Medication information

What is EpiPaws Pet Age Test?

EpiPaws is an easy, at-home mouth swab kit for cats and dogs that’s used to accurately estimate their age. Once the lab analyzes the DNA on the swab you send back with the prepaid label, you’ll get your pet’s approximate birthday, plus insights about their life stage to provide the best care for their needs.

The EpiPaws Pet Age Test uses the power of epigenetics-molecules that attach to the DNA to accurately estimate the chronological/calendar age of pets. This test is ideal for adopted pets over 1 year old with no known birthday.

What are the benefits of the EpiPaws Pet Age test?

A pet’s needs and health concerns change with age. The EpiPaws Pet Age Test provides you with a birthday to celebrate for your pet as well as research-backed information specific to your pet's life stage on topics including:​

  • Nutrition
  • Activity & exercise
  • Behavior
  • Proactive health tips
  • Wellness insights

In addition, if a problem pops up, knowing your pet's age can help narrow down what this new symptom or behavior means. 

How is the EpiPaws Pet Age Test done?

Here’s how the EpiPaws Pet Age Test works:

  1. Swab your pet’s mouth with the included swab following the instructions in the kit. This collects their DNA.
  2. Mail the swab to EpiPaws with the prepaid shipping label within 14 days.
  3. Their lab will analyze the DNA on the swab and send you your pet’s estimated birthday along with age-based insights to help you be more proactive with their care. Results typically take 6–8 weeks.
