What Veterinarians Have to Say About AnimalBiome
“I can’t imagine practicing without it.”
Dr. Arielle Herndobler, DVM uses AnimalBiome Gut Restore Supplement (FMT capsules) to treat allergies, gastrointestinal problems and autoimmune disorders. Unlike probiotics, which must be given daily, Gut Restore is discontinued once the gut microbiome is balanced, Dr. Herndobler says. Dr. Herndobler prescribes Gut Restore in addition to dietary modification and other therapies, and she says she considers the FMT capsules an essential part of any veterinarian’s toolkit. Dr. Arielle Herndobler, DVM
“My clients rave about AnimalBiome products.”
AnimalBiome has brought healing to a new level for pets at my holistic practice who are dealing with long term skin and digestive issues. With DoggyBiome & KittyBiome Gut Restoration and Gut Maintenance products I can target the imbalances in the microbiome that lay at the foundation of these problems. Their professional reports and consults help with supplement and dietary recommendations for each pet which makes my job easier and my clients are raving about the results. Dr. Sue Howell DVM, Thrive Wholistic Veterinary Care
“I trust and rely upon AnimalBiome products.”
I trust and rely on AnimalBiome testing to give me the most complete picture of my patient’s gut flora good and bad. Their extensive library of bacterial behaviors and functions helps me to guide diet modification, exercise programs, and if formal gut restoration will be helpful. The AnimalBiome testing really provides a piece of the puzzle for these difficult cases we otherwise would have neglected. Dr. Diana Drumm DVM, Animal Healing Center
“AnimalBiome has been a wonderful resource.”
I have used AnimalBiome's analysis and FMT capsules with many patients over the last several years, and have seen remarkable improvements in canine and feline health over time, both in terms of food sensitivities and intolerances and skin conditions. The importance of a healthy microbiome is becoming more apparent every year, and AnimalBiome has been a wonderful resource. The staff is incredibly helpful to my inquiries as well as my clients. I highly recommend them. Robin Woodley, DVM, CVA, Hawai'i Veterinary Acupuncture
“I consider AnimalBiome as an invaluable part of my team.”
AnimalBiome capsules are a crucial therapeutic agent I use in my practice with most animals I see. With digestive issues being all too prevalent, I'm grateful to have access to healthy biomes that allow the restoration of my patients' gut flora and as a result their overall health. I honestly don't know what I would do if I couldn't test and treat in this way. Much of my appreciation also goes to the AnimalBiome team. With their passion for our animal friends' wellbeing and love of microbes and research I consider them an invaluable part of my team. Odette Suter, DVM, Peak Animal Health Center
