Coat Color Testing - A Locus - Recessive Black

In addition to the Fawn/Sable coat color variations located on the Agouti gene, several breeds may carry a recessive gene responsible for a solid black coat color(a).

To reliably identify carriers of recessive black this test must be ordered along with A Locus - Fawn/Sable.
