Your pet’s genes can be preserved on a long-term basis through ViaGen Pet’s genetic preservation (GP) service. Our genetic preservation (GP) process is conducted in three steps.
- We send you a ViaGen Pets Biopsy Kit, which your veterinarian will use to collect a tissue sample from your cat or dog. Your veterinarian will then send that tissue sample to ViaGen Pets.
- We culture new cells in our lab from your pet’s tissue sample. This allows us to ensure that the cells are ultimately usable to clone your pet – if you choose to do so.
- We cryopreserve (freeze) these live cells for growing at a later time if desired.
