Is there a minimum age my dogs can be tested?

It is recommended that the pups are at least 4 weeks old and weaned before taking the swab.

Ideally the pups should not have eaten for 2 hours before the swab is taken and have there mouths rinsed with water.

If there are several puppies in a litter and being tested, it is preferable to keep the pups apart while taking the swabs.

The swab sampling kits are stable at room temperature so can be ordered when the pups are younger, ready for use once weaned.
