Our Story

It takes guts to raise a pet.

Through the messes and the cuddles and the laughter and the scares.

It takes guts to really care.

To ask the big questions and really actually truly understand.

It takes guts to admit you need a little help sometimes.

To reach out to the experts and put your faith in a stranger that cares.

It takes guts to solve big problems using a very unconventional method.

To use poop to make pets happier and healthier.

But that's exactly what we do.

Your pet's waste is the best indicator as to how they're feeling.

And, really, what could matter more?

AnimalBiome is built on a deep understanding of the microbiome.

A healthy gut creates “good poop” and “good poop” prompts thumbs up.

It's easy: instead of tossing your pet’s poop like usual, send it to us.

We analyze it to the extreme, and it tells us what’s happening with them.

If anything is off, we've created a unique gut restoration system to make it right.

We believe that every living thing has the right to feel good.

But it's not just magically going to happen.

We've got to be proactive.

We've got to take the step.

We've got to have guts to feel good.

AnimalBiome. Guts to feel good.
