Dogs undergoing stress may experience gastrointestinal disturbances that can manifest as loose stool or diarrhea. The objective of this study was to examine the efficacy of feeding varying doses of a canine-derived probiotic supplement (Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7) for reducing stressrelated gastrointestinal disturbances in dogs that were relocated from homes to a kennel environment. Healthy, young adult dogs (n = 134) were randomly assigned to one of four supplements containing either… Expand
Efficacy of a Probiotic‐Prebiotic Supplement on Incidence of Diarrhea in a Dog Shelter: A Randomized, Double‐Blind, Placebo‐Controlled Trial
Background Diarrhea is the most frequent morbidity affecting kenneled dogs in animal shelters. Diarrhea impacts animal welfare and the finances of the shelter as they must treat, clean, and houseExpand
Effect of probiotic treatment on the clinical course, intestinal microbiome, and toxigenic Clostridium perfringens in dogs with acute hemorrhagic diarrhea
TLDR
The probiotic treatment was associated with an accelerated normalization of the intestinal microbiome and dogs with aseptic AHDS showed a rapid decrease of netF toxin genes and fast clinical recovery in both groups under symptomatic treatment without antibiotics. Expand
Effect of Bifidobacterium animalis B/12 administration in healthy dogs.
TLDR
The results show that many of these effects could also still be recorded several weeks after the treatment period, and the phagocytic activity of leukocytes was higher in dogs after 14-day consumption of B/12 strain. Expand
Clinical effect of probiotics in prevention or treatment of gastrointestinal disease in dogs: A systematic review
TLDR
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. Expand
Comparison of the Therapeutic Effect of Treatment with Antibiotics or Nutraceuticals on Clinical Activity and the Fecal Microbiome of Dogs with Acute Diarrhea
TLDR
Evaluated effects in dogs with acute non-hemorrhagic diarrhea of the administration of an antibiotic combination in comparison to a nutraceutical product suggest that this nutr pharmaceutical treatment had a similar clinical effect compared to the antibiotic formulation and may represent an alternative to commonly used antimicrobial therapy. Expand
Probiotic Potential of a Lactobacillus Bacterium of Canine Faecal-Origin and Its Impact on Select Gut Health Indices and Immune Response of Dogs
TLDR
It is concluded that the canine-origin L. johnsonii CPN23, in addition to possessing all the in vitro functional attributes of a candidate probiotic, also has the potential to be used as a probiotic in pet nutrition programs. Expand
Efficacy of an orally administered anti‐diarrheal probiotic paste (Pro‐Kolin Advanced) in dogs with acute diarrhea: A randomized, placebo‐controlled, double‐blinded clinical study
TLDR
The ADPP was associated with better clinical outcome compared to placebo in dogs with acute, uncomplicated diarrhea and the requirement for AMI and may accelerate resolution of acute diarrhea in dogs. Expand
Experimental application of Lactobacillus fermentum CCM 7421 in combination with chlorophyllin in dogs
TLDR
Results showed no growth inhibition of strain CCM 7421 by 0.05–0.25 % of chlorophyllin in broth after 24 h and reduced growth of staphylococci, Listeria monocytogenes and Citrobacter freundii was observed. Expand
Value of Probiotics in Canine and Feline Gastroenterology.

  • 2021
TLDR
Preliminary evidence shows that specific preparations are beneficial in parvovirus infections and acute hemorrhagic diarrhea syndrome in dogs and in Tritrichomonas fetus infection in cats. Expand
Understanding the canine intestinal microbiota and its modification by pro‐, pre‐ and synbiotics – what is the evidence?
TLDR
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.

Effects of a probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus strain on feed tolerance in dogs with non-specific dietary sensitivity
TLDR
It can be concluded that L. acidophilus DSM 13241 can stabilise the digestive processes in dogs with NSS and improveFaecal consistency, faecal dry matter and defecation frequency. Expand
Effects of probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus strain DSM13241 in healthy adult dogs.
TLDR
Data indicate that L. acidophilus can be successfully incorporated into a dry dog food, survive transit through the canine gastrointestinal tract, and populate the colon and are associated with local and systemic changes. Expand
Effect of a Lactobacillus animalis strain on composition and metabolism of the intestinal microflora in adult dogs.
TLDR
The present results show that LA4 was able to survive gastrointestinal passage and transitorily colonize the dog intestine where, based on the in vitro results, it could positively influence composition and metabolism of the intestinal microflora. Expand
Effects of a probiotic intervention in acute canine gastroenteritis--a controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
The probiotic tested may reduce the convalescence time in acute self-limiting diarrhoea in dogs. Expand
Effects of probiotic bacteria in dogs with food responsive diarrhoea treated with an elimination diet.
TLDR
All dogs clinically improved after treatment, but cytokine patterns were not associated with the clinical features irrespective of the dietary supplementation, and the Canine Inflammatory Bowel Disease Activity Index decreased. Expand
Safety and tolerance of dietary supplementation with a canine-derived probiotic (Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7) fed to growing dogs.
TLDR
This study evaluated the safety and tolerance of dietary supplementation with a canine-derived probiotic, Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7, fed to growing beagles beginning at approximately 6 months of age. Expand
Preliminary evaluation of Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG, a potential probiotic in dogs.
TLDR
Fecal colonization of LGG in dogs is somewhat variable; however, clinical studies are indicated to evaluate this organism in the treatment and prevention of canine disease. Expand
Clinical benefits of probiotic canine-derived Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7 in dogs with acute idiopathic diarrhea.
TLDR
Proper nutritional management with the probiotic fed at 2 x 10 CFU/day significantly reduced the time to resolution and reduced the percentage of dogs that were administered metronidazole compared with placebo. Expand
Preliminary investigation of the probiotic potential of Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG in horses: fecal recovery following oral administration and safety.
TLDR
The presence of this organism in the feces of adult horses may only represent passive movement through the intestinal tract, not actual colonization, and clinical studies evaluating this probiotic are indicated in foals. Expand
Oral application ofEnterococcus faecium strain EE3 in healthy dogs
TLDR
The ability of canine strainEnterococcus faecium EE3 to survive in healthy dogs and its effect on microbiological and biochemical parameters was determined and the levels of cholesterol were brought to the physiological level. Expand
