PetDNA Labs, a business of Access Genetics, offers the powerful K9 Smiles™ Early Warning Dental Test. It identifies harmful bacteria known to cause tooth problems and pain, and which could put your dog at risk for life-threatening illness. We use advanced DNA technology for this test with a methodology similar to what our OralDNA labs business has offered to dentists for over 8 years. An estimated 60 million dogs have gum disease by age 3. You can now identify the bacteria that commonly cause this problem at a very early stage. K9 Smiles is a simple oral swab test that is recommended yearly to help keep your dog happy and healthy. The test is covered by most pet insurance plans when part of your vet’s plan of care.
K9 Smiles is an early warning dental test for dogs. We test for 3 pathogenic forms of oral bacteria known to cause periodontal disease. These bacteria are also associated with systemic illnesses such as heart, kidney and liver disease. We have been helping thousands of medical and dental professionals use salivary diagnostics on humans for over 8 years – This is now available for your pet!
