New Lab for CMO Testing
Most Westie owners have been submitting the genetic test swab for Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO) to Optigen. Optigen has been sold to the Mars Company which supplies the Wisdom Genetic and Health Panel. The Wisdom S is a genetic profile that will test for all known genetic mutations, even those which do not affect our breed. The average cost of this profile is $150 with an approximate two week turnaround time.
Vetgen Laboratories will now process the CMO test for $55/sample. Go to Vetgen.com for information. The test is prepaid online or by telephone, (800) 483-8436 (US & Canada). If you have multiple samples and call Vetegen’s number between 9 AM-4 PM EST, they will provide a small discount. They will supply the test kit and return mailer.
