Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of Bacillus subtilis C-3102 on diet digestibility, fecal characteristics, and fecal microbiota of dogs. Sixteen adult Beagle dogs were randomly assigned to one of the two dietary treatments for 33 days: control (no B. subtilis C-3102, n = 8) and B. subtilis...

Abstract

A study investigating the use of a nonviable Lactobacillus acidophilus (NVL: Culbac; TransAgra, Storm Lake, IA) and a mixed prebiotic (MP) blend (beet pulp, fructooligosaccharide (FOS), mannanoligosaccharide (MOS), inulin, and kelp) was done to evaluate changes in fecal microbiota, fermentative end ...

Abstract

Human-grade (HG) pet foods are commercially available, but they have not been well studied. Our objective was to determine the apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) of HG pet foods and evaluate their effects on fecal characteristics, microbiota, and metabolites, serum metabolites, and...

Abstract

The identification of key biomarkers that differ between healthy animals and animals with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases may contribute to a deeper understanding of which diet-induced changes may be beneficial for the GI functionality of dogs. Thus, we conducted a systematic review and...

Abstract

Despite their popularity, little research has been performed on lightly cooked and raw diet formats for pets. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the apparent total-tract macronutrient digestibility (ATTD); fecal characteristics, metabolites, and microbiota; serum chemistry...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of cassava fiber (CA) concentrations and conventional fiber sources on coefficients of total tract apparent digestibility (CTTAD) and metabolizable energy (ME) of the diet, fecal characteristics, intestinal fermentation products, and fecal...

Abstract

The gut microbiota plays a crucial role in several physiologic functions of the host. In humans and animals, manipulation of the intestinal microbiota by oral administration of probiotic lactic acid bacteria plays a significant role in modulating the immune system. The aim of this study was to...

Abstract

Resistant starch (RS) is fermentable by gut microbiota and effectively modulates fecal short-chain fatty acid concentrations in pigs, mice, and humans. RS may have similar beneficial effects on the canine gut but has not been well studied. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of...

Abstract

Canine obesity is associated with reduced lifespan and metabolic dysfunction, but can be managed by dietary intervention. This study aimed to determine the effects of restricted feeding of a high-protein, high-fiber (HPHF) diet and weight loss on body composition, physical activity, blood...

Abstract

Prebiotics and dietary fibers are nondigestible ingredients that may confer benefits to the host by selectively stimulating beneficial intestinal bacteria and microbial-derived metabolites that support gut and host health. This experiment evaluated the effects of a blend of prebiotics and dietary...
