We can DNA test your dog
That’s right test your dog’s DNA, as we all know knowledge of your dog’s DNA is important to their health and wellbeing.
The smarter you are about your dog’s past, the smarter you can be about his future. Dogs are like people. They inherit physical and character traits from breeds in their family tree. They also pass along genetic disorders from generation to generation.
Your mixed-breed dog is a mixed bag of genetic traits. Understanding their ancestry helps you and your veterinarian create an effective health and wellness program.
A simple blood test can help us to:
your dog’s genetic make-up back to their great grandparents by comparing their genetic signature with more than 200 breeds, types and varieties.
your dog’s target genetic adult weight range
your dog’s recommended nutritional program, and create an effective care and wellness program in conjunction with your veterinarian
a better understanding of your dog’s breed-related behavioural characteristics
for your dog’s breed-related risk of developing certain genetic diseases*
*Available upon request and at additional cost, for up to three months using the same blood sample
ADVANCE® Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test
The ADVANCE® Mixed Breed Identification DNA Test helps to remove the guesswork for both you and your veterinarian. The test can help clear the confusion, unlocking secrets hidden in your dog’s DNA.
By learning the breeds in your dog’s DNA, you can make it easier for your veterinarian to customise the most effective training, nutrition and medical treatment for your pet.
Why not ask the staff so they can help you find out what type of dog you really have?

What an experience, amazing ♡
From walking in the door...to keeping my best friend in great health. Thanks Vets of Geelong for the level of care, and to Josie and James especially for their genuine care and empathy toward our family. #memorable

Can not recommend more highly. The guys at reception are lovely, and the Vets & nurses really know their stuff. Our pets love them too ❤️ Prices are extremely competitive also, thanks for looking after our little ones!

Visits to the vet can sometimes be a difficult experience, but Vets of Geelong (Geelong West and Highton) make it that little bit easier. Very friendly staff and welcoming.
I really appreciate the follow up calls the next day - a nice bonus touch!
- David Keele
Have been to both Highton and Geelong West Veterinary Clinics and both have been outstanding with their friendliness, care and compassion towards both patient and clients. I was very satisfied with the care/treatment my animals received. I just received a follow up letter asking how my Dog is doing and some goodies/vouchers. How lovely
- Olivia Addison
Very happy with the service provided and would highly recommend the Geelong West vet to anyone who needs any form of pet care. Kind and caring staff who take pride in making you and for me my cat feel safe . The after care support is excellent aswell.

Our main vet Annie has looked after our boy Badger so well along with the rest of the team. They've really brought him so much happiness in his old age.
Love the ID tags as well, brilliant idea.
