01-02-2017

Recently VHLGenetics became official partner of the International Partnership for Dogs (IPFD). Within this partnership VHLGenetics will actively participate in an important initiative of IPFD “Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs” to support the appropriate selection and use of DNA testing in dog health and breeding decisions.

The increasing of new canine DNA tests and testing laboratories has made choosing quality DNA testing providers and the right DNA tests for health and breeding decisions challenging for many owners, breeders and veterinarians.  The IPFD "Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs" initiative will provide practical support to address these challenges.  For more information about the initiativeplease refer to the  IPFD Press release.

The International Partnership for Dogs (IPFD) is a non-profit organization, registered in Sweden, and initiated in 2014 by a diverse group of stakeholders in the international dog world.  The IPFD mission is to facilitate collaboration and sharing of resources to enhance the health, well-being and welfare of pedigreed dogs and all dogs worldwide.  Visit the IPFD online at http://www.dogwellnet.com/ for more information.
