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!

Key Features of the Dog Parentage Test

Why establish dog paternity with a DNA test?

A dog paternity test is carried out by comparing the DNA profiles of the dam (mother) and sire (father) to that of their offspring. This test is done using simple oral swabs and can be carried out by anyone- the assistance of a vet is not required.

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

Cost of our dog parentage test

The dog parentage test is offered at $169 and this includes a sample of the dam, sire and 1 offspring. Naturally, one can test more than one offspring at the same time, and more than one sire can be included in the same test. However, testing additional dogs comes at an extra cost.

Note: We always suggest including the sample of the mother as this can help us get a more accurate dog DNA test result. When we have the sample of the mother, we can easily eliminate her share of genetic inheritance.

How is the dog parentage test carried out?

Carrying out a dog 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 dog participating in the test. Upon ordering your test, EasyDNA will send you a Dog 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 sample in order to carry out your test, which might cause unnecessary stress on your dog.

Once collected, the DNA samples need to be sent back to the laboratory for testing. Note that, although we encourage testing of saliva using our simple kit, we do offer the possibility to test using other DNA samples such as blood or semen. Please contact us before sending any such samples to discuss any additional fees and the viability of using this sample.

Why test the mother?

Having the mother’s DNA makes testing more accurate. A sire may be falsely confirmed to be the biological father if the mother’s sample is not used. Having the mother’s sample helps the laboratory exclude her share in the genetic inheritance of the offspring. When the mother is not available, extended testing can be done to determine proper parentage.

Your Results

Your dog parentage test results will be sent to you by email in 10 working days from receipt of samples. In this report you will be told if the parentage of the sire ‘qualifies’ for a particular offspring, meaning that a particular sire is confirmed as being the biological father of the offspring. This is also described as being an ‘inclusion’.

In cases where the sire is not found to be the father of the particular offspring, he is described as ‘not qualifying’, and therefore he is ‘excluded’ as being the biological father of the dog being tested. The results of the dog DNA paternity Test are highly accurate and use a 16-DNA marker panel for routine parentage testing. In cases involving closely related dogs extended testing might be required.

Results are usually available within ten working days and are sent to you by email. You can order the Dog Paternity DNA test directly from our website. If you require further information regarding this test please contact our Customer Service or email us directly.

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.
