Animal DNA testing involved testing of animals for breeders to establish the paternity of offspring or the genetic diseases their animal may have and perhaps develop. Equine DNA testing is the specific test for horses, but there is also feline DNA testing and dog DNA testing. Other uses include planning the coat colour of pets by selecting the pets which are carrying the genes that encode a given colour. Samples for animal DNA tests are done non-invasively using mouth swabs and thus, such tests have the advantage of not necessitating the presence of a vet. DNA profiling is also common and such a test will ensure that your dog has its own genetic ID which will thus help avoid confusion with other pets. Bird sexing is also become as accurate as possible thanks to bird sex distinction based on sound genetic evidence.
