Microbiome Testing & Genetic Sequencing

In addition to a detailed explanation of your pet’s microbiome test results, the report you receive also includes personalized recommendations—such as dietary adjustments, supplements, and lifestyle changes—to improve your pet’s health and relieve symptoms. If your pet has been diagnosed with a chronic digestive or skin issue, the test report will provide actionable information for you and your veterinarian.

Our Healthy Reference Set

AnimalBiome has built the world’s largest database of cat and dog microbiome samples. So far, we have collected and analyzed more than 10,000 fecal samples from domestic cats and dogs. Out of those, we’ve assembled a group of samples that meet our criteria for healthy pets. By studying those healthy samples, we were able to build a profile of the specific bacterial taxa (groups) we could expect to find in the gut microbiome of a healthy cat or dog. We identified a “healthy reference set” consisting of 22 taxa that make up the core microbiome of cats and 17 taxa that make up the core microbiome of dogs.

Our Gut Health Test kits for cats and dogs contain everything you need to collect a small sample of your pet’s stool and send it to our laboratory. When we receive your pet’s sample, we first extract the DNA from all the bacteria. A fecal sample about the size of a pea will contain roughly one billion bacterial cells. Using DNA sequencing and powerful analytic software, we identify all the types of bacteria living in your pet’s gut.

Then, we compare your cat’s or dog’s results to our large and growing database of healthy pets to determine how closely the types and amounts of bacteria in your pet’s gut match that healthy reference set. We can detect any bacterial imbalances, identify any key groups that are missing, and flag any “bad actors” that may be causing troublesome symptoms, like diarrhea or itchy skin.
