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

Objectives: Multiple feline diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, liver and biliary tract are known to cause abnormal serum cobalamin and folate concentrations. Measuring the serum concentration of these vitamins can therefore be a helpful diagnostic tool. However, factors other...

Abstract

Objectives: The objective of the study was to evaluate whether oral cobalamin supplementation can restore normocobal-aminaemia in cats with hypocobalaminaemia and clinical signs of gastrointestinal disease. Methods: This was a retrospective study based on a computerised database search for...

Abstract

Serum cobalamin and folate are often measured in cats and dogs as part of laboratory testing for intestinal disease, small intestinal dysbiosis, or exocrine pancreatic deficiency. We performed an analytical validation of human immunoassays for cobalamin and folate measurement (AIA-900 analyzer,...

Abstract

Hypocobalaminaemia is common in dogs and cats with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and/or chronic enteropathy. While hypocobalaminaemia has been extensively studied, naturally-occurring serum hypercobalaminaemia (i.e. without supplementation) might be an underestimated finding in small animal...

Abstract

Background: Hyperthyroidism, the most common endocrine disorder in cats, has been associated with low serum cobalamin concentrations. Whether this is a functional cobalamin deficiency of clinical importance has not been assessed. Hypothesis/Objectives: Cats with hyperthyroidism experience a...

Abstract

Cobalamin is a member of the B-group of vitamins and a cofactor for metabolic processes like nucleic acid synthesis, amino acid synthesis, and the citric acid cycle. Mammals are unable to synthesize cobalamin and therefore rely on adequate food intake. Cobalamin absorption is a complex process in...

Abstract

Fat digestibility is decreased in old cats for unknown reasons. Subclinical gastrointestinal diseases and pancreatic dysfunction, both related to ageing, can affect food digestibility. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the prevalence of subnormal cobalamin concentration and pancreatic...
