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.

Features:

  • Fast results, receive your report in about 2-3 weeks from receipt of sample
  • Detects bacterial imbalances and identifies problematic groups
  • Actionable recommendations for personalized diet, supplement, or lifestyle changes to improve cat health
  • Learn how to change your cat’s diet to support their health
  • Allows you to see how the gut responds to dietary changes or treatments by retesting

My cat has had chronic digestive issues for a long time, and my vet recommended the Kitty Biome gut health test. It was so helpful to get detailed information about his gut biome!

Used this test to check the gut health of my IBD kitty. Will be interesting to see how it has changed after being on the KittyBiome capsules. Very interesting information.

Mystery Solved

Our cat is five years old and for the last three years has been an excessive groomer to the point of causing infection and significant hair loss on her belly. We'd tried special diets, allergy shots, and a number of other things. Last summer one of her vets recommended doing the KittyBiome test. At the time, it was a bit more expensive than our budget allowed. By December we were able to do it and also the Gut Restore. What we learned from the test helped us figure out what was out of whack with her. We've had to do a few rounds of the Gut Restore and seen more and more long lasting improvement with each round and are cautiously optimistic that we've finally solved this mystery. It was definitely worth the money.

Worth it

Frequent & seriously stinky wet poops from our 1.5yo male kitty his whole life. Saw this test & thought, why not? Test was user friendly & results were helpful. Started kitty on gut maintenance & s boulardii fos powder. Within 3 weeks, both his gut balance & poop were much improved. Thank you!

Excellent information

I had no trouble following the directions to collect and send my cat’s first sample. The information provided was invaluable. We followed all the recommendations and saw immediate and lasting improvement.

After 6 months of treatment, now on a steady maintenance plan, I tried to submit my second sample to see where we stand. Only—there was no liquid left in the vials! I reached out via email on a weekend and had a response before the team returned on Monday. AnimalBiome sent new vials (the liquid can evaporate over time as the lids don’t always get fully snapped on after being filled) that week and by the following weekend, I had another sample collected and ready to send back.

Great company, great customer support, and I’m hoping for results that show the great improvements I’ve observed in my boy’s stool!

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 cat’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 cat’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 2-3 weeks after the sample arrives at our lab.

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