father to that of their offspring to confirm with certainty the relationships. There are several uses for such a test including the following:

 

  • Ensure that you are purchasing a cat with a DNA-certified pedigree
  • Offer your customers the guarantee of a DNA-certified pedigree
  • Eliminate doubts that your litter may have multiple fathers

Cost of our Cat Parentage Test

The cat parentage test is offered at £129 this includes a sample of the mother, father (tomcat) and 1 offspring. Naturally, one can test more than one offspring at the same time, and more than one father can be included in the same test. There will be a cost for testing any additional cats.

Important Note:

For accurate cat paternity test results, it’s essential to include a sample from the mother cat. Without the mother’s sample, confirming the father’s identity cannot be guaranteed with 100% certainty. Including the mother’s DNA significantly enhances result accuracy.

How is the cat parentage test carried out?

Carrying out a cat parentage test is very simple and straightforward. DNA samples are collected by means of oral swabs that are rubbed in the inside of the mouth of each cat participating in the test. Upon ordering your test, EasyDNA will send you a Cat DNA sample collection kit containing all that is required to carry out your test. Thanks to our kit, you will NOT incur expensive veterinary fees, or draw blood samples to carry out your test, which might cause unnecessary stress on your cat. Once collected, the DNA samples need to be sent back to the laboratory for testing.

Your Results

Your cat parentage test results will be sent to you by email in 7 to 10 working days from receipt of samples. In this report you will be told if the parentage of the tomcat is confirmed as being the biological father of the offspring. This is also described as being an ‘inclusion’. In cases where the tomcat is not found to be the father of the offspring, he is ‘excluded’ as being the biological father of the cat being tested. The results of the cat DNA Paternity Test are highly accurate and use an ISAG standard 15-DNA marker panel.

You also select to receive the result in an official format issued by the laboratory for a nominal fee of £30.

You can order the Cat Paternity DNA test directly from our website. If you require further information regarding this test, please contact our Customer Service or email us directly.

I was so concerned about helping my dog but the vet said their test would be around $400 and prescribed Aloquil. When I research it I found that it could be harmful to her. No way I was going to do that. The results of the allergy test has been so helpful in choosing her food and other products like shampoo and being able to avoid her sensitivity triggers.

This was a great start for me to determine food allergies for my dog. Turns out the vegetable in the dry food recipe was one of the bigger culprits! Thank you!

Your dog should not eat before getting its sample collected as food can affect the test results. We recommend either taking your dog’s sample first thing in the morning or waiting for the longest possible time between meals to collect the sample.

Some dogs may be sensitive to chicken eggs but not chicken meat, while some dogs may be sensitive to fish meal but not a particular type of fish. This is normal. Each allergen has unique components and characteristics, and a dog’s reaction to an allergen may not necessarily equate to sensitivity to its subsets.

Yes, different dog breeds may be more susceptible to specific allergies.

Reactions can be managed by avoiding the allergens which trigger them. For example, if your pet has a sensitivity to a particular food item then eliminating this from their diet will help eliminate the negative impact. It is also possible to manage them through the use of medication or medicated shampoos – however, many times such treatments only mask a problem without finding the root cause. Also since more than one allergen may be causing reactions in your dog this may require more than action to eliminate all discomfort and reactions. We strongly advocate involving your vet in all decisions regarding what actions to take.
