Genetic Tests

This list contains available canine genetic tests which have been brought to the Foundation's attention and respect intellectual property laws.  If you know of additional genetic tests being offered, please contact the Foundation with the disease, breed, and laboratory contact information.   

While many of these discoveries were supported by the Foundation, this list does not imply they resulted from a AKC Canine Health Foundation grant and does not imply the Foundation endorses these tests.  This list is provided as a service to dog owners and breeders.  

For more information about genetic tests we recommend you read DNA testing and domestic dogs published in Mammalian Genome. This article discusses some of the factors that should be considered when using genetic tests.

A Complete List of Genetic Test Laboratories with contact information is available.

For more information about specific genetic tests, visit our Spotlight on Genetic Tests articles.
