The new PetBiome Test Kit is designed to help dog owners manage the health of their pets and make informed decisions on diet using the latest technology.
The health of a dog’s gut can be linked to several health issues, including inflammation, bloating, bad breath and food sensitivity, PetBiome says.
“Good health and weight begin with a healthy microbial community (biome),” said Sharon Smith, of PetBiome.
PetBiome is a team of biochemists, microbiologists and geneticists, all with a history of working with some of the UK’s top vets.
The Petbiome Test Kit produces data on the inhabitants of the microbiome from a faecal sample, which is taken and analysed, using the latest genomic technology. This gives owners the personalised information needed to manage the diet, including advice on pro and prebiotic supplements to improve gut health.
Sharon said: “It can be difficult for pet owners to make the best decisions for the health of their dogs but with the PetBiome Test Kit we can remove the guesswork and identify imbalances in the gut microbiome which need addressing with personalised nutrition.”
