The Fecal Microbiome in Dogs with Acute Diarrhea and Idiopathic Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Results of this study revealed a bacterial dysbiosis in fecal samples of dogs with various GI disorders, and the observed changes in the microbiome differed between acute and chronic disease states. Expand
Massive parallel 16S rRNA gene pyrosequencing reveals highly diverse fecal bacterial and fungal communities in healthy dogs and cats.
This study evaluated the fecal microbiota of 12 healthy pet dogs and 12 pet cats using bacterial and fungal tag-encoded FLX-Titanium amplicon pyrosequencing to reveal a highly diverse bacterial andFungal microbiota in canine and feline feces. Expand
16S rRNA Gene Pyrosequencing Reveals Bacterial Dysbiosis in the Duodenum of Dogs with Idiopathic Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Dogs with spontaneous IBD exhibit alterations in microbial groups, which bear resemblance to dysbiosis reported in humans with chronic intestinal inflammation, which may serve as useful targets for monitoring intestinal inflammation. Expand
Assessment of microbial diversity along the feline intestinal tract using 16S rRNA gene analysis.
The intestinal microbiota of the SPF cat displayed a reduced bacterial diversity, with 98% of all clones classified in the phylum Firmicutes, with the majority of clones falling within the order Clostridiales. Expand
The Skin Microbiome in Healthy and Allergic Dogs
The study demonstrates that the skin of dogs is inhabited by much more rich and diverse microbial communities than previously thought using culture-based methods. Expand
Molecular-phylogenetic characterization of microbial communities imbalances in the small intestine of dogs with inflammatory bowel disease.
In conclusion, canine IBD is associated with altered duodenal microbial communities compared with healthy controls and the most profound difference involved enrichment of the IBD dogs with members of the Enterobacteriaceae family. Expand
Lipid metabolism and hyperlipidemia in dogs.
Hypertriglyceridemia of Miniature Schnauzers is the most common type of primary hyperlipidemia in dogs in the United States, and appears to have a genetic basis although its etiology remains unknown. Expand

Initial data would suggest that serum fPLI is the most sensitive and specific diagnostic test for feline pancreatitis, but until further data are available, serum f PLI should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests to arrive at a diagnosis of f cat pancreatitis. Expand
Analysis of bacterial diversity in the canine duodenum, jejunum, ileum, and colon by comparative 16S rRNA gene analysis.
The study aim was to describe the diversity of the intraluminal intestinal microbial community in dogs by direct sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA gene. Intestinal content was collected from theExpand
Comparison of Microbiological, Histological, and Immunomodulatory Parameters in Response to Treatment with Either Combination Therapy with Prednisone and Metronidazole or Probiotic VSL#3 Strains in
A protective effect of VSL#3 strains was observed in dogs with IBD, with a significant decrease in clinical and histological scores and a decrease in CD3+ T-cell infiltration and a normalization of dysbiosis after long-term therapy was observed. Expand
