A little about the company.
Our mission is to safeguard the health and wellbeing of your pet with fully personalised, breed-specific care. Orivet was founded on the premise that each and every pet is unique, with its own set of specific traits, behaviours, genetic health needs and inherent risks. We work with pet owners, breeders and vets to provide completely personalised products and services that treat and care for pets as the unique individuals they are, taking into account each pet’s genetic makeup, age, sex and lifestyle. Through this we aim to encourage the development of a deep, genuine and lasting bond between pets and their owners.
As we know, smart breeders are now using DNA testing to avoid diseases such as feline PKD, as well as to speed up and enhance their breeding programs.
There are many advances in DNA testing that your members may be interested in, and they all can be found at http://www.animalsdna.com
Because we know it is costly to care for the animals we love, the Animal DNA Laboratory would like to help by offering an exclusive 10% discount on all of our tests to members of associations, clubs or societies that register with us.
The Cornell Feline Health Centre is a veterinary medical specialty centre devoted to improving the health and well-being of cats everywhere.
The Winn Feline Foundation supports studies about cat health.
“The research laboratory of Professor Leslie Lyons at UC Davis is located in the Center for Companion Animal Health (CCAH). Research focuses on the genetics of the domestic cat and the development of genetic tools and resources that assist gene mapping in the cat and other companion animals. Feline research is focused on the discovery of mutations that cause inherited diseases and phenotypic traits and in the population dynamics of breed development and domestic cat evolution.”
The feline research of the Lyons’ laboratory is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – National Center for Research resources (NCRR) R24 RR0016094. The laboratory actively seeks competitive and non-competitive funding from a variety of agencies, groups and donors to support genetic studies in feline health and non-health related areas. The Winn Feline Foundation, Royal Canin , WALTHAM and private donors have been strong and consistent supporters for various cat research projects. The UC Davis Center for Companion Animal Health provides internal competitive funding and matching funding for external awards. The Veterinary Genetics Laboratory will assist with research projects and funding that will lead to genetic tests as a commercial service for the cats of owners and breeders. Strong interactions with cat breeders and owners are highly desired and encouraged to help support studies by providing DNA samples from cats, pedigree information and background knowledge of interesting traits and health issues. Important relationships are fostered with all cat registries and associations, such as the CFA, TICA, the GCCF, FiFe, and other organizations worldwide.To provide target funding support and donations for feline genetics, please contact Dr. Lyons, the Center for Companion Animal Health (CCAH) or the School of Veterinary Medicine Development Office.
