Animal DNA profiling can be carried out on your pets (dogs, cats horses and birds) as an alternative to other invasive types of identification (such as microchipping). Should you lose your pet and recover it, a simple DNA profile can prove rightful ownership, quickly and affordably.
Animal DNA profiling can also be a useful tool to prove pedigree through a paternity and/or maternity test. Use this test to confirm if one of both of the parents are really the biological parents of the baby animal (foal, pup or kitten). Kindly contact us for pricing. Please note that we can only genotype specific bird/avian species.
