Description

Comprehensive Genetic Wellness Checkup
Studies have shown that cats and dogs are at least 100 times more likely than human to develop genetic disorders. An animal may appear healthy now, however, it can develop the genetic disease later in life and pass the defective gene to future generations. Amvet Biosciences can unlock the genetic code of DNA empowering you to plan and act proactively at an early stage.

The Urinary Health Plan (UH2) includes the following canine DNA tests

• Canine Cystinuria (Cys) 

Cys is a genetic disorder in which the kidney is not able to process cystine amino acid correctly. Cystine accumulates in the urine and clumps together to form calculi (kidney or bladder stone). These stones can cause serious illness such as urinary blockage. Cys may take several years to develop to serious condition.


• Hyperuricosuria (HUU) 

HUU refers to the presence of excessive amounts of uric acid in the urine. This trait predisposes dogs to form stones in their bladders or sometimes kidneys. These stones often must be removed surgically and can be difficult to treat. Hyperuricosuria is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. The trait can occur in any breed but is significantly more common in Dalmatian, Bulldog and Black Russian Terrier. Affected dogs are prone to develop bladder/kidney stones. The carrier frequency of HUU in affected breeds is about 14.5%.


How to Collect DNA Sample
1. Right before sample collection, please visually check the animal’s mouth to ensure it is clean and clear of any possible contaminants (e.g. food)
2. Write the name of the pet on the sampling tube.
3. Open the swab case and remove the swab, being careful not to touch the sponge tip.
4. Place the swab between the cheek and gum of the animal being tested. Scrub the swab against the inside surface of the cheek for at least 5 seconds to collect cheek cells (not saliva).
5. Allow the swab to air dry for 5 minutes.
6. Place the swab back into the original case.
7. Fill out the information in the DNA Sample Submission Form and make sure it matches the information on the sampling tube.
8. Mail the DNA samples and submission form to us.

Order Information
1. The sample collection kit (including 1 DNA collection tube, 1 DNA submission form and 1 envelop with return address) (per animal) will be mailed to your address within 48 hours after we received your order.
2. Once you have received our sample collection kit, please follow the guidelines mentioned above to finish the sample collection as soon as possible.
3. The DNA test certificate will be sent by mail and email in 12 working days after we received complete DNA samples and submission form.
