How to send your samples via VPost?

For Standard package, you will need to send out your samples yourself with your preferred courier vendor. Here we recommend you the cheapest route that you can send in your samples.

The cheapest route will be VPost. We recommend the international registered service which cost $11.90 SGD. You can find the step by step into guiding you how to send via VPost below.

However do note that what we guided you is to declare a inaccurate actual form of the item sent, in order to bypass the custom clearance in the USA, as Fecal Sample is kind of considered a restricted items under VPost rules, therefore there's still a little risk you need to be aware of, it can be hold up or being discarded if custom officer decided to throughly check your package and finds out that it is a restricted item. But usually it does goes through the customs ok.

Also note that we wont be liable for any package being hold up or discard at custom, we are just suggesting the cheapest way you can send your samples in and also stating the risk you might encounter.

Product FAQ

Q : What is fecal microbiome testing and what are the benefits?

A : Fecal microbiome testing is the process of sequencing bacterial DNA material from a small fecal sample. We can detect all known bacteria from your dog's and cat’s stool sample and then provide you with a comprehensive report.

Testing a dog's and cat’s microbiome provides insights into their health. Then imbalances in specific gut bacteria can be addressed to help alleviate such symptoms as diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, and itchy skin that may be associated with some chronic health conditions.


Q : How fresh does the poop sample need to be for analysis?

A : For dogs, we recommend collecting a sample as soon as your dog poops, picking it up in a bag, and bringing it to your sampling area right away. For cats, the sample should be less than 8 hours old.


Q : Do I need to discontinue supplements or medications before taking a poop sample for analysis?

A : When possible, we recommend discontinuing antibiotics and probiotics at least 24 hours before taking a poop sample for analysis.


Q : My pet is having diarrhea. Can I still send a poop sample for analysis?

A : Yes. Our test has been carefully optimized to account for loose stool or diarrhea. When you collect the sample, try to cover as much of the swab tip as you can, and be sure to break off the swab tip and leave it inside the tube.


Q : How do i resgister my sample?

A : Go to app.animalbiome.com to create an account, and complete your dog's or cat’s Pet Profile.

Select “Register Sample” at the top of the page. Enter the six-character ID code listed on the front of your instruction guide.

Please note that your sample must be registered in order for our scientists to complete the analysis.


Q : Where do I find my pet’s sample ID code?

A : The sample ID code can be found in two locations: first, it is printed on the sample tubes themselves; alternatively, it can be found on the front cover of the provided instruction booklet.


What if my pet’s sample ID is not accepted?

If your pet’s sample ID is not accepted, first please double-check the ID code on the sample tube. If the ID is correct, please contact us so that we can identify the problem. Emailing us at team@animalbiome.com is generally the quickest way to get in touch

Q : Do you recommend re-testing, and how often should it be done?

A : Since gut health may change due to time, over-exposure to medications, envrionment toxins exposure and more, depending what work you have put into repairing and maintaince of the gut, it may prove beneficial to opt for another kit on a yearly basis. However if there isn't any much issues on-going you could do it every 2yrs instead just to monitor the gut health in general.

Q : How do you determine that my animal is healthy or not healthy? How are are the results being reference based with?

A : Our Healthy Reference Set. AnimalBiome has built the world’s largest database of cat and dog microbiome samples. So far, we have collected and analyzed more than 30,000 fecal samples from domestic cats and dogs. Out of those, we’ve assembled a group of samples that meet our criteria for healthy pets.

By studying those healthy samples, we were able to build a profile of the specific bacterial taxa (groups) we could expect to find in the gut microbiome of a healthy cat or dog. We identified a “healthy reference set” consisting of 22 taxa that make up the core microbiome of cats and 17 taxa that make up the core microbiome of dogs.
