All cats have the same wildcat ancestry, yet some kitties have more similarities. Find out whose DNA your kitty has inherited more.
A chromosome map visualizes where each section of your cat’s genetic code relates to known cat breeds.
This can help you identify if your cat is genetically predisposed to a certain condition, thereby allowing you to warn your cat’s veterinarian and monitor for potential symptoms as early as possible. We will continually be adding more markers and diseases to our Health Marker Report in parallel to our ongoing research programs.
