VetGen's new ChromaGene™
DNA test for
Coat Color in Poodles
VetGen has introduced a new
DNA test for Coat Color in Poodles. DNA testing has identified the
genotype associated with the brown (b
allele) and cream, white, apricot
or red (e allele)
What does this mean to
breeders of Poodles?
VetGen has discovered that Poodles who
are brown have the
genotype and Poodles who are cream, white, apricot or red have the
The DNA Test for coat color in Poodles will allow breeders to test
dogs who are NOT brown, to identify whether the
b allele is
present, as well as to test those dogs who are NOT cream, white,
apricot or red, to identify whether the e allele is present.
The DNA test for
breeders the choice of producing dogs with brown coat color, as well
as the opportunity of breeding away from the cream, white, apricot
or red coat color.
The ChromaGene™ test will determine
which one of the genotypes listed below your
If your dog is
black the possible genotypes are:
BBEE, BBEe, BbEE, BbEe.
If your dog is brown, the possible genotypes are:
If your dog is cream, white, apricot or red with a black nose
Possible genotypes are: BBee, Bbee.
If your dog is cream, white, apricot or red with a Brown nose Your
dog is genotypes
The value of the ChromaGene™ Test is,
that it determines if a breeding pair is carrying e
or both and would therefore be capable of producing the
or cream, white, apricot or
red coat color.
