Novel New Dog DNA Test Turns Breeders Into Genetic Matchmakers
Date:10/24/2011

ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dog breeders in the United States and abroad now have access to a first-of-its-kind tool that will help them make better educated decisions on optimal breeding matches based on science. Mars Veterinary, the global leader in canine genetic breed identification, announced today the introduction of Optimal Selection, a DNA test that is expected to help breeders avoid many health problems associated with inbreeding while still being able to select the physical and behavioral traits that are important to them.

Optimal Selection will help breeders make better educated decisions on breeding matches based on science.  Breeders can make a preliminary assessment of a number of dogs based on their respective breeding goals.  When the list has been narrowed to the top candidates, they can then use Optimal Selection to help make their final breeding decision.  This new test uses a small blood sample to analyze and compare chromosomes of potential breeding pairs. By comparing the potential sire and dam's chromosomal similarities and differences, the breeder is given the opportunity to diversify the genetic makeup of their puppies and reduce the risk of recessive medical conditions while still being able to select for the physical and behavioral traits that are important to them.  The analysis provided by Optimal Selection utilizes a scoring system based on the dog's DNA that can be compared across multiple potential pairings.
