Abstract

Background: Research in humans and mice suggests that obesity influences the abundance and diversity of gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota, and that an "obese microbiome" influences energy metabolism and fat storage in the host. Microbiota membership and composition have been previously assessed in...

Abstract

The objectives were to determine the effects of feeding different fiber types to healthy cats and cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on plasma metabolites and the fecal microbiome. Methods: A cross-over study within a split-plot design was performed using healthy (n=10) and CKD cats [IRIS Stage ...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effects of increasing concentrations of spray-dried yeast cell wall (YCW) in diets for healthy adult cats on apparent nutrient digestibility and on bacterial composition and fermentation products in the stool. Fourteen cats with an average weight of 4.40±1.05 kg and an...

Abstract

Background: Intestinal dysbiosis has been documented in humans with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is thought to contribute to production of the uremic toxins indoxyl sulfate (IS) and p-cresol sulfate (pCS). Characteristics of the fecal microbiome in cats with CKD and correlation to serum...

Abstract

The yeast cell wall (YCW) seems to play an important role on the modulation of the intestinal microbiota. Their inclusion can inhibit pathogenic bacteria colonization and possible result in benefits on intestinal health. The feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) shows relative environmental...
