RAMSEY, N.J. – Future generations of pets raised by breeders may be healthier, with dramatically lower rates of inherited disease, because of the emergence of affordable genetic testing services, like those offered by Orivet Genetic Pet Care.
Orivet Genetic Pet Care, a leading international personalized medicine and genetics testing organization, offers affordable DNA testing products that allow pet owners, breeders and veterinarians to better understand a pet’s specific genetic makeup. Using a range of molecular tests, Orivet allows breeders to pre-screen for genetic disease, improving breeding strategies and ensuring healthier generations of pets.
Orivet’s genetic testing services are currently being used by pet breeders, veterinarians and pet owners in over 40 countries worldwide. Available tests include full pure-breed profiles, breed identification DNA testing, DNA disease screening, DNA profiling and parentage confirmation, and more.
“I’ve been breeding Miniature American Shepherds, formerly known as Mini Aussies, for 20 years. This breed is plagued with many diseases, most relating to vision. For a long time there were only a few basic DNA tests available and each particular test had to be sent off to separate laboratories. Very few labs bundled tests. Discovering Orivet has been wonderful. The test results for diseases and also specific traits are printed on one easy to read sheet of paper,” said Alice Espey, owner of Circle A Farm and Orivet customer since 2014. “Long ago before genetic testing was available breeders were limited to trial and error, there was a lot of heartache involved. Testing is relatively inexpensive. Testing is an essential tool to help ensure you are producing the healthiest stock available.”
Results of each test are made available to breeders and pet owners through Orivet’s innovative wellness dashboard, where they can review their pet’s health data and access personalized life plans, customized for each specific pet.
“The ability to preemptively identify inherent disease is invaluable for breeders. The adoption of this technology is important because it could lead to far healthier generations of pets, reducing medical costs and improving the lives of dogs and cats,” said Dr. Noam Pik, CEO of Orivet. “In addition to providing breeders with our DNA testing services, we work closely with our network of breeders to promote responsible breeding practices.”
