Submitting swabs or blood through your veterinary surgeon for cat genetic testing

1. Some ICC negative registers and some GCCF active registers require mouth swabs to be taken by a vet who confirms the cat's identity by its microchip number. To submit samples this way please download and complete the Vet Checked Submission Form. Then take the form and your cat to your vet so that they can confirm your cat's identity and sign the form when they take the sample. Your vet must then send the sample and submission form to us at the address below.

2. Please indicate on the form whether you will pay the Lab directly or whether we should invoice your veterinary practice. Cheques should be made payable to Langford Veterinary Services Ltd. Test prices can be found here.

3. Send the submission form with your samples using our freepost label to:
