Although healthy individuals may suffer only short term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers. Always use proper caution when handling raw foods.

Keller’s Breed Revealed! (Dog DNA test)

Keller Black Dog DNA test

Keller Black – Did you guess his breed?

Yesterday, we told you about Keller. Keller’s mom, Sandy, who is one of our registered technicians, used the Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis DNA test to find out Keller’s breed mix, and you posted your guesses on our Facebook page.

Let’s see if you guessed right!

Drumroll, please…

Keller is half Bluetick Coonhound (purebred back to his great grandparents on that side). His other parent was part Beagle, Mixed Breed, and Rottweiler! He also tested negative for 13 disease causing gene mutations!

Curious about your dog’s ancestry? Learn more about the Royal Canin Genetic Health Analysis and how it is different from over the counter tests.

Call or contact us online today to schedule an appointment. You’ll only pay for the cost of the test. Results come back in 2-3 weeks – plenty of time to take bets from your friends and family!
