Twenty-four dogs were divided into three equal groups. Lincomycin was administered intramuscularly to all groups. However, group II was given S. boulardii after lincomycin induced diarrhoea occurred, and in group III, lincomycin was administered together with S. boulardii. Lincomycin caused diarrhoea in groups I (in 7.8±1.6 d) and II (in 6.9±2 d), but it did not cause diarrhoea in group III. The durations of diarrhoea were significantly different (P<0.05) between group I (6.5±1.2 d) and group…

Effect of probiotic formulation containing Bacillus spp. on diarrhoea in dogs

The study demonstrates the efficacy of B. coagulans and B. subtilis in the treatment of diarrhoea in dogs and shows significant improvement in stool consistency in the probiotic treated group as compared to placebo.

Effect of Hydrolyzed Yeast Administration on Faecal Microbiota, Haematology, Serum Biochemistry and Cellular Immunity in Healthy Dogs

The observation of some unexpected effects emphasizes the need for reassessment to use yeasts products for dogs but further studies using different doses are necessary.

Clinical effect of probiotics in prevention or treatment of gastrointestinal disease in dogs: A systematic review

The current data point toward a very limited and possibly clinically unimportant effect for prevention or treatment of acute gastrointestinal disease, whereas probiotic supplement seems not to add significant improvement for chronic gastrointestinal disease.

Effects of s. Cerevisiae var. Boulardii in gastrointestinal disorders

The increasing interest in the consumption of products containing probiotics is the result of numerous researches on their beneficial influence on human health. The promising one includes the

Modulation of the intestinal microbiota of dogs by kefir as a functional dairy product.

2-wk kefir administration successfully modified the gut microbiota without causing any clinically evident adverse effects and could be further developed as a novel probiotic food supplement for dogs to improve the quality of life of dogs.

Understanding the canine intestinal microbiota and its modification by pro‐, pre‐ and synbiotics – what is the evidence?

This review summarises the current knowledge of the intestinal microbiome composition in the dog and evaluates the evidence for probiotic use in canine GI diseases to date, to provide veterinarians with evidence‐based information on when and why these products could be useful in preventing or treating canine GI conditions.

Antibiotikaeinsatz beim akuten Durchfall des Hundes – Übersicht potenzieller Risiken, Indikationen und Alternativen

Zusammenfassung Antibiotika werden bei Hunden mit Magen-Darm-Problemen wie akutem Durchfall (AD) in Deutschland häufig eingesetzt. In Einklang mit den weltweiten Bemühungen, den Antibiotikaeinsatz

Influence of Antibiotics on the Recovery and Kinetics of Saccharomyces boulardii in Rats

Analysis of recovery and kinetic data showed that viable cells of SB are likely to be present at the highest concentration under those conditions where its action is needed, i.e., in the antibiotic-treated gastrointestinal tract.

Response of Human and Rat Small Intestinal Mucosa to Oral Administration of Saccharomyces boulardii

Short-term oral treatment of human volunteers and rats with S.b. is associated with a marked increase in the activity of disaccharidases without morphological alteration of the intestinal mucosa, and the findings do not suggest an effect of S.B. on the incorporation rate of enzymes into the brush border membrane.

Antibiotic-associated diarrhoea, Clostridium difficile, and short-chain fatty acids.

Intensive treatment with antibiotics directed against the colonic flora resulted in diarrhea in the vast majority of patients, but the diarrhoea was self-limiting despite continual antibiotic treatment and very low faecal concentrations of SCFAs.

Prairie dog model for antimicrobial agent-induced Clostridium difficile diarrhea

The results demonstrate that in prairie dogs cefoxitin induces C. difficile-induced diarrhea and conclude that the prairie dog is another model for the study of antibiotic- induced diarrhea.

Influence of ampicillin, clindamycin, and metronidazole on faecal excretion of short-chain fatty acids in healthy subjects.

Clindamycin and ampicillin, but not metronidazole, induce pronounced changes in faecal SCFAs, most likely reflecting severe changes in the colonic ecosystem and the concentration of antimicrobially active drug in the gut.

Gastrointestinal carriage of Clostridium difficile in cats and dogs attending veterinary clinics

The findings suggest that household pets may be a potentially significant reservoir of infection with C. difficile.

Effects of oral Saccharomyces boulardii on bacterial overgrowth, translocation, and intestinal adaptation after small-bowel resection in rats.

Data indicate that, after resection, S. boulardii does not modify bacterial overgrowth or translocation frequency but does significantly enhance the functional adaptation of the remaining intestinal segments.

A Randomized Trial of Yogurt for Prevention of Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea

Dietary supplementation with yogurt is a simple, effective, and safe treatment that decreases the incidence and duration of AAD.

The results suggest that C. difficile toxin can cause antibiotic-associated colitis in guinea pigs and treatment with vancomycin reduced the number of deaths and increased the survival time of penicillin-treated animals.
