How We Got This Score

Your cat’s gut health score is based on the diversity of bacteria living in the cat's gut.

Our assessment incorporates both the richness and evenness values of gut bacteria to look at the microbiota as a whole.

A diverse gut has a balance between richness and evenness, meaning a sample with 100 types of bacteria that are equally represented is actually more diverse than one that has 200 types, with only one type making up the majority of the sample.

A diverse microbiome helps keep your pet healthy because it has microbes to fulfill a wide range of functions.

How to Read This Report

This report serves as a guide and is not to be used for medical diagnostic purposes. What defines a microbiome as ‘healthy’ is evolving as scientists continue to learn about microbiome balance and its role in animal health.

Values outside of the average range do not necessarily mean your pet is unhealthy or needs medical attention. We always recommend consulting with your veterinarian before making any major changes in your pet's diet. The health of your pet is our number one priority!
