I recently did an Embark DNA test on one of my dogs, and was surprised by how many Common Genetic Conditions the GSD have been found.

Tiger tested clear for all common conditions and all other conditions from all other dogs, also tested as a long coat carrier (bummer), they were spot on with her weight (65 lbs.).

Overall I'm pleased and relieved that she's less likely of developing stuff like bladder stones, renal issues, DM, and hemophilia.

I'm wondering how many breeders rely on such tests to weed out possible health issues with their breeding lines?

What is the cost of this test?

Or more importantly, what rate of accuracy does the test have?

OFA recognizes the results from Embark so I would guess they have accurate results. I just sent one off for my DDR girl can't wait to get them back

Tried to get to the OFA site to see what tests are recognized, but it's not functioning?
