One-size-fits-all advice that didn’t work

"I've always been a committed dog owner, so when my dogs faced persistent digestive issues, like most owners, I sought out the usual treatments and consulted my vet. Unhappy with the lack of improvements, I started looking into gut health and uncovered a world of research that revealed the microbiome's crucial role in digestion and overall health.

Collaborating with nutritional experts, I developed a tailored plan of dietary supplements for my dogs, leading to remarkable improvements in just four months, especially in my most affected dog.

This journey inspired me to start BIOME9. Teaming up with Asher and our top team of data and bio-scientists, my hope is that we can offer this personalised, science-backed approach to nutrition to pet owners across the world."

Creating a healthier tomorrow for the dogs we love.

We’re tackling a global problem. Our pets face a silent struggle.

Modern pets are battling more than just fleas. From the loss of natural diet benefits, excessive use of chemical treatments and antibiotics, global soil degradation and ever narrowing gene pools, their health is on a downward spiral.

But there’s hope, and at BIOME9 we’re pioneering cutting-edge science, research and AI, to deep-dive into their microbiomes, identify gaps, and offer personalised support strategies to combat the effects of modern lifestyles. And in doing so, we’re hoping to redefine the benchmark for global pet health and wellbeing.
