Reply To: Fecal microbiota transplantation in puppies with canine parvovirus infection

Sybil Dryburgh

Great topic!
1. would transplanting faeces from a skinny dog help an obese one. There certainly seems to be some evidence from humans but I am not sure of how good it is.
2. would transplanting faeces into a dog with chronic GI disease have the potential to precipitate something other than the effect you are looking for.
3. how would you rule out potential pathogens and still have a fresh viable population?
