This is a great time to get your dogs tested.
Thanks for posting Pattie, I was just going to ask if anyone had the scoop on 'sale days'. Perfect timing :)
what is the process to get your dog PRA certified?Is there a minimum age to have dog tested?
It is a simple DNA test and can be done at any age. You send in a cheek swab or blood sample to Optigen, and they send you back the result, usually within a week or two. www.optigen.com
I did my new pup at 4 months age, and his CERF was right after the PRA results
Thanks,do you get a kit from optigen?
You do not need a "kit" to submit to Optigen. Sterile swabs must be used for swab submissions. Those are available in many locations like vets, human doctors, human pharmacies, human hospitals. Same for blood samples. Tube is a "standard" one used by vets for a lot of other testing.
You just fill out the order form online; pay by credit card ... and send off your sample to them.
Discount days coming up Jan. 2-16 ... 20% discount on all tests; and additional 25% discount if you do more than one Optigen test. Labs have two ... prcd-PRA and RD/OS.
You must order your test during the discount days period. You have 30 days to get the sample to them.
Thanks for the info Gerry,I appreciate it
