The cost to clone 1 dog is $50,000 USD
For several years the cost to clone a dog was about 100K. Recent advances in technology has made it much affordable now.
The first steps you have to make is to prepare by preserving the cells of your dog while she/he is still alive. You'll need to order a Biopsy Kit. Contact us and we'll will ship a biopsy kit directly to your veterinarian complete with instructions for the doctor to follow. The Biopsy kit is a Styrofoam box with ice packs and vials to store your pets tissues or biopsy samples when shipping back to the cell preservation and storage company.
The Biopsy Process.
The vet will place your dog under anesthesia and perform a small surgery to extract quality tissue and cells from your dog. The Vet will than place your pets biopsy samples in the container and ship it back via next day air to us . Once we receive it, we will culture the cells from the sample tissue to ensure that the cells are viable. The cells are then frozen and stored in a liquid nitrogen storage container. The cost to store your dogs cells are about $100 to $300 per year.
Once you are ready to have your pet cloned, the dog cloning company will contact us and have some of your dogs cells shipped next day air to their cloning facility. We will will still keep some samples in their storage facility as backup incase something happens to the shipment. The scientists will then test the cells again to make sure they are viable and good for cloning. If the cells are not good then we will send them more samples of your dogs cells. The process takes about 6 months for the clones to be born. Once born the new clone will have to be at least 2 months old before he/she can board a plane to go home with you.
Will the dog clone act the same as the original dog?
We are the sum of our experiences. Our personality is unique to our individual selves. It is our past experiences that shape who and what we are today. The books we read, the movies we watch, the things we’ve done and the mistakes and decisions we make are part of who we are. The way our parents raised us and the environment we grew up in play a big role in what we eventually become. The same holds true for dogs. If the new clone grows up in the same environment as the original dog than the personality will be the same or closely similar.
