How much does the Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test cost?
$75.00 per dog, which includes all laboratory processing fees and your DNA Breed Analysis report.
How long will it take for me to receive my testing kit?
Orders received prior to 3:00 EST are normally processed and sent out the same business day. Order received after 3:00 are normally processed and sent out the following business. Customers have the option to ship ground, 2nd day, or next business day delivery. Shipping fees apply.
Do I need the help of a veterinarian to take the DNA sample?
No. Our product allows you to perform the sample collection yourself, which will save you time, vet fees and a blood draw on your dog. Instead, cheek swabbing is done easily and comfortably by the pet owner, which avoids the trauma and expense of other sampling methods.
What type of sample is required for testing?
DNA testing is performed on the cheek cells, which have the same genetic information as the white blood cells found in blood. In order to collect the DNA samples, we include a soft-bristled nylon cheek swab brush in your testing kit. Our DNA Cheek Swab sampling method is specifically designed to be non-invasive and painless for your pet.
How do I send my DNA cheek swab to the lab for testing?
After you place your order you will receive a DNA sample collection kit in the mail. The kit will include everything you need to submit samples on your own. Once you've collected your DNA sample, slide it and the used cheek swab back into the provided pre-paid mailer and drop it in a mailbox - No postage is required. It's that easy!
How long does it take to get my results?
On average, test results are normally available within 2-3 weeks from receipt of the DNA sample.
How do you provide the results?
Results are made available to you via an online account. Instructions are provided in your kit.
How will the Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test results be reported?
Your dog lineage will be reported in the following way:
-Significant Breed - At least 50% of your dog's DNA comes from this breed, so you are likely to see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed represented unless some of the genes are recessive.
-Intermediate Breed - At least 25% of your dog's DNA comes from this breed, so you may see some physical and behavioral traits represented in your dog.
-Minor Breed - At least 12.5% of your dog's DNA comes from this breed, so it is unlikely that this breed's physical traits are visually represented unless some of the genes are dominant
DNA Results are normally reported within 2-3 weeks. (click here to see an example report)
What happens if my sample fails testing?
Unfortunately, a small percentage of samples do not contain enough cheek cells to complete the test. If this occurs, you will be contacted to resubmit another sample at no charge. Therefore, getting a good sample is important to minimize turn-around time, please carefully review the included DNA CheekSwab instructions.
What happens if my dog is composed of non-validated breed(s)?
The Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test can only determine if any of the validated breeds make-up your pet's breed composition. If your pet's composition contains non-validated breed(s), the test may identify a breed earlier in your dog's ancestry. This may cause identification of apparent unlikely breeds for your animal's composition.
Does the Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test work on dogs from outside the U.S.?
The Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test was developed using a population of breeds common to North America. Although we have plans on validating the test internationally, the current product has not been tested on populations of dogs in regions outside of North America, which may cause results to vary.
Can the Wisdom Panel 2.0™ Breed Test be used to determine if my dog is a purebred?
The Wisdom Panel 2.0™ test can be used to compare your dog genetically to known purebreds in a pre-specified breed to see how similar or dissimilar your dog is to members of that particular breed. However, the kennel clubs govern the definition of purity.
