Abstract

The occurrence and characteristics of Clostridioides previously Clostridiumdifficile and Clostridium perfringens in the feces of diarrheic and non-diarrheic cats was investigated. Apparently healthy animals were more likely to be positive for C. perfringens type A p = 0.009. Two isolates 0.7%, one...
