Our analysis allows you to deepen your knowledge of your four-legged friend and provide him with the loving care he deserves.

MDR1 defect analysis.

If your dog carries the MDR1 gene defect, this can lead to life-threatening intolerance to certain substances. This reaction can be triggered by anesthetics, spot-on preparations, deworming medications and the like. Not only herding dog breeds, but also mixed breeds are affected by this genetic defect. Testing is the only way to rule out this defect, as your dog does not show any external signs of illness. It is important to perform this test to ensure your dog's health and avoid potential dangers.

Genetic weight prediction

The genetic weight prediction for your dog is a guideline that includes minimum, maximum and expected weight based on genetic predictions. However, it is important to note that genetic weight does not always reflect actual reality. Factors such as diet, activity level and individual metabolic rate can influence actual weight. Regular vet visits are recommended to monitor your dog's weight and ensure he remains healthy. Your veterinarian can help you determine the ideal weight and create an appropriate diet and exercise plan.
