Mars Veterinary™ Launches the Most Comprehensive DNA-Based Mixed Breed Test for Dogs
Since rescuing her mixed breed dog Sol three years ago, Becky Shelton, like millions of other dog owners, often wondered what breeds make up her mystery dog's background. Beyond satisfying her curiosity, Shelton wanted to find what potential issues may affect Sol throughout his life. But it wasn't until Shelton's veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker, invited her to be among the first ever to use the science of canine genetic testing through the WISDOM Panel™ MX test, that she finally learned Sol's real genetic identity.
Now this same technology is available nationwide to the millions of mixed breed dog owners eager to learn the breed makeup of their beloved pets. Mars Veterinary™, a division of MARS® Incorporated - a world leader in pet care - has just launched WISDOM Panel™ MX, the most comprehensive DNA-based mixed breed test for dogs and is rolling out in veterinary clinics and hospitals starting today. The test can detect more than 130 breeds that may be present in a mixed breed dog, covering 99 percent of American Kennel Club (AKC) registered dogs, and is the only test of this type being offered exclusively through veterinarians.
