Pet Microbiome Test
Knowing the microbiome helps in the care of enteropathic dogs and cats.
All enteropathies are characterized by dysbiosis.
Pet Microbiome Test was developed specifically to characterize dysbiosis and support the treatment of chronic enteropathies in dogs and cats.

Pet Microbioma Test
The miniseries explains the microbiome test in practice.
Register * to see the four episodes.
to identify and characterize enteropathy-associated dysbiosis,
to highlight an overgrowth of potential pathogens,
to monitor changes in the microbiome over time following treatments that modify it: diet, fecal transplant, antibiotics or other drugs.
Dysbiosis often becomes the cause of disease itself.The microbiome can be modulated!
And from dysbiosis you can go back to eubiosis!
When to do the Pet Microbiome Test
Recurring gastrointestinal problems
In case of diarrhea in the dog, diarrhea in the cat, vomiting, abdominal pain, weight loss, loss of appetite are lasting or recurring.
After long or recurring therapy with antibiotics or other drugs such as omeprazole and NSAIDs.
Track changes in the microbiome, such as before and after a diet trial or other treatments that modify the microbiome.
Bacteria can sequester or transform drugs into metabolites, with important consequences on the composition of the microbiome, availability and response to the drug, side effects.Studies on drug-bacterial interaction are only in their infancy (Nature 2021).
How does the microbiome test work?
- A small part of fecal material is taken and sent to the laboratory.
- The technicians isolate and "read" the DNA of the bacteria contained in the feces.
- You get a photograph of "who is there and how much there is".
- The level of dysbiosis is estimated by comparing the profile with a population of healthy animals.
