FAQs

We test for over 130 genetic health risks and 20 physical traits. Explore them all here.

While UA can screen for over 130 genetic variants associated with increased disease risk, we cannot provide medical diagnoses. We provide a free vet consultation with our in-house vet to help you understand the report better.
Urban Animal aims to detect the presence of genetic diseases in your pet. There is a possibility that our test will discover that your pet is at risk of developing an incurable disease. Unfortunately, we cannot help cure these diseases but the knowledge can help your pet avoid costly misdiagnoses or unnecessary, expensive, possibly life threatening invasive testing later. We recommended working with your vet to come up with a plan to minimise / mitigate the effects of disease in your pet.

Urban Animal values both privacy and scientific openness. Your information and your pet’s information will never be shared with anyone without your explicit permission. We do work with other scientists and researchers to use aggregated, non-identifying information to drive scientific discoveries. If you do not want your dog to be a part of that research you can reach out to us here and inform us

Yes. You will be able to get help interpreting your results from Urban Animal’s team of vets and genetics experts. We offer one complimentary consultation with our experts. Please visit our contact page to get access to all modes to communicate with our team.
