Dog Age Test

Regular price

The Embark Age Test estimates your dog's calendar age by measuring DNA methylation. When you have an estimate of how old your dog is, you can better provide age-appropriate care — and get them a birthday present or two.

The Age Test is currently unavailable to purchase while our scientists refine, evaluate, and optimize it. In the meantime, join the waitlist to receive updates.

Insights include:

  • Your dog's calendar age and estimated birthday
  • Your dog's life stage — from puppy to adult to senior
  • Nutrition and supplement suggestions
  • Activities to keep your dog fit and active
  • Tips for preventative health care

Our science team is continuously testing and updating our model to improve the product

Every dog tested can contribute to aging research that will help dogs live longer, healthier lives

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 60 seconds. Get that swab nice and slobbery!

  2. 2. Activate & mail

    Activate your kit online and return your sample. Shipping is free within the US, so drop the pre-paid mailer in any USPS box and it’s on its way.

  3. Phone with age test result
    3. Results within 8 weeks

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