ORAL MICROBIOME ANALYSIS

Principle Investigator

Jody Gookin

Description

A one-time saliva sample from your dog or cat to analyze the animal’s oral microbiome (the microbial composition of their mouths). The analysis will allow us to identify patterns associated with the presence or absence of renal or gastrointestinal diseases. Healthy animals will provide us with controls for testing purposes.
