I have been looking for a deal on this dog DNA test for months but didn't see it dip anywhere until today. Seems to be really rare to see it dip at all. According to CCC, this is the lowest price it's ever been so if you're in the market, this is a great time to get this!
This is the best version of the Mars Wisdom Panel test (version 3.0) that you can find third party. Mars only sells version 4.0 directly from their website (WP.com). Both 3.0 and 4.0 use the exact same test and test for pretty much the exact same number of markers, no difference there. The only difference is that 4.0 gives you "Additional Trait Analysis" which basically means it tests for EIC (Exercise-induced collapse), which is an inherited genetic disorder that affects a dog's nerves and muscle and is characterized by notable exercise intolerance in otherwise normal dogs. Apart from this one extra test, 3.0 and 4.0 are identical (both test 1800+ markers, both test for wolf/coyote markers, both test for multi-drug sensitivity, etc.) so if you want to save a lot of money and aren't too concerned with EIC, you should consider getting the 3.0 with the current deal on Amazon.
