Basepaws, a pet genetics company. Your cat’s DNA can tell you wonders. Uncover what makes your cat unique, and better understand health and diet needs with a simple DNA test. Your cat's health is shaped by 3 main factors: Nutrition, Environment, and Genetics. By understanding all three, you can provide your pet with the ultimate cat care. Basepaws is the first cat care company built around Genetics. Almost every cell in your cat’s body contains your cat’s unique genetic code. This DNA is inherited from your cat’s parents, which they inherited from kitty grandparents, and so on. Basepaws gets DNA from your cat’s hair and cheek cells. Most of the hair DNA comes from the living part of the fur — the follicle that is closest to the skin. Because sometimes we can’t get enough fluff! We also get DNA from other cells, like cheek cells that rub off onto a cotton swab. What do you do with DNA? When your cat’s fur and cheek swab arrives at our Los Angeles facility, we take the DNA out of it with a chemical extraction process. Your cat’s DNA contains more than 20,000 genes, which are spelled out in a unique genetic code that is around 2,700,000,000 letters (nucleotide bases) long. Basepaws takes this DNA and uses sequencing machines to read and record these letters.One simple cat DNA test, a lifetime of discovery. Find out what your cat's DNA can tell you about their ancestry and ultimately their health and habits.
