Research Areas

Early detection to improve pet health outcomes

Basepaws research aims to understand the genetic and oral microbiome factors associated with a pet’s increased risk for disease. Our studies directly inform the development of at-home screening tools that detect signs of disease sooner and help pets get the individualized care they need. We focus on the following seven areas: Oral Health, Renal and Urinary Diseases, Gastrointestinal Diseases, Endocrine Diseases, Dermatological Diseases, Cancer, Longevity.
