From time to time, we update the Basepaws digital report of results for our Breed + Health Cat DNA Test. Today, we’d like to take a moment to share some details about two recent changes to our report—one for a genetic health marker linked to the common cat heart condition hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and one for a genetic trait marker associated with the Siamese colorpoint coat pattern.
We’re so excited to share that the latest results from the Basepaws Feline Health History Questionnaire are in! For the past two years, amazing pet parents like you in our customer and/or citizen science research community have filled out this questionnaire to help us learn about your furry family members’ physical appearance, health, eating habits, behaviors, and more.
As we celebrate our five-year anniversary, Basepaws is as committed as ever to our amazing community of pet parents. This is truly a celebration of you, since your unwavering loyalty and support has been integral to this journey. We’ve come a long way since our early days as a startup company, so we want to take this opportunity to share some updates about our feline health product pricing as we expand our operations, team, and product offerings.
Maine Coon cats are one of the largest breeds of domestic cats in the world, with some males reaching up to 20 pounds or more when fully grown! Some believe that these cats originated in the state of Maine and are known as "gentle giants" due to their temperament and size. In this article, we will take a closer look at just how big Maine coon cats get.
On June 7th, Basepaws announced the big meows, and today we are proud to officially join the Zoetis family. This announcement marks a new chapter in our mission to provide pet parents with actionable knowledge for making empowered, proactive healthcare decisions.
