Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed is a simple DNA test that helps reveal the breeds in a dog’s ancestry. Finding out a dog’s breed makeup does more than just satisfy curiosity. With knowledge of the breed mix, including physical and behavioral traits, you can work with a veterinarian to develop a more targeted care plan for your dog. This one-time investment helps owners feel confident they are providing their dog with the best care possible.
Testing is as easy as 1-2-3.1. Simply collect a sample from the inside of your dog's cheek with the included swabs.
Once you receive your test kit, you must go to the Wisdom panel website to register your Kit ID number. Failure to do so will delay the process and impact our ability to send your test results within our published timeframe.
Each box includes an instruction sheet, two swabs, a submission form, and a pre-paid envelope.
Wisdom Panel Insights breaks down a dog’s lineage the following way:
Significant Breed - At least 50% of your dog’s DNA comes from this breed, so you are likely to see some physical and behavioral traits from this breed represented unless some of the genes are recessive.
Intermediate Breed - At least 25% of your dog’s DNA comes from this breed, so you may see some physical and behavioral traits represented in your dog.
Minor Breed - At least 12.5% of your dog’s DNA comes from this breed, so it is unlikely that this breed’s physical traits are visually represented unless some of the genes are dominant.
Wisdom Panel is used to help determine the breed makeup of a dog. It is not designed to determine which disease traits, if any, might be present in a dog.
Yes. Wisdom Panel test kits are designed for dogs of all ages and are safe and easy to use at any stage in a dog's development.
Wisdom Panel test kits are ideal for dog owners who are looking for an inexpensive, do-it-yourself kit that reveals their dog's ancestry. At Mars Veterinary, we believe that all dogs can benefit from the discovery of their ancestry. Wisdom Panel kits were created to provide dog owners access to unrivaled breed detection inexpensively and in a convenient way.
There are currently three consumer swab tests available which test against our database of known breeds, Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed, Wisdom Panel Purebred and Wisdom Panel Designer Dog. All of these tests serve different purposes. Generally, if you are not sure of the breeds present in your dog, or if you have a mixed breed dog, you should purchase Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed. If you believe that your dog is a purebred and you believe you know what breed it is, then you should purchase Wisdom Panel Purebred. This test will indicate if the dog's DNA is within the test parameters for the breed you indicate and give you a deeper understanding of your dog's genetic makeup for that specific breed. If you believe that your dog has two purebred parents, (i.e. your dog is a hybrid, otherwise known as a "designer dog") then you should purchase Wisdom Panel Designer Dog. If you are purchasing Wisdom Panel as a gift for someone, we would recommend that you purchase Wisdom Panel Mixed Breed, as this is the broadest test and does not require that the breeds be identified prior to testing.
Once the sample has been received at the lab it generally takes 2-3 weeks for the sample to be tested, results generated and report available for download on our website. You will receive email notification when the report is available for download.
