Notes

  • Cloned two Coton de Tulear puppies for Barbara Streisand

Viagen Pets is the US-based leader in pet cloning. The company clones dogs, cats and horses.

Offers several services:

  • Express tissue banking – $500
  • Genetic preservation – $1,600
  • Dog cloning – $50,000
  • Cat cloning – $35,000
  • Horse cloning – $85,000

Express tissue banking is the taking of a pet’s tissue sample for possible future cloning. There is no guarantee that the tissue sample will eventually be able to be used to clone a pet.  The next step, genetic preservation, must be successfully completed to allow for cloning to occur.  Even then, the pet owner has the option to not move forward with the cloning process.

Viagen claims that it cloned the first US-born puppy in 2018, a Jack Russell Terrier named Nubia.
