What is included in the dog DNA test?Updated 3 months ago

The Basepaws Canine DNA Test checks over 280+ health markers, 30+ trait markers, and 300+ dog breeds. You will receive a kit containing a single, sterile cheek swab with stabilizing liquid, a biohazard specimen bag, and detailed instructions inside the box for proper sample collection. If the biohazard specimen bag is missing, you can simply use a plastic baggie to hold the swab sample during shipping.

Pre-paid return shipping is only included for U.S. customers only. International customers will be required to cover the return shipping of their pets' samples. Please see this section of our Help Center for more information on International Shipping.

Your pet's results will be posted to your online Basepaws account; we DO NOT print or mail ANY paper copies of the results. You may download a PDF and print it out at home or through a printing service if you choose. The DNA report is a living document that will continue to grow and change, paper copies are not sustainable or economical.

The report is currently English-only, but expanding our language options is being taken into consideration for the future. You may find a free online service that translates the report in English to a different language.

Oral Health Results are NOT included in the dog DNA test- they are exclusive to cats only at this time.
