The presence of a taxonomically defined core fecal microbiome in healthy cats and dogs is supported by comparative studies, using humans as animal models. Given here are examples demonstrating that microbiome composition has the potential to identify individuals who are at risk for developing certain chronic health conditions. Microbiome analysis provides the opportunity for disease prevention, therapeutic intervention, as well as longitudinal monitoring of treatment response.
