If your cat’s gut microbiome is out of balance or missing beneficial bacteria, important digestive and immune functions may not work properly, causing symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, and constipation.
The Gut Health Test report gives you the tools to understand your cat’s everyday digestive health. Using DNA sequencing, we analyze the bacteria in the sample and compare it to our healthy cat reference set to determine if an imbalance is present.
The test kit includes everything you need to collect a stool sample from your cat, and send it back to us for assessment. You will receive a detailed report to understand and help restore your cat’s health.
