How accurate are the results?

To ensure that your results are as accurate as possible we require good quality DNA, for this reason it is very important that when you obtain a swab sample from your dog, you do so thoroughly (more information about how to swab your dog can be found here).

The tests we offer are close to 100% accurate at detecting the target variant, they work by finding particular sections of DNA that contain the genetic disease causing mutation. It is possible that other natural changes to the DNA that do not cause disease may interfere with the targeting of the specific mutation, resulting in false results. However, this is very rare and very unlikely.

It is also possible that the disease caused by the target DNA variant can also be caused by some other variants that the test will not detect. For this reason we cannot guarantee that any test is 100% accurate at detecting the target disease, as is the case for all genetic testing services.
