Epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE) is reproduced successfully in the present study by feeding rabbits a low-fibre diet, and high-throughput sequencing and quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) analysis were applied to examine the microbial variations in the stomach, small intestine and caecum. The evenness was disturbed and the richness was decreased in the ERE groups. When the rabbits were suffering from ERE, the abundance of the Firmicutes was decreased in three parts of the digestive tract… 
Metataxonomic and Histopathological Study of Rabbit Epizootic Enteropathy in Mexico
TLDR
Comparisons of the lesions and gastrointestinal microbiota of healthy and positive-ERE rabbits revealed a difference in the diversity and abundance of the gastrointestinal microbiota in rabbits with ERE, and smaller crypt sizes in the colon of ERE rabbits.
Rabbit Enteropathies on Commercial Farms in the Iberian Peninsula: Etiological Agents Identified in 2018–2019
TLDR
A global and updated overview of the frequency of detection of the diverse etiological agents causing Digestive disorders in rabbit farms, since 757 clinical cases were analyzed during 2018 and 2019 is provided.
Dietary supplementation of chestnut and quebracho tannins mix: Effect on caecal microbial communities and live performance of growing rabbits.
TLDR
Investigation of the influence on caecal microbial communities of the supplementation of a chestnut and quebracho tannins mix in meat rabbit's diet found no significant differences in richness and diversity among different groups.
Dynamic distribution of gut microbiota in meat rabbits at different growth stages and relationship with average daily gain (ADG)
TLDR
The findings give a glimpse into the dynamic shifts in gut microbiota of meat rabbits and provide a theoretical basis for gut microbiota modulation to improve ADG in the meat rabbit industry.
Diversity and Co-occurrence Pattern Analysis of Cecal Microbiota Establishment at the Onset of Solid Feeding in Young Rabbits
TLDR
The feeding strategy at the onset of solid feed ingestion exhibited only a moderate effect on the microbial community structure (P = 0.072), although the LL group seemed to reach faster maturity compared to the two other groups.
Early Introduction of Solid Feeds: Ingestion Level Matters More Than Prebiotic Supplementation for Shaping Gut Microbiota
TLDR
By providing comprehensive results on the regulation of microbial community structure at the onset of solid feed intake, this research paves the way for further studies on digestive ecosystem maturation.
Epizootic Rabbit Enteropathy (ERE): A Review of Current Knowledge
This literature review deals with Epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE), a condition which is potentially fatal to infected animals and continues to threaten the rabbit production industry
Effects of Zinc Source and Enzyme Addition on the Fecal Microbiota of Dogs
TLDR
The effects of two zinc sources and the addition of a multi-enzymatic complex from the solid-state fermentation of Aspergillus niger on end-products of fecal fermentation and fecal microbiota of adult Beagles fed a high-phytate diet were evaluated.
The Value of Gut Microbiota to Predict Feed Efficiency and Growth of Rabbits Under Different Feeding Regimes
TLDR
Rabbit growth and feed efficiency are influenced by host cecal microbiota and considering microbial information in models improve the prediction of these complex phenotypes, Nonetheless, the prior assumptions for the microbial effects and the method used condition the quality of the predictions.
Effects of Gut Microbiome and Short-Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs) on Finishing Weight of Meat Rabbits
TLDR
Gut microbiome explained nearly 11% of the variation in finishing weight, and the findings revealed that a subset of metagenomic species could act as predictors of finishing weight.

Changes in Cecal Microbiota and Mucosal Gene Expression Revealed New Aspects of Epizootic Rabbit Enteropathy
TLDR
Data obtained in this work reinforced the notion that ERE morbidity and mortality is possibly caused by an overgrowth of different pathogens in the gut of animals whose immune defence mechanisms seem not to be adequately responding.
Establishment, counts, and identification of the fibrolytic microflora in the digestive tract of rabbit. Influence of feed cellulose content
In the young rabbit, the celluloytic population appeared in the cecum and colon microflora between 12 and 16 days after birth. It increased rapidly with age to stabilize at a level of about 107
Infectious agents associated with epizootic rabbit enteropathy: Isolation and attempts to reproduce the syndrome
TLDR
Bacteriological, virological and parasitical examination of the intestinal contents of rabbits that had died either in spontaneous field cases or after experimental reproduction of ERE, were undertaken in an attempt to identify infectious agents that may play a role in the disease.
Fractionation of the reference inoculum of epizootic rabbit enteropathy in discontinuous sucrose gradient identifies aetiological agents in high density fractions.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that ERE is a bacterial disease and does not have a viral or parasitic aetiology.
Experimentally induced epizootic rabbit enteropathy: clinical, histopathologicaI, ultrastructural, bacteriological and haematological findings
TLDR
The anatomopathologic changes concerning the small intestine and those concerning the blood profile, in experimentally infected rabbits were described and major villous changes were atrophy, fusion, destruction and loss of epithelial cells.
Epizootic Rabbit Enteropathy: experimental transmission and clinical characterization.
TLDR
Using specific pathogenic free rabbits and starting from a field sample of intestinal contents of diseased animals, a virulent material was obtained free of almost all known pathogens but reproduced the symptoms and lesions of ERE, demonstrating that the intestinal content was infectious as early as the second day.
Microbiological evaluation of jejunal aspirates and faecal samples after oral administration of bifidobacteria and lactic acid bacteria.
TLDR
It is shown that peroral administration of certain bacterial cultures may affect the distal intestinal microflora.
Bacterial Community Mapping of the Mouse Gastrointestinal Tract
TLDR
This is the first study to systematically characterize bacterial communities from the GI tracts of C57BL/6 mice, and it revealed that the gastric, duodenal, large intestinal and fecal samples had higher phylogenetic diversity than the jejunum and ileum samples did.
Role of Volatile Fatty Acids in Development of the Cecal Microflora in Broiler Chickens during Growth
TLDR
It is concluded that volatile fatty acids are responsible for the reduction in numbers of Enterobacteriaceae in the ceca of broiler chickens during growth.
