This is recommended for Ridgebacks between 3 months and 2 years of age, and can be requested by owners, breeders, and veterinarians! This package is available for multiple dogs at a time, but individual requests must be made for each dog. Owners will receive formal genetic testing results and a report with interpretation of Holter results and genetic consultation provided by Dr. Kate Meurs, PhD, DACVIM. All results are confidential and will be emailed directly to the email address provided on this request form.
