We have received an important update via The Kennel Club regarding the availability of DNA testing at the Animal Health Trust Canine Genetic Services. Below is the statement released in The Kennel Club facebook post. Read on for their full statement:
Animal Health Trust Canine Genetic Services
"We are pleased to announce that the Animal Health Trust will resume the processing of canine DNA testing samples from Monday, 18 May 2020. For the time being only existing and outstanding orders will be processed, but we hope to be able to start selling tests again soon.
In light of the COVID 19 pandemic and ongoing efforts by the Trustees and Executive Committee to secure the long-term future of the Animal Health Trust, Canine Genetic Services will be operating with reduced staffing, and with team members working from home wherever possible. As a result of these unprecedented conditions we may not meet our usual turnaround time targets. In addition, there will not be anyone manning the telephone in the office, although voicemail messages will be retrieved, and calls returned.
If you have an outstanding order for a canine DNA test:
- if you have a swab kit for a test you have purchased, please send it to us ASAP
- if you have sent in your swabs but not yet received a result, we aim to process these samples and report the results within the next few weeks
Please check our website for any future updates.
Thank you for your support, patience and understanding.
Canine Genetic Services"
