This web page contains a list of cat breeds and the genetic or hereditary diseases which have been reported in that breed. A brief description of the diseases and references to published papers can be found on the genetic and hereditary conditions of cats web page. Please note that these pages are intended for veterinary surgeons and that technical terminology is used throughout, with no translation for the lay person.

A similar database is available for genetic conditions of dogs from the University of Sydney.
