Family Tree Reconstruction
Aside from identifying the breeds that make up your four legged buddy, the Embark Dog DNA test also gives you a breed breakdown of your dog’s family tree, stretching back to the great grandparents. The Embark Dog DNA test uses algorithms to reconstruct this family tree, so it is not 100% accurate. Instead, it is the best prediction based on your dog’s DNA.
Some dog breeds are highly prone to some genetic diseases, but this doesn’t mean that all dogs from these breeds will develop these conditions. The Embark Dog DNA test analyzes your dog’s DNA for 200+ genetic health risks and gives you an accurate health profile of your pooch, including the genetic health conditions that your dog could potentially develop.
The Embark health screening test looks at health conditions affecting areas like the brain, heart, immune system, blood, skeletal system, eyes, spinal cord, bladder, kidneys, and several other areas.
The health screening test also provides you with information about the genetic diversity of your beloved fido, as well as the coefficient of inbreeding, which is a measure of the level of inbreeding.
In case the test detects health variants that could be potentially problematic, the results report will explain what this means for your dog and their offspring, and what action you can take to reduce the risk of your dog developing this problem.
