Frequently Asked Questions

What is fecal microbiome testing and what are the benefits?

Fecal microbiome testing is the process of sequencing bacterial DNA material from a small fecal sample. We can detect all known bacteria from your dog’s stool sample and then provide you with a comprehensive report.

Testing a cat’s microbiome provides insights into their health. Then imbalances in specific gut bacteria can be addressed to help alleviate such symptoms as diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, and itchy skin that may be associated with some chronic health conditions.

How do I register my sample?

Go to app.animalbiome.com to create an account, and complete your dog’s Pet Profile.

Select “Register Sample” at the top of the page. Enter the six-character ID code listed on the front of your instruction guide.

Please note that your sample must be registered in order for our scientists to complete the analysis.

Is my sample safe in the mail? 

Yes, your sample is safe. The sample tubes contain a special liquid that keeps the bacteria perfectly preserved for analysis, across a very wide range of temperatures. Once inside the tube, the sample is safe for several months.

When will I receive my results? 

You can expect to receive your results about 2 weeks after the sample arrives at the AnimalBiome lab.

Still have questions? Please visit our help center or contact us. We are happy to work with you and/or your veterinarian.
