Does Boronia Vet Clinic do DNA tests?

We do. The test we typically recommend works as follows:

  1. The owner brings their pet for a consultation. The limitations of the test are discussed and the best test is chosen. If a test is not performed a consultation fee is still applicable.
  2. The pet is scanned for a microchip and their microchip number recorded.
  3. A consent form is signed by the owner stating they understand the limitations of the test.
  4. A blood sample is taken.
  5. The submission form is signed and sent to the laboratory by the vet.
  6. Test results can take up to 3 weeks.
