Breed Predispositions in Your Dog

Every dog breed is predisposed to several health issues as a result of a limited genetic pool required for breeding.

Environment & Epigenome 101

Not every predisposition manifests itself. However, diet and environment dictate the expression of genes, which may give rise to certain health issues.

Preventative Micronutrition

Providing your dog with targeted micronutrition based on the documented breed predispositions has been shown to reduce the risk of certain health issues and improve condition of existing ones.

Breed-Specific: New Era of Pet Healthcare

With recent advancements in gene sequencing by the NHGRI and ongoing research into dog health, pet healthcare is becoming more precise and tailored, addressing the unique needs of individual dogs.

NHGRI Dog Genome Project

The Dog Genome Project at the National Human Genome Research Institute has successfully mapped and studied the dog genome, leading to significant breakthroughs in understanding canine genetics and health. This comprehensive research has identified the genetic basis behind many traits and diseases in dogs. As a result, the project has provided valuable insights that contribute to the advancement of canine health care, enabling the development of more effective treatments and preventive strategies for various dog health issues. This achievement marks a major milestone in veterinary science, enhancing the well-being of dogs globally.

Breed Predisposition Studies

Breed predisposition studies serve as a vital tool in veterinary healthcare, offering insights that significantly enhance the well-being of different dog breeds. These studies enable pet parents to tailor their care and prevention strategies to the specific needs of each breed, ensuring more effective and personalized treatment plans. The implementation of preventive health measures based on these findings can lead to substantial improvements in dogs' quality of life. For breeders, this information is invaluable, as it guides them in making more informed breeding choices, aiming to reduce the incidence of inherited health issues in future generations. Ultimately, these studies are essential for extending the healthy lifespans of our canine companions, ensuring that they lead fuller, healthier lives. Aralis Animals leverages over 300 scientific studies into breed predispositions to deliver to you the best and most tailored health solution to your pet.

Functional Targeted Micronutrition

Targeted functional micronutrition in dogs is a key preventive measure for overall health and wellness. This approach involves incorporating specific micronutrients into a dog's diet, such as antioxidants, amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are carefully selected to support various aspects of a dog's health, including boosting the immune system, supporting skin and coat health, maintaining joint health, and enhancing cognitive functions. By catering to the unique nutritional needs of individual dogs, especially considering their breed, age, and specific health conditions, this targeted approach ensures that they receive the precise nutrients required for their optimal health. This not only helps in maintaining general well-being but also plays a significant role in preventing the onset of various health issues, contributing to a better quality of life and longevity for dogs.
