Shar-Pei Autoinflammatory Disease (SPAID) Testing

The SPAID test identifies Shar-Pei most likely to be affected by SPAID during their lifetime. The assay provides an estimate of an individual’s increased risk to develop SPAID symptoms. The assay may be used to determine the genotype of a dog of breeding age to inform decisions about potential breeding partners aiming to decrease the number of offspring at increased risk of experiencing SPAID symptoms.

The test is appropriate for Shar-Pei or Shar-Pei crosses only.

Required submission and animal history form (see links below) and payment have to be submitted with the sample. Payments can be made by check or credit card. Samples submitted without payment or complete information will not be tested.

Turn-around time will vary depending on the number of samples received. Please see the links below for additional information, sample submission instructions and forms:
