In an interview with dvm360®, Dr Dockweiler discussed new and innovative updates in genetic testing
Following the 2023 Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX), Jenna Dockweiler, MS, DVM, DACT, CCRT, CVAT, told dvm360® about the lastest technology and products for genetic testing. Plus, she explained how to communicate to clients how the tests work.
The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Jenna Dockweiler, MS, DVM, DACT, CCRT, CVAT: We have just started using what's called a methylation array, or a methylation chip. So this is a different type of technology than what we use when we are typically genetically screening patients. This type of technology we currently use it for our age test, which estimates calendar age. But it does have the potential to find new marks for disease and help us better understand DNA regulation.
