Description - Stuff you need to know

This pack gives you the 'Essential' range of DNA Health Checks for any breed of dog. Meaning the list below is the top 29 problematic diseases that affect most dogs. It's not conclusive - hence why we also offer 175 and 250 tests, but it suits caring dog parents who want to do a general check without having to pay for all the others.

This test is ideal for any dog, meaning anything from a random scruffy rescue, right through to a purebreed. They all need your love no matter what.

With Safehaus you get to discover exactly what genetics your dog has, so that if he or she is carrying anything iffy, so that you can give the report to your vet, and map out the perfect care plan.

This pack is also combined with the Police Dog Theft DNA Register. Giving you peace of mind that if the unthinkable happens, and even if the microchip gets removed by a thief (which is common), then Police find your dog, they can (and do) swab dog's saliva, and your Lab comes right back home again. Happy days.

You even get the pretty cool smartphone or PC dashboard at no extra cost. So all your info in one convenient place should you need it in a hurry.

The list of diseases checked is below. Note we test each gene mutation twice, using two independent methods, ensuring 99.9% accurate results in about 2 weeks. 

Note: if you get stuck with any of these crazy-sounding disease names, don't worry, as we or your vet can happily translate.

Q:- What are the most common cases where people waste tons of money at a vet - When a dna health check gave the answers?

A:- There are many diseases that vets cannot diagnose. Take Ichthyosis as an example.
Ichthyosis is an inherited condition of the skin affecting a wide range of dogs. The age of onset and severity of disease are highly variable, however most affected dogs present before one year of age with flaky skin and dull hair. Over time the skin develops a greyish colour and appears thick and scaly, especially over the abdomen. The symptoms may progress to severe scaling all over the body, may improve with age, or may come and go over the dog’s lifetime. They are then always at increased risk for skin infections.
The dna test is a simple way to a definitive diagnosis and the vet can move to a more tailored treatment plan. Vets are capable of making a diagnosis without the genetic test, if they recognise it or have experience with it. However, the genetic test could fast track the process. There are many similar conditions; Exercised-Induced Collapse (EIC), Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Von Willebrand Disease (VWD). All of which are nasty and can work out pretty expensive if not identified early on.

Q:- Can you give an example of when a dog has some sickness, and the vet took a while trying different solutions, only to eventually recommend a dna test

A:- Degenerative myelopathy (which is an inherited neurologic disorder of dogs) or other neurological diseases (EIC, Episodic falling syndrome, any of the Neuronal Ceroid lipofuscinoses) are known to be unidentifiable by Vets, and all pretty nasty.
Vets will often go through skin scraping, bacterial culture, fungal culture and biopsy - all at a cost tot the dog owner - prior to getting a diagnosis. Genetic testing with the clinical signs would give them strong evidence of the underlying condition.
The genetic test could identify this condition well before onset. In other words, its better to have a proactive approach than a reactive, for the sake of your wallet, and also stress levels and just being a good dog parent.
