What this test Reveals

Oral Health

Deep Insight into Oral Health:

Understand the complex ecosystem residing in your dog's mouth, including beneficial and harmful bacteria. This test helps identify specific strains that may contribute to common issues like plaque buildup, gum disease, and bad breath, empowering you with the knowledge to take preventative measures.

What does the oral microbiome test reveal?

Our test measures the presence of hundreds of bacteria that are found in a dog's mouth.  We track how the composition of these bacteria changes between young healthy dogs and older dogs that suffer from oral inflammation, such as gingivitis.  We then report a health score of your dog's oral microbiome as well as six specific bacteria that may be contributing to gingivitis and other oral health complications.

Here is more information about the six specific bacteria we report:

Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis): A major causative agent in the initiation and progression of severe forms of periodontal disease. Minimizing P. gingivalis is beneficial for your dog’s oral health. (Nomura et. al., 2020)

Campylobacter sp. RM16192: Campylobacter has been associated with the initiation and progression of severe forms of periodontal disease. Minimizing Campylobacter is beneficial for your dog’s oral health. (Nomura et. al., 2020)

Porphyromonas crevioricanis (P. cangingivalis):  P. cangingivalis is the most prevalent canine oral bacterial species in both plaque from healthy gingiva and plaque from dogs with early periodontitis. Minimizing P. cangingivalis is beneficial for your dog’s oral health. (O’Flynn et. al., 2015) 

Conchiformibius steedae (C. steedae): C. steedae was found to be more abundant in dogs with healthier teeth compared to dogs less healthy teeth based on amount of plaque and abundance of oral diseases in dogs. Increasing the amount of C. steedae is beneficial for your dog’s oral health. (Wallis et. al., 2021) 

Moraxella osloensis (M. osloensis): Our database has indicated that M. osloensis is associated with younger dogs and increasing the amount of M. osloensis is beneficial for your dog’s oral health.

Rothia aeria (R. aeria): R. aeria has been shown to protect against, and even fight plaque growth. Our database has also found that the abundance of R. aeria tends to decrease with age. Therefore, increasing the amount of R. aeria is beneficial for your dog’s oral health. (Mazurel et. al., 2023) 

* All bacteria listed above were determined to be associated with age by a recent study by ProsperK9. As expected, the 3 bacteria you want to minimize tend to increase with age, and the 3 bacteria you want to have

Oral Test Was An Eye Opener!

Our dog's oral test results came back from Prosper K9. On a scale of 1-10, he scored a 2 which is terrible. They were able to isolate the three bad bacteria that cause periodontal disease in dogs. One was medium, two were high, not good. The two main good bacteria he scored low on the quantity of these beneficial oral strains. Again not good. We adopted him a year ago, when he were told he was 1. The other ProsperK9 age test places him more in the age range of 3. I'm hoping once I share this report with our vet he can do some dental treatments to get his oral health back to a healthier state. One of the bad bacteria he scored of concern, P. Gulae is especially concerning because it can be transmitted to humans, no kisses for now. Also, it's been linked to mitral valve regurgitation disease according to one study. That condition can cause dogs heart murmurs and in time congestive hear failure. Our vet has his work cut out for him. We are so very glad to have this information because it's so important to see if we can improve not only his oral health now and in the future but prevent any health conditions to develop as he gets older. This is such an important vital test to the overall wellness for your pet.
