How it works

Testing Your Pet’s Microbiome

It takes a few simple steps and a small sample of your pet’s stool for our technology to do its trick.

1. Register Your Kit

After you receive your kit, register it online and answer a short questionnaire to help us get to know your pet better by scanning the QR code on the box or visiting

2. Collect a Sample

Using the provided gloves and collection swab, swap your pet’s stool and place the swab with the sample securely in the collection tube. Screw the cap tightly and shake the tube 10 times to fully cover the swab with solution.

3. Mail us the Sample

Place the tube in the return bag and seal it. Then place the sealed bag in the return envelope and place it in your mailbox or drop it at any USPS location.

4. Receive Your Pet’s Online Report

In about 4-6 weeks, you’ll receive an email invite to view your pet’s Microbiome Report on their own Petivity Analysis Kit Dashboard that keeps track of all their results by visiting here:

Key Features

Make Data-Driven Decisions for Your Pet

Our analysis kits dig into part of the trillions of microorganisms that make up your pet’s unique gut profile, and then pair it with our decades of research, so you can make informed nutritional decisions driven toward a long, happy life.

Why GUt Health Matters

An inside look at your pet’s gut health

Poor gut health can lead to more than loose stools. It can affect your pet’s behavior, weight, and ability to absorb the nutrients you feed them. By learning more of what’s going on inside, it can help you make sense of how they look and feel on the outside.

What You’ll LearN

Learn about the “good” stuff and get expert recommendations

Certain types of probiotic bacteria are great for your pet’s digestion, but they can decrease as they age. Your pet’s report will tell you their current level and how it compares to other pets we’ve tested, so you can keep track of it as they age and learn what supplements may help support their digestive health.

Ground-Breaking Technology

Backed by science and powered by Purina

Petivity’s Microbiome Analysis Kits bring together decades of research done by microbiologists, nutritionists, immunologists, veterinarians, and food scientists with state-of-the-art technology. It takes the guesswork out of your pet’s gut health and gives you the confidence you’re doing more for your pet.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of supplements featuring prebiotics and probiotics?

The right probiotic and prebiotic supplement blend can help balance and reinforce your pet’s gut microbiome to promote quality of life. Probiotics are naturally occurring living microorganisms that come in different strains and may support particular areas of pets’ health, from their digestive and immune systems to their overall health and well-being. Prebiotics are a special form of dietary fiber that nourish the good bacteria already in your pet’s gut.

As part of your pet’s analysis, we provide tailored probiotic and prebiotic supplement blend recommendations based on what you tell us about your pet and their microbiome analysis so you can feel confident you are providing optimal care.

Is the analysis appropriate (or recommended) for pets of all life stages?

Pets of all ages, from puppy and kitten to senior, can benefit from a gut health analysis. Our puppy and kitten food and supplement recommendations are based on survey data provided by you. While the reference ranges included in your Analysis Report are based off data collected from dogs and cats one year and older, using the Microbiome Analysis Kit for your puppy or kitten can establish a baseline for their gut profile, allowing you to track changes over time. As your pet ages, beneficial bacteria tend to decrease, so there is value in monitoring their levels over the life of your pet to help you stay proactive in their care.

How do I register my Petivity Microbiome Analysis Kit?

Once you have received your kit, visit Pet Health Smart Devices & Analysis Kits | Petivity and choose “Register Kit” under the Resources tab.

How long does it take to receive the results?

Once our lab receives your sample, you’ll receive a submission verification email. It generally takes 2-3 weeks for the lab analysis to be complete, and you’ll receive emails on what to expect next.

How will I know when the report is ready?

Once the lab analysis is complete and the report is published, you’ll receive an email letting you know that your report is ready. You can access your reports by visiting Pet Health Smart Devices & Analysis Kits | Petivity and logging into your account.
