Wisdom Health Optimal Selection Panel

The Optimal Selection panel tests for over 200 genetic health markers, 20 different traits, and genetic diversity. Most of these tests have nothing to do with our Collie breed, but the exciting news is that this test covers 7 health test and traits that are very important for Collies and the people that breed them. Here are the pertinent tests:

  • MDR1 – MultiDrug Resistance
  • DM – Degenerative Myelopathy
  • CEA* – Collie Eye Anomaly
  • DMS – Dermatomyositis A and B loci (not C locus)
  • Coat Type – Length (Rough factored Smooth)
  • Coat Color – Color and Patterns including Merle
  • GENETIC DIVERSITY – “The Breeders Tool Box”
    • Diversity of the individual dog tested
    • Diversity of the overall breed population
    • Diversity of the overall breed population compared to the diversity of other related breed populations
