Basepaws an at-home, feline-specific genetic test allows you to learn about breed and ancestry markers that are present in your cats DNA explaining the physical traits are in your cat’s genes. So if you’ve ever wondered where your cat gets the extra fluffiness in his or her tail, now you can find out! Using what we currently know, we can tell you how closely related your cat is to select cat breeds and wildcats. Launching in 2019 Basepaws will also be able to let any possible health and wellness risks that may be present in your cat’s DNA.

Pets are part of the family and now more than ever are treated as such. According to the 2017-2018 American Pet Products Association (APPA) National Pet Owners Survey, almost three-quarters of dog and cat owners purchase gifts for their pets, and almost half of dog owners and 38 percent of cat owners buy holiday gifts for them.

As a pet owner, you want to know as much information as possible about any potential health risks for your beloved cat. With knowledge from your cat’s genetics, you can make more informed decisions about their health-care needs earlier—possibly mitigating or even preventing illness down the road.

To send Basepaws the sample, you collect hair from your feline or use a mouth swab for cats without hair. After mailing the sample in you can expect results in 2 to 4 months. Once you are part of the Basepaws family, your cat will receive a lifetime of benefits. This includes report updates, personalized recommendations, membership in the Basepaws community, access to the latest research on cat science, tools to connect owners of similar cats, and discounts on future products that will be specifically formulated for your cat’s genetic needs.
