It's Not Magic, It's Science

The gut microbiome refers to the thousands of bacteria, viruses, and other microbes that live in [Pet name]’s digestive tract. AnimalBiome’s scientists have 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 samples, we have identified the optimal microbiome make-up for healthy pets and created science-backed products to Assess, Restore, and Maintain pet health.

Marby's Path to Healthy and Happy

What's Next for Marby?

The gut microbiome refers to the thousands of bacteria, viruses, and other microbes that live in Marby’s digestive tract. Each type of bacteria plays a unique and specific role in the gut microbial community. When this community is out of balance or missing “good” bacteria, important digestive and immune functions may not function properly. This imbalance can cause symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, and even skin issues.

First, assess the microbiome to identify the problem.

A small stool sample can reveal a lot about your pet’s health. Using DNA sequencing, we analyze the bacteria and compare it to our healthy dog reference set to determine if an imbalance is present. Then we provide recommendations to fix it. Each type of bacteria plays a unique and specific role in the gut microbial community. When this community is out of balance or missing “good” bacteria, important digestive and immune functions may not function properly. This imbalance can cause symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, and even skin issues.

We recommend starting with a Gut Health Test to understand how [Pet name]’s microbiome is out of balance and which groups are problematic. Collecting a stool sample before you begin the Gut Restore Supplement will help us get to the root cause(s) of [Pet names]’s digestive issues. Sometimes digestive issues can be solved with simple diet changes. The test results will provide dietary recommendations to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in [Pet name]’s gut.

Next, restore the microbiome.

To help [Pet name] right away, start a 30 day course of Gut Restore Supplements immediately after you have collected [his/her] sample for microbiome testing. Our supplement introduces an entire community of beneficial [cat/[dog]-specific bacteria to bring balance to the gut and relieve symptoms. Gut Restore is a fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) in an oral capsule. FMT is shown to improve symptoms in [cats/dogs] with chronic digestive problems.

For moderate symptoms, give one capsule a day for 30 days. For severe symptoms, give two capsules.

Here’s What Pet Parents Have To Say

“Emmy had chronic diarrhea, vomiting, and she was rapidly losing weight. We tried diet changes and medications, but we couldn’t get her to stabilize until AnimalBiome's products. After microbiome testing and the supplements, there was a turning point. Emmy had firm poops! Then she was gaining weight.” -Sandy S.

“AnimalBiome’s fecal transplant capsules and microbiome test have been essential in helping my autoimmune pup with digestive issues to improve her health. This is a wonderful company, and I am so thankful for them.” -Lauren M.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if a digestive imbalance is left untreated?

Left untreated, an unhealthy gut microbiome can result in poor health outcomes. Chronic diarrhea, itchy skin and bad breath are the most obvious signs of an imbalanced microbiome. But researchers have connected numerous health conditions with the composition of imbalanced gut microbiomes, including: inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) [DOG LINK/CAT LINK], diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. We believe that if you restore the microbiome to a diverse and balanced state, that you can help your pet live a longer, healthier life.

Can you change the gut microbiome?

Absolutely! There are several ways to change an imbalanced gut microbiome to a healthier state. Diet adjustments or supplementation have been shown to improve troublesome symptoms related to gut microbiome-associated diseases.

What causes a bacterial imbalance in dogs?

There are many reasons why your pet’s microbiome may be out of balance, but the most common reasons are:

Antibiotics
The bacterial communities in your pet’s gut are ever-changing, especially in response to antibiotics and other medications. There are times when antibiotics are necessary to fight off harmful bacteria. The thing is, when they wipe out the bad bacteria, they also wipe out the good bacteria. For some pets the good bacteria might not recover; causing an ongoing imbalance.

Diet
Your CAT/DOG’s diet has a profound impact on their gut microbial community because it directly feeds the bacteria in their gut. Your pet’s gut microbiome can become imbalanced if your pet is not getting the right ratio of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fat) or has inflammation caused by a food sensitivity or allergy, for example.

Parasites and/or Infections
Left untreated, parasites (ex. worms or Giardia) and pathogenic bacteria (ex. Escherichia or Campylobacter) can result in inflammation that has far reaching consequences for the health of the gut microbiome. Yearly check ups with your veterinarian can help you keep the negative effects of any gut infections at bay.

What is a fecal microbiota transplant?

A fecal microbiota transplant (FMT), is the transfer of fecal material from a healthy donor to a sick recipient. FMT introduces a complete ecosystem of healthy bacteria, native to CAT/DOG’s digestive tracts; it's the most effective way to replace missing beneficial bacteria and restore balance to the microbiome. AnimalBiome developed a fecal transplant in a capsule, a non-invasive and affordable oral supplement that’s just as effective as the FMT procedure in a vet’s office.
