What kind of cat do you have?
We compare each sample against the largest cat DNA database in the world to better understand your cat's breed composition.
Be proactive about your cat's health
Your cats won't tell you when they're sick. We test for genetic markers, reporting on mutation carrier status and predisposition to different diseases.
Our home-based saliva collection kit is all you need to send your cat's DNA to our lab.
All from home. No blood. Completely non-invasive – just a small saliva sample, for both Health and Breed tests. Free shipping both ways within the continental U.S.!

Collect your cat's DNA sample by gently swabbing the inside of their cheek for 5 seconds.
