First Case Report of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in a Cat in

  title={First Case Report of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in a Cat in},
ABST RACT This case report describes a 10-year-old, 2.9 kg, female spayed Abyssinian cat diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (UC), unresponsive to conventional therapy. A fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) through rectal (enema) administration was performed as a last therapeutic option for the cat before euthanasia, and there was an immediate improvement after the procedure in regards to fecal texture, odor and color. After the initial successful response, the cat developed a clinical relapse… Expand

Figures from this paper


An overview of fecal microbiota transplantation: techniques, indications, and outcomes.
This review aims to provide an overview of fecal microbiota transplantation, to summarize the data on its efficacy, and to provide the reader with an understanding of how to perform this novel treatment. Expand
Systematic review of intestinal microbiota transplantation (fecal bacteriotherapy) for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.
Effectiveness varied by route of instillation, relationship to stool donor, volume of IMT given, and treatment before infusion, but findings can guide physicians interested in implementing the procedure until better designed studies are conducted to confirm best practices. Expand
Standardized Frozen Preparation for Transplantation of Fecal Microbiota for Recurrent Clostridium difficile Infection
Standardization of material preparation significantly simplified the practical aspects of FMT without loss of apparent efficacy in clearing recurrent CDI in patients failing antibiotic therapy. Expand
Fecal microbiota transplantation and emerging applications
The field of microbiota-related disorders is currently in its infancy; it certainly is an exciting time in the burgeoning science of FMT and the authors expect to see new and previously unexpected applications in the near future. Expand
Enteropathogenic bacteria in dogs and cats: diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment, and control.
This report offers a consensus opinion on the diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment, and control of the primary enteropathogenic bacteria in dogs and cats, with an emphasis on Clostridium difficile,Expand
Efficacy of oral fecal bacteriotherapy in rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) with chronic diarrhea.
Whether orally administered fecal bacteriotherapy would reduce the overall incidence of chronic diarrhea during a 60-d follow-up period in the treatment group compared with control macaques is determined. Expand
Update on Fecal Microbiota Transplantation 2015: Indications, Methodologies, Mechanisms, and Outlook.
Fecal microbiota transplantation has been demonstrated to durably alter the gut microbiota of the recipient and has shown efficacy in the treatment of patients with recurrent CDI, and further research is needed to understand the possible role of FMT in these other conditions. Expand

Fecal transplantation by low volume enema is an effective and safe option for patients with chronic relapsing CDI, refractory to other therapies and has the potential to dramatically increase the number of patients who could benefit from this therapy. Expand
Diagnosis and interpretation of intestinal dysbiosis in dogs and cats.
The loss of normal commensal bacterial microbiota in acute and chronic intestinal diseases has been linked to metabolic changes, for example alterations in immunomodulatory bacterial metabolites, such as short chain fatty acids and secondary bile acids, which highlights the importance of dysbiosis in the pathophysiology of gastrointestinal diseases.
