A veterinary genetics company has come out with a new DNA test kit that claims to tell you not only a dog’s breed makeup, but also how big a mixed-breed puppy is likely to get and his risk for more than 100 genetic diseases. The Embark Dog DNA Test from Embark Veterinary is a simple at-home cheek-swab kit, with no blood required.


It is available online and through select veterinarians. To learn more, visit embarkvet.com.
