NationWide Laboratories is delighted to bring the latest in DNA and disease risk profiling techniques to UK veterinary practices, powered by Orivet™.
What is the DNA profiling service from NationWide Laboratories?
DNA profiling enables you to predict the likelihood of disease for your client’s pet by analysing the animal’s genome and lifestyle. This allows you to tailor a lifetime of veterinary care in line with an individual patient’s potential risk factors.
Animals of all ages, but ideally puppies and kittens, can be genetically screened for hereditary diseases and traits buried within their DNA (Orivet™ Health Screen).
Identifying risks will enable you to instigate specific monitoring programmes or procedures to either prevent development of disease or ensure early diagnosis and treatment.
The genetic information, along with knowledge of diet, lifestyle, breed, age, weight, gender and environment are used to rank risks based on prevalence and severity and develop a personalised health and wellness plan (Orivet™ LifePlan), which is appropriate for the lifetime of the pet.
