    Hi guys,

    From a breeder standpoint, which companies do you go through as far as genetic testing for your dog?
    which do you think is best? Are there multiple? Pros and cons? If you guys have any experience, please let me know! i really only know of pawprint genetics. do you know of any others that r good and just as reputable? Give me your top 3 suggestions. How long does it take on average ??? Thanks in advanced :)

    If you're in the UK, the UK KC now have a very reasonably priced 'Combibreed' deal - they test for all conditions they will register on their database (prcd-PRA, EIC, SD2, HNPK and CNM) in one swab for £135. I'm doing this with my current pup and have just received the pack with swab to send back. I don't know whether to recommend it as I haven't completed the process yet but so far it's great.

    Previously I've used Laboklin but paid separately for each test which worked out more expensive.
