Coby was biting his paws and scratching his skin non-stop. Having nearly given up I took the Dog Allergy test and now I know that my dog is allergic to corn, no more itching or paw biting!

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.

Key Features of the Canine Genetic Age Test

What is the Dog Genetic Age test? How does it work?

The Canine Genetic Age test is the first test of its kind on the market. The test determines the biological age and breed of the tested dog making it an ideal tool for taking control of a dog’s health and wellbeing. It is important to note that biological age is different than chronological or actual age since it provides insight into the predicted longevity and health of the tested canine. The Canine Age test measures the length of a dog’s telomeres, the protective caps at the end of each chromosome that tend to shorten with age. The telomere length is processed through the Canine Genetic Age database so that it can be matched with thousands of similar dogs to determine the dog’s true genetic age. As for breed identification, the test analyses the dog’s genetic makeup to discover the breeds found in their unique canine heritage. Take a look at the list of breeds tested HERE.

What can be discovered through the Biological Age and Breed?

The telomere length and cellular age of the dog can help the dog owner to:

  • determine the age when the dog’s actual age is unknown, a common issue with shelter dogs
  • take control of the aging process by carrying out lifestyle or dietary changes
  • recognise any signs of potential health risks such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer

The breed composition of the dog can help the dog owner to:

  • determine what breeds the dog is made up of, a complete breakdown of the composition is provided
  • determine personality traits, exercise routines and behaviours expected from each unique breed
  • recognise illnesses and health problems which can plague the dog’s particular breed mix

Important note: The Canine Genetic Age test is not diagnostic and does not offer medical advice. The test is for informational purposes only and currently Patent Pending.

What about Sample Collection and Test Results?

The DNA sample for this test is collected through mouth swabs which are provided in the sample collection kit. The dog owner is required to painlessly collect cells by gently rubbing the swab inside the dog’s mouth, against the inner cheek. The rubbing procedure should not take more than a minute and is completely painless. Once samples are in the laboratory, scientists will proceed to analyse the DNA found in the canine cheek cells.

Results for the Genetic Age test are available within 2 to 3 weeks from receipt of samples at the laboratory and sent via email. Why don’t you check out a sample report of this DNA test?

Important note: The dog owner is requested to provide the weight of their canine. If the tested dog is a puppy (less than 2.5 years old), scientists will not use their weight but place it in the anticipated group based on their breed and likely weight. Providing the dog’s weight can help scientists deliver more accurate results! Please make sure to select the respective option when ordering the test.

Are you only interested in the Genetic Age?

We also offer the option to perform the testing for genetic age only excluding breed identification for just $109. When testing only for the age, the dog owner is requested to provide the suspected or known breed(s) of their canine. It is always better if the owner provides the exact breed(s) but if they are not sure and suspect that they have a particular breed, scientists still can use that information (based on weight) to provide a more accurate result. Please make sure to select the respective option when ordering the test.

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.

Aside from food, there are also medications, such as antihistamines and steroids, that can affect the dog’s test results. Therefore, your dog must not be on any antihistamines, anti-itching and anti-inflammatory medication or steroid-based medications for 1-2 weeks before collecting its 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.

The following are some breeds that are sensitive to issues with food and/or airborne allergies: Maltese terrier, Pekingese, German Shepherd, Bull Terriers, Bichon Frise, English Cocker Spaniel, Brussels Griffon, American Hairless Terrier, Bohemian Terrier, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, American Pit Bull Terrier, Wire-Haired Fox Terrier, Chinese Crested/Powderpuff, Poodle, Irish Setter, English Bulldog, Pugs.

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.

The following are some breeds that are sensitive to issues with food and/or airborne allergies: Maltese terrier, Pekingese, German Shepherd, Bull Terriers, Bichon Frise, English Cocker Spaniel, Brussels Griffon, American Hairless Terrier, Bohemian Terrier, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, American Pit Bull Terrier, Wire-Haired Fox Terrier, Chinese Crested/Powderpuff, Poodle, Irish Setter, English Bulldog, Pugs.
