DNA Testing

At VO Vets, we offer 

Dog & Cat DNA Testing in Fort Worth, TX

VO Vets is able to provide DNA testing for dogs and cats to get additional, important information about our patients and provide proactive care. Every dog and cat is unique, and their genetics can tell us a lot about their health and what conditions they might be predisposed to throughout their life.

We use Basepaws for our cat and dog DNA testing in Fort Worth. Basepaws gives us access to tools that can help us keep your pet several steps ahead of genetic disease and deliver treatment that is more closely tailored to their specific needs.

What It Looks For

With Basepaws, we can run tests that screen for a variety of DNA health markers in dogs and cats that are associated with certain diseases, such as:


  • Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)
  • Bladder stones
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Inherited/idiopathic epilepsy


  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth resorption
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
  • Metabolic disorders

Each test comes with a detailed, easy-to-read report that measures your pet’s disease risks and gives an overview of potential diagnostic and treatment recommendations.

The Primary Benefits of Dog & Cat DNA Testing

We recommend DNA testing for several reasons:

  • Allows for more precise and tailored pet care
  • Helps pet owners make better informed decisions for their pets
  • Facilitates early detection of disease and proactive measures to prevent disease
  • Can result in happier, healthier pets with longer lives
