What is MiDOG Microbiome Testing?

The MiDOG microbiome test is a microbial identification test grounded on scientific research that provides veterinarians DNA evidence for the guided treatment of canine microbial infections. A MiDOG microbiome test provides the technologies for the accurate identification of all microorganisms within a pet’s sample, independent of culturing.

Our test provides faster, more comprehensive results than standard culture-based tests:
With standard culture-based testing, 99% of microorganisms cannot be cultured and are thus missed upon analysis. Next Generation DNA Sequencing is the new standard for the detection and identification of microorganisms, and MiDOG pet microbiome testing is now making this technology available to veterinarians and pet owners.

The MiDOG microbiome testing service provides the workflow necessary to ascertain the composition and identity of all microorganisms in a pet’s sample, down to the species level. All work is performed at the state-of-the-art MiDOG pet microbiome testing facility and the pet owner and veterinarian are provided a comprehensive report on all bacteria and fungi comprising a sample. MiDOG microbiome test report provides an accurate diagnosis and pinpoint treatment to save pet’s lives.

Did you know 99% of organisms cannot be cultured in the lab and are thus missed upon analysis?

Compared to culturing tests, the MiDOG microbiome test uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and tells you much faster about ALL of the organisms that are present on your sample, and how your patient might respond to treatment. This can significantly shorten the time that your patient is suffering from infections or lesions and aid effective antibiotic stewardship.

If you are exhausted and frustrated by multiple tests performed with no accurate diagnosis, then MiDOG pet microbiome testing may be the solution for you.

Next Generation Sequencing is a molecular based method used in MiDOG’s pet microbiome testing that can sequence and detect the DNA of ALL microbes that live on the dog’s skin, without having to grow any of these organisms in a laboratory first. NGS is considered the gold standard for the detection and identification of microorganisms.

Pet Microbiome Testing for All Types of Samples and Animals

Accurate Testing for Birds, Reptiles, Cats, Dogs, Rabbits, Ferrets, and More!

MiDOG Pet Microbial Testing Can Be Used to Diagnose…

Urinary Tract Infections, Ear Infections, Skin Infection, GI Infections, and More!

Validated by Veterinarians

“Clients expect their veterinarians to stay up to date on all matters that affect the health and well being of their non-human family members. The current technique that we have used to determine the presence and antibiotic sensitivity of organisms causing disease in our pets is over a century old.

With the emergence of dangerous antibacterial resistance, it is critical that veterinarians are able to offer laser focused diagnostics and treatment. MiDog enables us to offer care that exceeds the typical standard of care.”

Bernadine Cruz, DVM, Laguna Hills Animal Hospital Laguna Woods, CA

“I love the absolute abundance and comparing the fungal with bacterial infection. I do not worry as much about getting a false negative urinary infection reading as I do with traditional urine cultures. Several times the same urine would culture negative but MiDOG would detect pathogens.”

Michael Morgan, DVMQuail Animal Hospital, Tustin, CA

“The MiDOG All-in-One Test is amazing, I would use it instead of culture and sensitivity.  Such rapid and detailed results, I will reach for MiDOG before culture next time!

Thank you very much MiDOG, for sharing the opportunity to try your technology.”

Martha Smith-Blackmore, DVM, President of Forensic Veterinary Investigations, LLC – Boston, MA

The MiDOG All-in-One Microbial Test is our new gold standard of pathogen identification. The results are so accurate and valuable – especially with assessing both bacterial and fungal infections with the same sample.

Thank you MiDOG!”

Kathy Wentworth, DVM, Diplomate ABVP Canine and Feline Practice – PetPoint Medical Center, Irvine, CA

“The MiDOG staff was extremely helpful and supportive.”

Cathy Curtis, DVM – London, UK

“I have had great results using the MiDOG® Test. Compared to traditional culture tests, I am better able to target the treatment for dogs because the MiDOG® Test is so sensitive that it identifies all pathogens including bacteria and fungi, as well as antibiotic sensitivity.

The cost and turnaround time are about the same as a culture test, but I get much more data. The test has great performance and I believe the NGS technology will be a game changer for veterinarians treating dogs with lesions or other infections.”

Michael Kavanagh, DVM, Practice owner – Saddleback Animal Hospital, Tustin, CA
