Effects of Varying Doses of a Probiotic Supplement Fed to Healthy Dogs Undergoing Kenneling Stress

  title={Effects of Varying Doses of a Probiotic Supplement Fed to Healthy Dogs Undergoing Kenneling Stress},
  author={Russ Kelley Ms and Kerinne M. Levy and P Mundell and Michael Griffin Hayek and Canine Companions and Russ Kelley},
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…

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 house

Effect of probiotic treatment on the clinical course, intestinal microbiome, and toxigenic Clostridium perfringens in dogs with acute hemorrhagic diarrhea

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.

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.

Comparison of the Therapeutic Effect of Treatment with Antibiotics or Nutraceuticals on Clinical Activity and the Fecal Microbiome of Dogs with Acute Diarrhea

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.

Probiotic Potential of a Lactobacillus Bacterium of Canine Faecal-Origin and Its Impact on Select Gut Health Indices and Immune Response of Dogs

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.

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

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.

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.

Effects of Akkermansia muciniphila Supplementation on Markers of Intestinal Permeability in Dogs Following Antibiotic Treatment

The Akkermansia muciniphila Effect on GIT Permeability in Two Models of Antibiotic Treatment in Healthy Dogs and Probiotic Literature Reference Tables suggest that the latter may be influenced by the former.



Effects of a probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus strain on feed tolerance in dogs with non-specific dietary sensitivity

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.

Effects of probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus strain DSM13241 in healthy adult dogs.

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.

Effects of a probiotic intervention in acute canine gastroenteritis--a controlled clinical trial.

The probiotic tested may reduce the convalescence time in acute self-limiting diarrhoea in dogs.

Effects of probiotic bacteria in dogs with food responsive diarrhoea treated with an elimination diet.

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.

Safety and tolerance of dietary supplementation with a canine-derived probiotic (Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7) fed to growing dogs.

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.

Clinical benefits of probiotic canine-derived Bifidobacterium animalis strain AHC7 in dogs with acute idiopathic diarrhea.

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.

Preliminary investigation of the probiotic potential of Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain GG in horses: fecal recovery following oral administration and safety.

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.

Oral application ofEnterococcus faecium strain EE3 in healthy dogs

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.

Survival of Lactobacillus species (strain GG) in human gastrointestinal tract.

It is demonstrated that Lactobacillus GG can survive and temporarily colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and can affect the metabolic activity of the resident microflora.
