While on the Mars tour at BlogPaws, we received a Wisdom Panel 3.0 DNA test kit. I actually had it in my head that I didn’t want to DNA test Cooper and so had passed on an opportunity to do so already this year. But then…
I looked it over, and saw that they’ve added in a new component since we did the 2.0 version with Lucas: Multidrug Sensitivity (MDR1) genetic mutation screening. Now, if any dog is going to have a genetic mutation that can result in serious adverse drug reactions, it’s Cooper, the dog who’s allergic to nearly everything. So, even though I was totally sure a month or so ago that I wasn’t going to do a DNA test on Coop, well, here I am doing a DNA test on Coop!
Some stats: He’s about 4.5 years old, 38 pounds (underweight), approximately 21 inches at the shoulder (approx… he wouldn’t stop wiggling), myriad health problems ranging from allergies to tremors, and seriously obsessed with squirrels.
Some pics, including two puppy pics:
I’m going to swab his cheek over the weekend and hit the post office on Monday! Will share the results as soon as they arrive.
So, what do you think?? Place your bets! What will the results will be?
Happy weekend, everyone!
