There is increasing evidence documenting the benefits of probiotic therapy for diarrheic dogs and cats, and this seminar will provide a comprehensive overview highlighting the rational selection of probiotics, with an emphasis on the quality of the manufacturer, bacterial strains, and number of CFUs (colony forming units). This seminar will also review specific studies that have been published in the peer-reviewed literature, while discussing the strengths and limitations of each study. Finally, the seminar will highlight other methods for modulating the intestinal microbiome, including the advent of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) and intestinal parasites.
