January 18, 2022

Basepaws has been at the forefront of many research efforts, uncovering valuable data that will help us keep our cats healthy and living longer lives. They are a part of a community of citizen scientists and veterinary partners looking for answers. First of all, Basepaws has joined forces with Ernie Ward, DVM, CVFT, founder of Project 25, which aims to extend feline life expectancy by 25 percent by the year 2025. And this is just part of their objectives.

Health, quality of life, decreasing disease and pain are all part of this equation. Diagnostic tests that Basepaws provides are helping people all over the world better understand and actually better the lives of their cats. Did you know that cats have 90.2 percent of their DNA in common with humans? Unlike dogs that share only 84 percent of their DNA. This makes this research effort potentially benefitial to humans as well.

So, what’s it all about? Basepaws aims to identify potential novel therapeutic targets for age-related chronic feline diseases, such as chronic kidney disease and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). And you can become a part of this research as well! They are actively recruiting cats aged 17 years or older to participate in this longevity research study.

If you don’t qualify for this study, you can still buy Basepaws At-Home Cat Health Tests. The two main ones are Basepaws Breed + Health Cat DNA Test and Dental Cat Health Test. Combined, they will give you a comprehensive picture of your cat’s health, traits and everything else. And if you want to go all out, you can also buy the revolutionary Whole Genome Sequencing test.
