Embark for Veterinarians dog DNA screening kits provide you with genetic insights for your canine patients. You'll get genetic health risks, detailed breed ancestry, physical traits results, and genetic coefficient of inbreeding (COI).

Built with veterinarians in mind. Create customized care plans based on your canine patients'  unique genetic profiles. Get actionable genetic health information to structure an individualized diagnostic, monitoring, or treatment plan.

Get ahead of hundreds of canine genetic diseases such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Protein losing nephropathy
  • Urolithiasis

Embark uses a research-grade DNA genotyping platform, developed by our industry-leading scientists at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. In addition, every dog owner that opts into sharing genetic data enables us to make future discoveries.

Veterinary practices may pay upon checkout or choose an invoice for Net-30 billing.

Product ships free in the continental U.S. Most packages arrive within 3-5 business days. Expedited shipping available. Pre-paid return shipping of swabs included (within the U.S. only).

Test results are provided digitally, usually within 2-3 weeks. (In rare cases, the turnaround time could be as long as 4-5 weeks, due to COVID-19 and USPS delays). 

Want to know what health conditions we test for? Search our database by breed or health condition using the fields below. Each health condition is included in your dog's results, all we need is a simple cheek swab.
