Vomdarka Paddy’s DNA Testing Results

Our Fox Red Labrador Vomdarka Paddy has been fully DNA screened and I am very proud to share his results with you. Paddy has been screened as part of the UK’s official Kennel Club DNA testing scheme of which he is fully clear and I will talk about the individual tests below. Vomdarka Paddy’s DNA results are registered on his Kennel Club paperwork and can be viewed online.

So what does the testing involve?

DNA testing is safe and only takes a few minutes to complete. DNA is taken with a Buccal (cheek) Swab and sent off to a uk based laboratory called Laboklin. Laboklin is one of the few laboratory’s in the UK that is recognized by the Kennel Club. It takes between 1-3 weeks for the results to be received.  We were delighted when the results of our Fox red Labrador Vomdarka Paddy came back fully clear of all 7 DNA tests.

What types of results are there ?

 

You may already know there are two types of results that are recorded on Kennel Club paperwork, DNA and Genetic. Genetic results are passed down from two clear parents who have had their own testing previously completed which will be recorded as ‘Hereditary Clear’ automatically on your puppies paperwork and will only change to ‘clear’ if the puppies have their own DNA testing completed.

So what are the 7 DNA tests for Fox Red Labradors?

MCD , STGD, EIC, HNPK, SD2, CNM, PRCD-PRA

A clear dog can not be affected nor pass on the diseases to its off spring, so if you are looking for a Fox Red Labrador Stud it is important you research what testing has been completed.  It is equally as important when searching for a Fox Red Labrador puppy that you know the puppies health testing background.

Let’s Take a closer look

Let’s start with the latest DNA tests added by the kennel club.
