    Default Determining Color Factoring Question

    Is there a place that does genetic color factor testing. I have a black female that could possibly be Tri-factored or could quite possibly be black only. I am just curious.

    Kamron,

    VetGen is a good one. That's who I used.

    Even if you think you know, and even if you think it is clear based upon the parents listed on the pedigree - I'd still suggest you get the test done. It can be a valuable piece of info.

    If you knew, you'd not be asking!

    DDC veterinary is where I had my girl done. It was a cheek swab kit and was super easy. They have a deal for discounts on multiple testing off the same sample (coat color, EIC, CNM, etc.)
