MDR1 Genetic Testing
Did you know that certain breeds of dogs and cats have a genetic predisposition that causes adverse reactions to commonly used medications? Collies, Australian shepherds, and long-haired whippets are some of the most commonly affected breeds of dogs. Thankfully, researchers at WSU have discovered the cause and developed a test that can tell you if your pet has the MDR1 gene mutation.
Every year we save the lives of more than 100 cats and dogs thanks to our on-site blood bank and the pet volunteers who donate blood. Give your dog or cat a chance to be someone’s hero.
