Gut Health Microbiome
Test Your cat’s symptoms (diarrhea, skin, weight, and immunity issues) may be related to a digestive imbalance. The Kitty Kit includes everything you need to collect a stool sample from your cat, and send it back to us for assessment. After we process the sample, you will receive results (via email and online) to understand, and if necessary, help restore your cat's microbiome.
The KittyBiome Gut Health Test contains everything you need, including step-by-step instructions, to take a sample of your pet’s stool and mail it back to our laboratory for analysis. Choose either (ii) two individual test kits; or (ii) two tests for one cat (before and after).
The "before and after" test is intended for when you want to understand how your cat's microbiome changes before and after a particular intervention such as a diet change or fecal transplant.
Microbiome Testing and Gut Restoration Process
Our Microbiome Test and Supplements work individually, and together, to help improve your pet’s gut and overall health.
1. COLLECT: Order a Microbiome Test Kit, collect a small stool sample from your pet, and mail the sample back to us (prepaid envelope).
2. ANALYZE & REPORT: We extract and sequence DNA from the sample to identify your pet’s gut bacteria. You receive a report (in 2-4 weeks) via email AND can go online to explore and understand your pet’s results.
3. RESTORE: Use our Microbiome Supplement to replace and rebalance bacteria that are missing, and rebalance pet gut health.
4. REASSESS: Retest your pet at the end of each supplement cycle, or if symptoms recur. Compare test results through the online Pet Portal.
Supplements may be an ongoing part of your pet’s care, or when medication, diet, illness, age or environment cause troublesome digestive and immunity symptoms.
The science behind AnimalBiome is pretty amazing, and with millions of bacteria being analyzed, there’s a lot of information – if you want to learn more:
DoggyBiome: Gut Health Test
The results were very insightful and I’m grateful for the phone chat explaining how I can apply what I learned to help my dog become healthier. I’ve since bought this for my cat as well and was very impressed. Thanks!
I ordered the animal biome test after my sweet greyhound became deathly ill. He had been having difficulty swallowing food, and after having him see 3 “greyhound savvy” vets he was left malnourished, skeleton thin, and barely able to walk. We were told he probably had Myasthenia Gravis. I insisted that he was having tooth and back trouble, and gut issues from being given an antibiotic. Their recommendations were more antibiotics, an anti fungal, and expensive testing for neurological disease. The Animal Biome test revealed that the antibiotic had killed off all of his beneficial bacteria leaving him with a raging shigella infection. About the same time he developed an abscess from a back molar. The fecal transfer and some homeopathy put everything right in short order and he is now healthy and happy and running again.
I had to call customer service to get extra help because my puppy has some special needs. We scheduled a call with someone to help. It was so nice to have someone talk through my concerns and help come up with a plan specifically for her.
Very responsive with my questions, results came very easy to read
