A new Paw Print Genetics (PPG) release form has been uploaded to the ASCA website and replaces the current form. This form gives permission for PPG to use DNA submitted for parentage testing in all current and future parentage test requests. This is for parentage testing only and does not allow non-owners to run genetic tests with DNA on file with PPG. Currently the owner of the sire/dam must give permission for each dam/sire’s offspring to be tested. By submitting this form it allows PPG to create a database for parentage testing without having to involve the owners of the parents each time there is a parentage test request.
NOTE: THIS FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED WITH THE PARENTAGE TEST TO ALLOW PPG TO TRANSMIT THE RESULTS TO ASCA. IF THIS FORM IS NOT SUBMITTED, ASCA WILL NOT ISSUE CP OR VP AND LITTERS WILL NOT BE REGISTRABLE WITH ASCA.
MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE THE ASCA REGISTRATION NUMBER ON THE RELEASE FORM.
If you do not own any of the parents that will be used in the parentage verification, you need to call or email PPG before placing the order through their website. If both parents’ DNA are on file with PPG and PPG has the appropriate release form, you will only need to order 1 parentage test. However, the website will not allow you to order 1 test ($30.00) so you will need to call or email PPG.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
