Your cat’s health is shaped by 3 main factors: Nutrition, Environment,and Genetics. By understanding all three, you can provide your cat with the ultimate in 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.
Each Basepaws CatKit Includes:
- DNA collection material
- Instructions for DNA collection
- Return shipping (within USA)
- Continuous report, community and discovery updates
The cost of a Basepaws CatKit is only $99 (includes collection materials, reports, and report updates). Shipping is free within the US and International shipping is a flat rate of just $10. The initial report will be sent to you in less than 2 months from receipt of your sample.
The test is easily done in three quick steps – so easy, your cat can do it. >^..^<
