WISDOM PANEL DOG DNA TEST ANSWERS MIXED-BREED QUESTIONS: EVERY RESCUE DOG OWNER WILL LOVE THIS
ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED JUNE 12, 2008
Two weeks after a painless blood extraction courtesy of Dr. Danielle Rawlins at the Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital, I received the results of Truman’s Wisdom Panel Canine breed identification DNA test. The eight-pages of customized results were surprising and the information that accompanied the results was cooler than I ever imagined.
The DNA test definitively answered all the breed questions i had about my rescue dog Truman. Truman is built of six different breeds: Irish Terrier, Border Terrier, Mastiff, Bulldog, Bullmastiff and Staffordshire Terrier.
Wisdom Panel DNA test, the most extensive canine DNA test around (detecting 134 AKC recognized breeds), is fun as well as informative.
Immediately, the results explained some of his personality quirks and demystified some of the history questions I had prior to his adoption. For the longer term, I know am aware of some of the potential health risks as Truman ages. The info empowers his veterinarian and I, actually saving me money by eliminating the need for future health screenings.
I highly recommend this for every dog lover.
