Hey, it’s me, Cosmo’s resident sex editor who also territorially deemed herself de facto dog editor because, duh, look at this chicken nugget:

Anyway, I spend a lot more money on my pup than I should and thus have lots of very nose-turny opinions on dog prods, including the fact that the Embark DNA kit is well worth the $200 price tag. But today for Prime day, for October 13th-October 14th, you can get the kit for $135.
Two summers ago, I wrote about the Embark kit and why it’s so much better than other dog DNA kits in that it allowed me to slide into a certain Insta-famous dog’s account like, “OMG, we’re cousins, hi”—thanks to a family-tree feature not supported by cheaper tests. There were other cool reasons, too, but you’re here for a good time, not a long time, so I’m keeping this short.
The Embark is much more extensive in its health testing: Comparable DNA kits screen for 140 disease-causing genetic mutations, but Embark covers 165. Since last summer, I’ve used a cheaper dog test, and it gave me very little information that I couldn’t figure out by just looking at her.
The Embark kit usually runs for around $200, and I spend approx. 30 percent of my time with other dog owners proselytizing its bennies. It’s well worth $135, trust me. What are you waiting for?
