Genetic Insights.
Early Detection.
Precision Care.

The journey to proactive patient care begins with genetics. Each pet's unique biological blueprint provides valuable health insights, helping you deliver a lifetime of precision care and monitoring.

Pet Genetics with Purpose

 

Basepaws, a Zoetis company, a pioneer in the field of pet genetics, partners with veterinary care teams by providing genetic and microbiome tests for the early detection of disease risk in dogs and cats.

 

Genetics tells us more than breed.

Genetic testing allows you to look deeper into the specific health risks of an individual pet. Go beyond breed identification and dispositions to a new level of individualized insights.

 

DNA is directions, not destiny.

A pet's DNA is like the roadmap of their health. Risk factors don't have to determine disease. Early detection, interventions and lifestyle changes can influence a pet's healthspan in positive ways. Genetic guideposts can help you and your client manage their pet's unique health risks.
