Disease Test Catalog

A large part of our work involves research.

In order to determine which diseases should be tested for each breed, we've read and analyzed the published literature. Most diseases are found in a specific breed, but your dog could be at risk for diseases in a related breed.

Below are the diseases for which testing is available.

Select a disease to get more information, find common symptoms, and read about helpful testing tips. You can alternatively search for diseases specific to your particular breed.
