Thank you for your interest! It may sound strange, but poop from healthy cats and dogs is being used to help sick pets. This is called a “fecal transplant,”and it is more than 80% effective at relieving symptoms like chronic diarrhea, vomiting, and itchy skin.
Based in Oakland and founded by researchers from UC Davis and UC Berkeley, AnimalBiome uses the latest microbiome science to improve the gut health of cats and dogs. Watch a customer story about Emmy the dog!
Healthy cats and dogs each have their own healthy community of beneficial bacteria that live in their gut. There are millions of viable live beneficial bacteria in healthy pet poop. When a pet is sick, they may lose important beneficial bacteria. Fecal transplants are effective because they restore the balance of beneficial bacteria to the gut. Learn more about the science here.
We NEED more healthy poop donors, because there are more sick pets who need fecal transplants than our current donors can supply. Perhaps your pet can be one of them!
