Ancestry DNA Testing for You & Your Dog

Make People Better is an established wellness company founded by Dr. Kerri Miller. Dr. Miller is a graduate of Johns Hopkins and the recipient of the prestigious Missourian Award for 2017. Through our Get Well Make Well program, we will donate $10 to the Humane Society for every test sold to support their work in animal rescue during disasters.

What gives value to ancestry testing is the level of information you receive. Your DNA is handled by expert Genetic Scientists, not a robot. Once your DNA is analyzed our experts individually prepare your report which includes extensive information about YOUR ancestors. You will not have to do your own research. Your information is Private and we do not share data.

Discover who your ancestors were, how they lived and moved throughout the globe, and connect with your other descendants from around the world. Whether you are just starting to investigate your heritage, or are a seasoned genealogist, these DNA findings will accelerate your research! All it takes is a cheek swab.

Discover the hidden secrets in your dog’s DNA with the world’s leading canine DNA test. Wisdom Panel 3.0 Canine DNA Test provides you with unprecedented accuracy to detect the breeds in your dog’s ancestry as well as important health screens for drug sensitivity (MDR1) and Exercise-induced Collapse.

YOUR DNA TEST KIT

Maternal Ancestry DNA Test:

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is unique in that it is only passed on from your mother’s side. So, whether you are male or female, you still receive mitochondrial DNA from an unbroken maternal line. This pattern of inheritance provides a “direct line” that can be traced back tens of thousands of years.
• Determine your Mitochondrial Haplogroup
• Learn how your maternal ancestors expanded out of Africa
• Discover current living relatives
• Confirm genealogical links through maternal line
• Compare the frequency of your heritage across worldwide populations

Paternal Ancestry DNA Test:

Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) is unique because it is only passed on from the paternal side, from father to son. Due to this pattern of inheritance, only males are able to participate in this test. However, if you are a woman and are curious as to your paternal heritage, all you need to do is have a male (father, brother, grandfather) from your direct bloodline submit a DNA sample.

What kind of Information will you receive?

• Determine your Y-Haplogroup
• Learn how your paternal ancestors expanded out of Africa
• Discover current living relatives
• Confirm genealogical links through paternal line
• Compare the frequency of your heritage across worldwide populations

YOUR DOG’S DNA TEST KIT

• Covers 250+ breeds and varieties including all those recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as well as wolf and coyote. Can be run for mixed-breed, designer, or purebred dogs.
• Provides ancestry information back to the great-grandparent level, MDR1 Genetic Mutation screening results, breed insights, and a predicted weight profile.
• Can be done at home and consists of two swabs that the owner rubs between the gum and the cheek for 15 seconds to collect skin cells for DNA extraction.
• Results take approximately 2-3 weeks from the time the test reaches the lab.

Benefits of DNA Testing include:

• MDR1 mutation testing for drug sensitivity.
• The ability to develop a training program that works with their natural instincts (breeds) and a better understanding their behavior characteristics.
• Developing a nutrition plan for breed-specific needs and/or achieving/maintaining healthy weight.
• Assists in determining what the adult size of the dog might be.
• Understanding the breeds within the dog, in order to look out for any breed-specific health concerns or common issues.

Your dog’s DNA Test Kit include:

• Instructions
