Kitty Kit: Microbiome Assessment

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.

+Standard shipping is free!
Your purchase supports research to develop innovative, science-backed treatments for the millions of pets suffering from digestive disorders. Thanks for advancing animal health.

Gut Health Microbiome Test for Cats

The Kitty Kit Microbiome Test Kit contains everything you need, including step-by-step instructions, to take a sample of your pet’s stool and mail it back (in a pre-paid envelope) to our laboratory for analysis.

  1. Two collection tubes (one is a backup)
  2. Sterile cotton swabs to sample your pet’s fecal matter (sunflower seed size sample)
  3. Surgical gloves
  4. Step-by-step instructions
  5. A small plastic bag for enclosing the collection tube
  6. A padded mailer (already addressed) to return your collection tube to the AnimalBiome laboratory (pre-paid shipping within the continental US)

Notes: The fresher the stool sample, the more accurate the results.

Microbiome Testing and Gut Restoration Process

Our Microbiome Tests 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 (pre-paid 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 Gut Restoration 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, illness, diet, 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:
