What Veterinarians Have to Say About AnimalBiome Veterinary

"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.

With AnimalBiome Veterinary 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.
