About the Animal Health Trust DNA Testing Service

Here at the Animal Health Trust we offer a comprehensive range of canine, feline, equine and cattle DNA testing.

As a charity dedicated to animal welfare we offer testing at a competitive price. Any profits are reinvested in research to develop more DNA tests to benefit animals around the world.

The Animal Health Trust (AHT) was one of the first laboratories in the world to offer DNA testing to dog owners.

Our first test, rcd1 progressive retinal atrophy in Irish Setters, was introduced in 1995.

We also offer DNA profiling and parentage testing services for dogs, horses and cattle.

From November 2016, we are the UK Kennel Clubs recommended canine profiling service, running the ISAG 2016 panel.

We are proud that our scientists working in the Kennel Club Genetics Centre at the Animal Health Trust have identified the mutations and developed the DNA tests for many of the disorders available.
