Today I am going to be sharing with y’all the results to… (yes, the title gave it away by now) Bebe‘s DNA test, which reveals what type of breed or breeds of dogs that she is. I’ll also be showing you what I did to get these results, what other information is also revealed in the results and how you can get this done for your dog(s) too!
Earlier in the year, one of my favorite Youtubers/beauty influencer – LustreLux a.k.a. Katy, decided to do this DNA test on her recently adopted pup, Turbo and it revealed that it was actually part Chow Chow, Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Chinese Shar-Pei and a whole bunch of other mixed breed groups. I thought it was so cool to find out what breeds your dog is actually made up of. Of course, I got a little self-conscious and thought it was a little weird and unnecessary that I wanted to do this for my pup and not myself. However, I quickly got over it and simply decided to just do it! Katy got her DNA test off of Amazon and so there I went to find what kind of options there were for dog DNA tests.
I found that the Mars Veterinary Wisdom Panel 3.0 Breed Identification DNA Test Kit had a combination of best reviews, #2 most reviews and a median price of $67.99. I bought it and with my Amazon Prime membership, I got it in the mail just two days after.
The instructions say to obtain cheek cells with the sterile swab provided, activate the DNA kit online for your own specific activation code, and then ship back the sealed swab in the already-paid-for-postage box and wait for results.
The instructions are easy to understand and illustrations for each step are also available inside the cover of of the postage box if you need more help. After sending the package back to the lab, I received an email when the lab received the specimen and when results were ready for viewing, which took exactly 18 days or 2.5 weeks.
It turns out that Bebe is…
Furthermore, it shows Bebe’s most probable family tree, an analysis of each breed that she is made of, and if she is negative or positive for the MDR1 gene mutation that causes dogs to have defective drug absorption and distribution, which is useful information for if and when your dog may need specific drugs & medications.
Lastly, it also gives you a “Statement of Authentication” that certifies the validity of Bebe’s genetic background. The certificate is signed by the R&D director of the lab.
I am so pleased by these results. I would never have guessed that Bebe is part cocker spaniel and I also didn’t know that so much additional information would be provided. I highly recommend using this test kit if you want to discover your dog’s pedigree.
