AnimalBiome Career Opening

Animal Care Specialist

AnimalBiome seeks a part time Animal Care Specialist to join our growing team in Oakland, California. The Animal Care Specialist will report to the Customer Service Supervisor.


About AnimalBiome

Founded in 2016, AnimalBiome is a biotechnology company working on the cutting-edge of microbiome research. Our products both analyze and restore the gut health of cats and dogs. 

Countless bacteria live in your pet’s gut, collectively termed the gut microbiome. Research has shown that a balanced gut microbiome is essential for pet health and longevity. When a pet’s microbiome is improperly balanced, they are at increased risk for a range of health issues, including those related to digestion, skin, and weight. Managing these health concerns can affect quality of life for pets and pet parents. 

At AnimalBiome, we use carefully-screened stool from healthy cats and dogs to restore the microbiomes of sick pets. Our products include a unique Microbiome Test, a Gut Health Restoration Supplement (oral capsules), and a Microbiome Restoration System bundle to test microbiome before and after completing the course of capsules.
