KittyBiome™ Oral Health Test is an easy, at-home test that analyzes the bacteria in your cat's mouth and helps you evaluate the effectiveness of an oral health intervention, such as tooth brushing, oral prebiotics, or dental cleanings.
- Provides a report to help you understand the current status of your cat's oral microbiome.
- Allows you to compare your cat’s oral bacterial community before and after an oral health intervention, such as a dental cleaning.
- Tells you whether your current oral health regimen is working or if an appointment with your veterinarian is recommended.
- Science-backed by AnimalBiome, a leader in microbiome research for pet health.
Test #1 (before): Before an oral intervention (such as a dental cleaning), use one of the swabs provided in the kit to swab the outside of your cat’s gumline on the top and bottom of your cat's mouth. Break off the swab in the “before” tube, and keep that tube in a safe place.
Oral health intervention: Try an oral health intervention, such as tooth brushing or dental cleanings. Use it for at least 14 days.
Test #2 (after): Collect another sample after at least 14 days after your oral intervention. Swab your cat’s gumline as before, and break off the swab in the “after” tube.
Send both (“before” and “after”) sample tubes to AnimalBiome using the pre-addressed mailer (prepaid shipping included within the US).
You will receive a report in about 4 weeks.
