The Royal Canin® Genetic Health Analysis™ report includes a summary of key physical and behavioral traits for each breed linked to your dog. Of course, the link between genetics and their expression in any one dog is complex. The unique combination of features is what makes your dog one of a kind.

When it comes to your dog, breed ancestry can influence a number of factors including:

  • Predicted adult size and weight as well as specific nutritional needs
  • Physical characteristics like coat color and the shape of the head, ears and tail
  • Behavioral traits including energy level, temperament and trainability

How it works:

Your veterinarian will draw a small, blood sample and send it to our lab where it is processed and analyzed. In 2-3 weeks you and your veterinarian will receive a comprehensive report on your dog's DNA. Contact your veterinarian to request your analysis today.
