there ain't no free rides...

the good news:

* the test is about 95% reliable, which is far better than with
earlier dna tests.

the bad news:

* the cost to ship the samples overnight and on ice can run $50-75,
which makes it pretty steep for most rescues/shelters, unless they are
doing a bunch of tests at once and sending them together.


for owners of a beloved cat just diagnosed, tho, it's a far better
alternative than unnecessary euthanasia.
