What is the Gut Microbiome?
A microbiome is the combined genetic material of all organisms within a specific area of the body. For example, a cat’s skin has its own microbiome. So does a cat’s mouth. One of the most important microbiomes to a pet’s health is in their gut.
The gut microbiome contains billions of microbes and bacteria, which aid in food digestion, combat harmful pathogens, influence inflammation and more.
When there’s an imbalance, it can lead to an array of health concerns.
