In order to initiate a successful genetic preservation (GP) or cloning process, timing and proper procedures are critical if your pet has just passed away. Please call 1-888-876-6104 right away to speak to a ViaGen Pets Counselor for specific information and instructions.
Refrigerating and NOT FREEZING your dog or cat’s tissue sample immediately after death is the first critical step. Tissue biopsy samples should then be collected from your pet as soon as possible.
We recommend that your veterinarian perform the tissue biopsy. Our protocol for this biopsy procedure can be found here.
