We are delighted to work together to create educational resources and support veterinary professionals as they strive to increase the standard of care provided to cats,” statesHeather O'Steen, CAE, AAFP's CEO

Basepaws is committed to improving the health and well-being of cats everywhere. Genetic testing can help deliver personalized, proactive pet care by enabling veterinarians and pet parents to better monitor for subtle signs of illness based on a pet's genetic risk profile."
Feline health has also been the focus of Basepaws since its founding in 2016 and the introduction of the first-of-its-kind feline breed and health DNA test. Today, Basepaws continues its mission to support feline health and veterinary care teams with the introduction of an exclusive veterinary line of genomic tests, including the Feline Baseline Breed & Health and Oral Microbiome-Dental Disease tests.
