We are still quite busy. Turnaround time is one to two working weeks.
Dogs come in so many different colours, and their coat colours are created by the interactions of many different genes. The D locus can create some special and beautiful coat colours, including the distinctive silvery coat seen in Weimeraners.
It is a good idea to choose our D locus panel when you aren't sure which D locus alleles might be found in your dog. However if you are experienced and already know what you are after, you can order individual tests for either just d (the common type) or just d2 (seen in Chow Chows and Thai Ridgebacks).
We report results from the D locus panel as either n for normal or negative, d, or d2. It does not include the rare d3 allele.
