Innovative epigenetic age test paves way for improved dog longevity.
TUSTIN, Calif., Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- myDogDNAge® is a groundbreaking new epigenetic age test that sheds light on your dog's rate of aging and delivers key data points on their health. With a simple cheek swab, unlock insights like their:
myDogDNAge® offers insights that can revoutionize the pet health industry. Dr. Gary Richter, America's Favorite Veterinarian and author of Longevity for Dogs observed, "Utilizing accurate epigenetic data is going to be a key piece in our quest for canine longevity. Understanding how diet, supplementation, and interventional therapeutics affect a patient's epigenetic age will allow practitioners to customize therapeutics and learn how to extend the healthspan and lifespan of patients."
For veterinarians and companies developing or trialing new anti-aging therapies for dogs, myDogDNAge® represents a way to measure the impact of these interventions accurately and transparently. Dog owners can likewise use the test every 6 to 12 months to optimize lifestyle changes for their dog.
Results from myDogDNAge® testing could also "speak up" for your dog and catch health problems early, a significant help for pet parents. Results that significantly deviate from your dog's calendar age can signal an immediate need for a more thorough vet assessment.
"We created myDogDNAge® to empower pet owners with trustworthy data to help them enhance their dog's health more proactively," explained Dr. Xiaojing Yang, myDNAge® Lead Scientist.
myDogDNAge® is our love of dogs enhanced with the precise power of science. It uses the same technology behind myDNAge®, the leading biological age test for humans, now tailored to the specificity of the canine genome. Clinical studies conducted with myDogDNAge® are set to be published in peer-reviewed journals later this year.
"Aging is just one parameter of health," noted Dr. Yang, "We envision this test as the cornerstone of a wider series of tests, including the diagnosis of obesity and cancer."
myDogDNAge® retails for $250 per test and can be purchased exclusively at www.mydnage.com
Launched in 2017, myDNAge® is the most accurate and precise direct-to-consumer biological age test. Our scientists collaborate closely with leading longevity researchers worldwide and explore the connection between epigenetics and health from metabolism to oncology.
