Why Are We Interested In Healthy Pet Poop?
There are trillions of bacteria and other important microbes that live along the intestinal tract of healthy pets. These microorganisms play a critical role in an animal’s overall health, from nutrient absorption, to immune function, and preventing disease.
There are many health conditions that are related to an imbalance in the bacteria in cats and dogs. And they are quite common too! About one in three pets suffers from digestive or skin-related symptoms that could be improved with restoring healthy gut bacteria.
A healthy community of gut microorganisms can be transferred to a sick recipient through a fecal transplant. We need healthy poop from healthy donors to create safe fecal transplants for pets in need. Learn more about our science and fecal transplants here.
