Learning About Your Pet's Symptoms and Products


An Imbalanced Gut May Be Causing Your Pet’s Symptoms. Learn more about symptoms below.


Allergies

 How Are Allergies Connected to Your Pet’s Gut Health?

When your pet’s gut microbiome is out of balance, your pet can develop allergies. An allergy is an exaggerated immune response that causes uncomfortable symptoms like itchy skin, hives, sneezing, watery eyes, and recurring ear infections. Common allergy triggers include pollen, insect bites, and mold spores.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

The gut microbiome is involved in allergies because 70%–80% of immune cells live in the gut. So if your pet suffers from allergy symptoms, rebalancing their gut microbiome can help.


Bad Breath

How Is Bad Breath Connected to Your Pet’s Oral and Gut Health?

If your pet has bad breath, the cause is often an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, either in the mouth or in the gut. Too many harmful bacteria can create an imbalance in your pet’s oral or gut microbiome.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

When the gut microbiome contains too many harmful bacteria, the smelly gas those bacteria produce gets absorbed into the bloodstream and is eventually exhaled as stinky pet breath. That’s one reason conditions related to imbalances in the gut microbiome can cause your pet to have bad breath.

The gut microbiome lives in your pet’s digestive tract, and the oral microbiome has its own community of important bacteria and other microbes that live in your pet’s mouth.


Diarrhea

How Is Diarrhea Connected to Your Pet’s Gut Health? 

When your pet’s gut microbiome is out of balance, common digestive symptoms like diarrhea or loose stool may result. Your pet’s poop should be somewhat firm in consistency and have a distinct shape. Diarrhea can refer to a range of consistencies, from moist but distinct piles of poop to shapeless blobs to watery puddles.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

Frequent diarrhea is often a sign of a digestive issue caused by a problem with your pet’s gut microbiome not functioning properly.


Gut & Digestion

How Are Digestive Issues Connected to Your Pet’s Gut Health?

When your pet’s gut microbiome is out of balance, common digestive symptoms like diarrhea, constipation, regurgitation, or vomiting may result.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

Such gastrointestinal (GI) issues are often a sign that your pet’s gut microbiome is not functioning properly.


Skin & Coat

How Is a Skin & Coat Condition Connected to Your Pet’s Gut Health?

When your pet’s gut microbiome is out of balance, common skin and coat symptoms like itchy skin, redness, and hair loss — or more serious conditions like atopic dermatitis — may result.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

Skin issues and poor coat condition may be signs of an immune system problem that can occur when your pet’s gut microbiome isn’t functioning well. Because 70%–80% of immune system cells live in the gut, your pet’s skin and coat symptoms could actually be a sign that their gut microbiome is out of balance.


Oral Health

How Is Oral Health Connected to Your Pet’s Gut Microbiome and Overall Health?

Your pet’s red, angry gums and bad breath could be caused by bacterial imbalances either in the mouth or in the gut. Oral health and gut health are closely connected: in fact, it’s a two-way street.

Inflamed gums, tooth decay, bad breath, and other oral problems can affect your pet’s health far beyond their mouth. When your pet’s mouth contains too many harmful bacteria, the saliva that gets swallowed carries those bacteria to the gut, where they can multiply and disturb the balance in the gut microbiome.

At the same time, problems in the gut can lead to problems in your pet’s mouth. For example, when your dog’s gut contains too many harmful bacteria, the smelly gas those bacteria produce gets absorbed into the bloodstream and is eventually exhaled as bad breath. An imbalanced gut microbiome also leads to excessive inflammation, which can cause trouble throughout your pet’s body.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

The gut microbiome lives in your pet’s digestive tract, and the oral microbiome has its own community of important bacteria and other microbes that live in your pet’s mouth.


Hairballs (For Cats)

How Are Hairballs Connected to Your Cat’s Gut Health?

For a cat, an occasional regurgitated wad of hair is normal. But, frequent hairballs may be a sign that your cat’s digestive system isn’t moving material along properly. 

When it’s healthy, the digestive tract of a cat can handle a normal amount of fur, easily passing it along until it’s eliminated in their poop. If your cat’s fur builds up into a ball in their stomach, it’s sometimes because the digestive system isn’t able to move it on into the intestines. That movement (motility) requires chemicals produced by certain beneficial bacteria in the gut. Without enough of those important “good” bacteria, the gut microbiome is out of balance, and motility is reduced.

So what is a microbiome? It’s a community of bacteria, fungi, and other microbes that live in your pet’s body and are essential for health.

An imbalanced gut microbiome is one of the factors that can lead to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). And chronic inflammation can severely disrupt the digestive tract’s ability to move food and hair along normally.


How Does a Pet’s Gut Become Imbalanced?

A gut microbiome is imbalanced when it’s missing good bacteria, has too many harmful bacteria, or doesn’t have enough diversity. When the gut is out of balance, immune functions stop working properly, making allergic reactions much more likely to occur. Factors like disease, age, diet, and medications — especially antibiotics — can cause this kind of imbalance in your cat’s gut.


How Can You Give Your Dog & Cat Relief Right Now and Prevent it?

How Can You Know What’s Going On in Your Pet’s Gut & Oral Microbiome?

For gut, we recommend testing your dog’s gut microbiome with our at-home DoggyBiome™ & KittyBiome™ Gut Health Test.

 

Gut microbiome testing can give you a detailed understanding of what’s going on in your pet's gut, revealing any imbalances that may be causing all these symptoms.

You send us a small poop sample from your dog, and we do the rest. Using DNA sequencing, our scientists analyze all the types of bacteria in your dog’s poop and compare them to our healthy dog reference set to determine if an imbalance is present. We then provide an interactive online report of your dog’s gut microbiome with personalized diet and supplement recommendations to help relieve symptoms and improve your dog’s gut and overall health.


For oral, we recommend with our at-home DoggyBiome™ & KittyBiome™ Oral Health Test.

This easy test can assess the health of your dog & cat’s mouth, revealing any bacterial imbalances that may cause bad breath, gum disease, tooth loss, and other issues.You send us a swab of your cat & dog’s gums, and we analyze all the bacteria in your cat & dog’s mouth. You will receive a detailed report with actionable insights to improve your pet’s oral health. The test can also help you evaluate the effectiveness of any oral health intervention, such as tooth brushing, oral prebiotics, or dental cleanings.


Health Tip

Feeding a healthy, balanced diet is the best way to manage your pet’s gut microbiome. If you’ve taken our Oral Health Test or Gut Health Test, follow the diet recommendations in your dog’s personalized report to support the growth of beneficial bacteria.

Since the microbiome is an ever-changing ecosystem that is impacted by multiple factors including diet and medications, we suggest re-testing your pet’s gut health annually or anytime symptoms arise. A well-balanced gut microbiome will help your pet live a healthier, happier life.

Taking care of your cat's & dog’s oral microbiome with good oral hygiene practices (like daily tooth brushing with a pet-specific toothpaste) is the first line of defense for preventing oral health problems.
