Our Story

How it all began

Founded in 2017, Basepaws is a petcare genetics company that offers affordable, easy-to-use screening tools for the early recognition of disease risks in pets.

We created the world’s first at-home comprehensive cat DNA test and oral health test for cats, and we continue to grow the largest feline genomic and oral microbiome database. This work has become the solid foundation upon which we are building our canine research and development program to help even more pet parents and their beloved pet families.

In 2022, Basepaws became a proud member of Zoetis — the world's leading animal health company. Together with Zoetis, we're creating a future of health and wellness for our pets that will be brighter than ever.
