We build bonds around the care of a pet. We connect parents, pets, and vets in a collaborative process.
In the spirit of National Pet Wellness month this October, Basepaws announced its commitment to raising awareness about chronic kidney disease (CKD)—a major feline health issue from which one in 30 cats suffer. With our concurrent launch of the inaugural Basepaws “Feline Kidney Disease Awareness” month, we would like to take this opportunity to share details about our game-changing feline oral microbiome and genetics health research for the early detection of CKD.
Although we do not currently have a cure for chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats, there are many treatments available to alleviate symptoms associated with the disease. Dietary therapy and medications can promote longer and higher quality of life for cats who suffer from CKD, especially when the disease is caught early.
