A dog's health isn't solely a product of genetics, but of diet, environment, and lifestyle. We'll help you give your dog the best of everything. Decode breed mix, screen for health conditions, find relatives — all this and more with Embark!

For example, did you know some dogs have a genetic mutation that makes them sensitive to many commonly used drugs, including some anesthetics? Drug-sensitive dogs can experience symptoms ranging from diarrhea, lethargy, seizures — even a coma. With Embark, you'll know if your dog has drug sensitivities so you can avoid potentially dangerous medications.

A heads up on Diego's health

Jane discovered that Diego had inherited a genetic health condition that meant it was very likely he would become blind as he got older.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy, PCRD

PRA is a retinal disease that causes progressive, non-painful vision loss. This type of PRA leads to difficulty seeing at nighttime, before eventually affecting daytime vision as well.

A veterinarian's recommendation

While there’s no cure for Diego’s condition, a vet suggested that a companion dog could help him through it. So they adopted Dixie. But when she saw Dixie’s Embark results, Jane found the biggest surprise yet…

A long-lost sister!

Embark’s Relative Finder revealed that Diego and Dixie are actually full siblings! Though they may be from different litters, Diego and Dixie have the same mom and dad.

How it works

  1. 1. Swab

    Gently swab the inside of your dog’s cheek pouch and under the tongue to collect saliva for at least 30 seconds.

  2. 2. Activate & mail

    Activate each kit online and send samples to our lab in their prepaid envelopes. Note: Samples remain stable for at least 6 months. However, kits expire two years after purchase, so please plan accordingly.

  3. 3. Results in 2-4 weeks

    We’ll do the rest and notify you by email when your results are ready. Log in to your account to learn all about your pup!

A better DNA test for happier dogs

Breed ID
Our dog found her passion
“We have been able to tailor Bandit’s training and exercise regime much better to suit her needs now that we know she is composed of primarily working breeds. Our dog found her passion in scent work and has been much happier since.”
– Loki K. Verified Buyer
Breed + Health
So grateful
"One of my dogs has a hereditary issue. Embark notified me immediately before completing the rest of the tests. I took Allie to the vet, unknown health issues were fixed and she is now on preventative treatment (prescription dog food). So grateful!"
– Vicky Y. Verified Buyer
