Two main types of information are gleaned from testing: identifying what breeds are in a mixed -breed dog and looking for the presence of genetic mutations causing disease. Now that we know what genes are normally present and in what order, we can compare any dog's genes to that normal. We know the normal order of genes for most of the dog breeds. Scientists have also found that many diseases have a genetic basis, and have found genetic markers for them.
There are three main companies performing dog breed identification. The Wisdom Panel can detect the most number of breeds, 157, and is done on a blood sample, so a visit to your veterinarian is needed. More information can be found at wisdompanel.com. The Canine Heritage Company can identify 105 breeds and uses a sample from a cheek swab. More information can be found at canineheritage.com.

Mobile Unit/House Call Hours
I just switched to Herrmann after moving to Noblesville and bringing my horses home. I love that I can get the cats, dog and horses all done at the same time. Farm/house call fees for the mobile unit are wonderful, especially compared to other options out there. I have used the mobile unit for a cat, dog and all of my horses. I have also been to the clinic with a sick barn cat. Great doctors who take their time. I never felt rushed! Very happy!
