    Dna testing

    Hi guys random question how long does dna testing take to get a result and how expensive is it as since ive been a member i have seen numerous posts of people doubting the full breed of their frenchies and say they are getting them tested and we never see the results

    Also does anyone have any idea how much health testing is for a frenchie as after buying rocco from a friend and told he had an amazing bloodline and having names of well known dogs thrown at me, there is something still not quite right, and think i may have been led down the rabbit hole a little

    Rocco is certainly looking a pure bred Frenchie on the photos you have been posting.
    However, there is a list of general dna tests and prices on the Bought By Many website.

    The cheapest breed check test is the Wisdom Panel. The current edition is Wisdom Panel 3, but the Wisdom 2 still seems to be available at £67 on Amazon, and you may find it cheaper if you shop around. I was lucky enough to win one of these kits in a competition, and used it on my puppy farm bred boy. (At that time they could be bought for about £40!). It was simple to do, and the results were back quicker than I expected. Our thread about using it is half way down the first page of the Members Forum - Wisdom Panel DNA Test, dated 3.12.18.
    I believe the Embark test is the most comprehensive, but it is well over £100. Unless you really need to know what colours your dog may be carrying, or to worry yourself about possible future health concerns, I think this would probably be more complex than you need.
    As you are not going to be breeding from Rocco, I don't think you need to do this though.

    Hi carol thanks for you informative response the dna test wasnt for rocco just a general query as obv we have had at leats 2 little frenchies the one with the longer snout which didnt see the parents and met them at mcdonalds or whatever it was , and the one which we thought maybe a boston terrier cross both said they was gonna get the dogs tested and we never heard anything not that it matters to us or themselevs as long as the dog is loved, just wanted to know if what we suspected eas right

    I know rocco is 100 percent as seen both parents , the health test its more the fact i have been told his dad is magicman an american import and then it changed to his grandad etc and then a different dog, i think he may have to have his nostrils worked on eventually as they seem very closed to the likes of bronsons althohgh i know he has had surgery.

    Im just starting to think my friend although was an unplanned littler so ive been led to believe i think was more about the pound notes than the health of the dogs if that makes sense although rocco is not poorly i dont think the same process was adopted that a responsible breeder would follow

    I personally use UC Davis or Animal Genetics to test for DM, CMR1, HUU, and JHC. These are over $100 to test one animal. Its very simple to do as well. You can request sample swabs to be sent to your home through their websites. You brush those swabs on your pups cheek. Send that swab in along with a check and in 2-3 weeks you will have results. While genetic testing certainly provides great information, a thorough physical exam is also very valuable and should be done as well.
    Here are links to where I have done testing before!

    Hope this helps!
