NO SATURDAY DELIVERY
Please keep blood samples cool and protect them from breakage. What works best is to place the sample in a small zip closure bag, wrap it in bubble wrap and ship it in a small box with one frozen gel pack. Include your order confirmation in the package in a separate plastic bag.
Before shipping, ensure that the name on the blood tube is the same as the name on the paperwork. Samples submitted with unclear labeling cannot be tested.
You may use your courier of choice and select one or two day shipping.
Cheek Swab samples:
After the DNA swabs have dried, please place them back in their plastic pouches. Label each pouch with the dog’s name, owner’s name and breed. DNA swabs can then be mailed via US Mail (with correct postage) or your preferred carrier. Business size #10 or padded envelopes work nicely, they do not need to be kept cool or sent overnight.
Before shipping, ensure that the name on the DNA swabs is the same as the name on the paperwork. Samples submitted with unclear labeling cannot be tested.
International Shipping (including Canada)
Please be aware that blood samples do occasionally get delayed in Customs. It is your responsibility to satisfy all Customs requirements. It may be helpful to include the phrase “Canine DNA Sample” on the outside of the box.
DNA Swabs can be sent via regular postal service. Please include a complete return address on the outside of the envelope.
