Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Dogs
The Scientific committee is honoured to announce the participation of Dr. Frederic Gaschen, from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, USA. Dr. Gaschen will present his recent study entitled « Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Dogs » during the symposium.
Abstract: In people, fecal microbiota transplantation is recognized as the best treatment modality for recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection in people, and its value is currently investigated in the treatment of other diseases associated with an abnormal gut microbiome. In dogs, intestinal dysbiosis has been documented in many acute and chronic digestive diseases as well as in diseases of other organ systems. There are only few published studies evaluating the benefits of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in canine gastrointestinal disorders. They provide evidence that FMT may be beneficial in the treatment of acute intestinal diseases and hope that the technique might also be useful for the management of chronic enteropathies.
