LABOKLIN has been your trustworthy partner for genetic tests for more than 15 years. Since then, we have had stable and moderate prices and we will continue to guarantee this.
Today we would like to inform you about an international standardisation of our price system for the genetic department. This takes place on the 01.03.2015. These changes will be implemented to achieve international unification and more transparent and simpler prices for you. Due to this process the prices may increase slightly but not more than 5%. Our breeding club discounts will rise from 15 to 20%. All samples arriving in our lab by the 28.02.2015 will be treated with the old price rules.
The exact information about the prices will be added to our webpage in the near future. Additionally, a webshop for genetic tests, coming soon to our new website, will allow our customers to order the tests online.
Please feel free to contact us directly for any further information.

The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), a global veterinary association, has called for the testing and quarantine of dogs exposed to the Ebola virus in countries not endemic for the disease, not automatic euthanasia. It has spoken out following the euthanasia on 8 October 2014 of a pet dog belonging to an infected woman in Spain on the government's orders and against her wishes.
The infection of a nurse in Spain with Ebola after caring for an infected priest has caused international concern and people who have come into contact with her are in quarantine. The Madrid regional government also obtained a court order to euthanise her dog, claiming that 'available scientific information' could not rule out 'a risk of contagion.' Quarantine was not considered as an alternative and the dog has now been destroyed.
The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) is an association made up of 92 veterinary organizations from all over the world, representing 145,000 individual veterinarians globally. Full scientific evidence to support its views is available at www.wsava.org.
