Would you like to have a permanent, fail-proof ID for your dog?
Canine Profiling (Geno-typing) is used to establish a secure, permanent ID for your BULLY in case it is lost or stolen. Using the same technology we use to establish parentage among BULLY families, the unique set of allele sizes for the dog are tested and recorded.
BULLY sample collection is quick, easy and painless. A BUK certified vet can collect a sample using a buccal swab for collecting cheek cells.
You will receive a detailed bully Profile (Geno-typing) Certificate showing your dog's unique allele sizes along with an explanation of the results.
All DNA includes a 3 generation pedigree platinum stamped guaranteed with upgrade options as in , 5 generation picture pedigrees, and or a ten generation scroll.
The Mixed Breed DNA Test can detect over 190 of the most popular dog breeds including: only $88.00

Cystinuria in Newfoundlands
A metabolic disorder that can cause stones in the urinary tract.
Phosphofructokinase Deficiency (PFK) in English Springer Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel

Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PK) in West Highland Terriers
A defect in red blood cells that leads to anemia and liver failure.
Fucosidosis in English Springer Spaniels
