International DNA testing company EasyDNA launches the Canine Genetic Age test – an innovative DNA test that identifies a dog’s true genetic age and their full breed composition using only a mouth swab sample.
East Sussex, United Kingdom December 12, 2018 – Following the launch of a number of dog DNA testing products, EasyDNA has introduced a brand new Dog DNA test, the Dog Genetic Age test. Commenting on the launch, the company spokesperson stated, “The Company is pleased to offer the first Canine Telomeres test on the market. Telomere testing has long been used to acquire information about the cellular age for humans, and now it is finally available for dogs! The Canine Genetic Age test is an excellent tool for taking care of a dog’s health and wellbeing since it identifies their age at a biological level and includes the same breed identification service offered by the popular Dog Breed DNA test. Thanks to this combination, the client is provided with a unique look into the canine’s health based on their telomere length and genetic makeup”.
EasyDNA’s new test can help dog owners improve the life of their four-legged friends in numerous ways since it can provide them with detailed and valuable information such as age determination, potential health risks, predicted longevity and unique personality traits and exercise routines expected from each breed in their dog.

As for turnaround time, the results are available within 2 to 3 weeks from receipt of samples at the laboratory.
