Nestlé has launched the Petivity Microbiome Analysis Kit in the US, which it says helps to deliver tailored nutrition and supplement recommendations for dogs and cats based on their unique gut profile.

The kit uses science-based sequencing technology to analyse a pet’s gut microbiome to unlock key health and nutrition information, the company added.

Pascal Steiner, director of Petcare Nutrition Science at Nestlé stated, “With this kit, we are putting the science of the gut microbiome into the hands of pet owners, empowering them to understand their pet’s health and nutrition even better.

“The recommendations made by the tool are based on over 10 years of prebiotic, probiotic, and microbiome research.”

Dogs and cats host trillions of microbes, with the highest populations residing in their guts.

It plays a vital role in their health and well-being, so understanding a pet’s microbiome enables owners to provide proactive health care, Nestlé added.
