What is HealthyTail?

HealthyTail is a project devoted to health and longevity of cats and dogs - most popular domesticated pets. By using next-generation sequencing technology and by processing a very large amount of genomic data it is possible to identify disease-specific genomic variation patterns and provide a personalized treatment and recommendations for a pet.

Business model

TAILS project brings in a unique opportunity to invest in longevity for everyone and your pet. Each stage of the project has added value, potential patents for the new drug design, and potential new our drugs based on plasmid for pet or human.

Our financial model expects the following revenue and costs:

Spendings

48% Data
15% Drug Design & registration
7% Reagents & materials
7% Taxes
7% Logistics, Assets, IT
7% Personell
4% Accountant + Lawyer
3% Marketing
2% Patents registration

Earnings after 3 years

48% Diagnostics, mating, certification
35% Drugs
6% Patents
6% Data
5% Healthy animals
In 2 years the project will be economically efficient.

Earnings in 5 years

In 5 years the data and drugs will become the main driver of the economy - we will see that competitors, especially big pharma will be interested in the data network and will pay a lot for data to compete with HealthyTail - as we would like to benefit the community the target is not to own the market rather the goal is to build a new pet data economy.

52% Data
26% Drugs

Old Cat

A portrait of
a long-lived cat

The average life expectancy of a domestic cat is 14 years. But like among humans among cats there are amazing long-livers. The oldest cat in the world, named Cream Puff, whose age was officially recorded by the Guinness Book of Records lived for 38 years.

blockchain, part 2

Previously we found out that creating a sufficient database to search for genetic markers of diseases in cats and dogs is a difficult matter. It requires joint efforts of scientists, owners, breeders, veterinarians.
