Mars Veterinary, which specializes in pet care and canine genetic breed identification, has developed a 3-in-1 do-it-yourself dog DNA test that allows owners to identify the breeds that make up their mixed-breed dog.
The Wisdom Panel 2.0 from Mars Veterinary tests for more than 200 dog breeds and varieties, including all American Kennel Club registered breeds. Pet owners can use a cheek swab to collect DNA and mail back the sample in a pre-paid package. The test results help answer questions about their dog's appearance, behaviors, wellness needs and more.
