  • Animal Health Trust DNA testing service

We would like to thank our customers for their understanding and support over the last few months while our service was shut down. We have resumed our service and, while we are currently prioritising the processing of orders placed before we shut down, we are pleased to be once again able to offer our full range of canine, feline and equine genetic services. However, due to COVID-19 we are currently operating with reduced staffing levels; while we will endeavour to process samples and return results within 3 weeks of receiving the samples, we may not always be able to do so. In addition, staff are working from home where possible and the office is likely to be unmanned most of the time. Should you wish to contact us, we are retrieving voicemail and email messages, and responding as promptly as possible.
We appreciate your understanding and support. Please contact if you have any queries.

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.


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.
