Preserving Your Pets
While we understand a special pet may be irreplaceable, we also understand the joy and peace of mind that comes from knowing one day you may be able to have a genetic twin of your beloved pet. The possibility of recreating the genetics of your amazing pet is now available through our Genetic Preservation service.
ViaGen offers Genetic Preservation for pets, for a cost of $1600. Once you place an order, we will ship a biopsy kit to your veterinarian. The biopsy kit contains all the necessary tools and shipping material and your veterinarian will return the kit to us with small biopsy samples taken from your pet. The biopsy procedure is a simple process and can be done under local or general anesthesia.
We highly recommend that Genetic Preservation be done while your pet is living, but under certain circumstances Genetic Preservation can be successful for a deceased pet if you act quickly. If your pet dies and you wish to preserve cells for future cloning, please be sure to instruct your veterinarian to refrigerate, DO NOT FREEZE, the body. Contact ViaGen as soon as possible and refer to our deceased pet biopsy protocol for further instructions.
Although ViaGen has no current plans to provide commercial cat or dog cloning services, we are equipped to provide the highest-quality Genetic Preservation services for pets and we use the same Genetic Preservation process for your pets as for those animals we do clone. Once you have preserved your pet’s genes, they will remain available for decades. If another company offers cat or dog cloning services, we can transfer your pet’s cells to that company for cloning.
