We build bonds around the care of a pet. We connect parents, pets, and vets in a collaborative process.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common feline heart condition. The Basepaws Breed + Health Cat DNA test now screens for two additional genetic health markers associated with HCM to let pet parents know if their cat is at a higher risk for the disease.
As Basepaws sees it, a deeper understanding of the genetic factors that contribute to feline longevity can support cats to live longer, but more importantly, do so in ways that help them enjoy their golden years with fewer instances of pain and illness. To make this a reality for all cats, Basepaws initiated a longevity research partnership with Ernie Ward, DVM, CVFT, founder of Project 25, which aims to extend feline life expectancy by 25 percent by the year 2025.
