How do I go about getting DM testing done? Is it a blood or cheek swab test? Can it be done at most vet offices? I don't think either one of the parents of my puppy got tested for this, or if they did, it's not information that is easy for me to get. So I want to just check my puppy myself to know.

Is this a reputable place to use, has anyone used it before?

DM is a cheek swab test, at least OFA's is. You can order it from OFA. They mail you the kit, you do the cheek swab at home, then mail it out to to the University of Missouri. No vet appointment necessary.

Great thank you, I'm glad OFA does it. Thank you for the link!
