About 30% of dogs have genetic diseases, passed down by their parents. Some are difficult for vets to diagnose. Without a DNA test, they would require MRI Scans or expensive or painful testing to be completed.
Vets will always recommend you do a DNA Health Check, as they cost less than other methods and can be much kinder to your dog.
If something serious crops up in the results, they don't have to waste time and your money doing skin scraping, bacterial culture, fungal culture and biopsy prior to getting a diagnosis.
Note: Test results are 99.9% accurate, and a full Vet-level breakdown is provided for you.
Back in Feb '21, dog theft in the UK had reached epic levels. It was all over the news; BBC, newspapers, social media. We learned that thieves were taking microchips out of dogs using scanners, so that the dog lost it's identity and became untraceable, before the thieves cashed in. However, we knew a thief can never change your dog's DNA.
So, we spoke to Police and Crime Prevention bodies and created the UK's first Dog DNA Register.
Now Police can (and do) swab dog saliva when they recover stolen dogs. Safehaus provide the service for free to Police.
This means you could get your dog back if it is positively identified.
One fee, one time, and a lifetime of extra safety for your dog
In a word yes, though if you feel you might struggle yourself then we do allow someone else to be named as the sampler. This could be a friend, family member or a vet. Also remember you don't need to open the dog's teeth. Just rub the swab inside the cheeks and on the gum.
Yes of course. These are ideal caring presents for dog owners. As long as we are informed of the legal owner when the pack is activated, then we're all good.
No Safehaus do not offer any dog breed test products as we know them to be about 80% accurate. You can find out more about breed testing here. We only provide proper services that will improve dog health dog security or dog walker safety, as they make more of a difference.
